In addition to federal and state financial aid and campus scholarships, SUNY Morrisville has also established the Student Hardship fund to assist students who have a sudden hardship, making it so they can continue to attend college. Students must apply for consideration for hardship funding and the hardship must be verified by a professor or advisor. Students also have the option to search for courses that utilize free or low-cost materials (Open Education Resources). They can access textbooks on reserve for select classes at the Butcher Library if they are unable to afford to purchase their own copy.
