New York State Tuition Assistance Program

The New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) provides
nonrepayable grant assistance of up to $550 annually for New York
State residents enrolled on a full-time basis in a New York State school.
Awards are based on net New York State taxable income and the
number of full-time college students in a household. Graduate student
eligibility may depend on the amount of funds allocated by the state in
a given year. Applications and further information about the program
can be obtained from the New York State Higher Education Services
Corporation (NYSHESC), 99 Washington Avenue, Albany, NY 12255.
Students applying for a New York State TAP award must submit the New York State TAP application and the FAFSA. The BGC’s college code for the TAP application is 5745.
