WOODBURY - ? There is a new push to keep tuition affordable for thousands of students at Suffolk Community College.

According to Newsday, there is a plan to scale back a proposed tuition hike at the school. The plan would prevent the tuition from soaring to $4,000 a semester which would make it the most expensive community college in the state.
