New York State Financial Aid Programs

Tuition Assistance Program: The New York State Tuition Assistance Program provides awards to eligible, full-time, undergraduate students. Awards are for New York State residents and are based on applicant/family New York State net taxable income. Eligible applicants must:

  • study full time (12 credits applicable to degree program per semester),
  • provide proof of high school diploma or equivalent, as defined by NYSHESC
  • be a New York State resident,
  • be either a U.S. citizen, or eligible noncitizen,
  • be charged tuition of $200 or more per year,
  • be matriculated in an approved program of study in New York State,
  • maintain good academic standing,
  • not be in default on a student loan guaranteed by NYSHESC and not be in default on any repayment of State awards,
  • and declare a major by the time 56 s.h. are earned.

Students must apply annually for this grant. Students first complete the FAFSA and then a TAP on the web application. Applications must be completed by the student and parents and submitted to no later than May 1 of the academic year for which the award is intended. NYSHESC calculates the award and sends the student an award certificate.

Award amounts may change for any given academic year due to legislative action. Undergraduate students may receive TAP for up to 4 years (8 semesters) of undergraduate study; 5 years if enrolled in an approved 5-year program. Students enrolled in 2-year associate degree programs cannot receive more than three years of TAP. The total limit is 4 years (8 semesters) of combined undergraduate awards.

NYSHESC also offers other awards, including but not limited to: Award for Child of Veteran, Vietnam Veteran Tuition Awards, World Trade Center Memorial Scholarship, NYS aid to Native Americans and Memorial Scholarships for Families of Deceased Police Officers and Firefighters. Complete listing of award and current instructions can be found at
