New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP)
Swedish Institute participates in the New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) coordinated by the New York State Higher Education Services Corporation (HESC). TAP grants are income-based and the amount of the grant is determined by income level, dependent or independent status and other factors. They do not have to be repaid. Information about applying for TAP is available in the Financial Aid Office.
The TAP program is only available to students carrying a full-time course load and continuing eligibility requires that a student maintain satisfactory academic progress (see section on Academic Standards and Financial Aid, below). Further information is available at www.hesc.com.
The TAP program also provides support for qualified students attending on a part-time basis. Please see the Financial Aid Office for further information about part-time TAP funds.
