ALBANY, N.Y. - New York launches a new website to help students finance their education. 

A press release says the website, includes a Student Lending Resource Center with tips, advice, and other information to help students make smart, long-term financial choices when financing their educations. 

“This new website will make it easier than ever for New Yorkers to make informed choices about paying for college,” Governor Cuomo said. “The Student Protection Unit is the State’s leading advocate for college students and their families, and by launching this website we are empowering New Yorkers with the information they need to properly finance their education and plan for a strong financial future.”

The website provides students and parents information on financial aid, paying for college, loans, tax credits, and other resources to help make financial decisions about college. 

Any New Yorker who would like to file a complaint with the Cuomo Administration's Student Protection Unit about a student debt relief company or other potential abuses can contact the Department of Financial Services Consumer Hotline at (212) 480-6400 or (800) 342-3736 for assistance or use the DFS Student Protection Unit website.
