Part-time students are now eligible for New York’s Tuition Assistance Program, Governor Kathy Hochul announced today.
Hochul said the $150 million expansion of TAP will make assistance available to an additional 75,00 students who are pursuing their degree part-time.
Prior to the expansion, TAP was only available to full-time students.
TAP awards can be up to $5,665 annually for full-time students, according to a release from Hochul’s office.
Awards will be available on a pro-rated basis to eligible students taking six to 11 credits per semester.
Hochul made the announcement on Thursday, August 18 during an event at the Borough of Manhattan Community College.
