In order to ensure fairness among all students and colleges in the Say Yes Compact, Say Yes Syracuse will be implementing hard deadlines for financial aid and Say Yes applications beginning in the 2021-2022 academic year. Students must adhere to the following hard and steadfast deadlines in order to receive Say Yes Syracuse scholarship awards.
July 1 – Say Yes Syracuse application deadline How to Apply
Say Yes covers the cost of tuition after financial aid (FAFSA and TAP) is applied, so we recommend that you first complete your financial aid applications (both FAFSA and TAP) in the spring. Then, the deadline to apply for a Say Yes scholarship is July 1 following your high school graduation.
