NY State Residents - Apply for New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP)
Full-time undergraduate students who are residents of New York State may also apply for the New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP). This is a grant program, which means you don’t have to pay it back.
How it works:
After you submit the FAFSA, you will be provided with a link to your online TAP application. Once you complete your online TAP application and after the state higher education agency receives your FAFSA data, you will be sent an award certificate.
If you already have a tap application on file and need to add MCNY’s school code, please follow this link.
To contact the TAP office by phone, call 1-888-NYSHESC (1-888-697-4372).
Awards are based on New York State net taxable income and tuition charges.
Initial TAP awards are listed as estimates on the Financial Aid Award Letter. The estimates are based on income information provided on the FAFSA.
Students must sign a Master Promissory Note before receiving a federal loan for college. The promissory note is a legally binding agreement whereby the student agrees to repay the loan, accrued interest and fees to the Department of Education.
