Tuition Assistance Program (TAP)

How much will my TAP or PTAP award be each semester?

The amount of TAP you receive depends on your family income, the number of family members attending college full-time, the number of semesters you have received TAP, and the size of the annual appropriation for the program. Maximum TAP awards can be equal to but not greater than the full tuition charge at BMCC. State budgetary restrictions can further limit TAP awards to a portion of your tuition.

A PTAP award will be based on your part-time credit load and will be calculated as a proportional fraction of the normal full-time TAP award.

How many semesters can I receive TAP? or PTAP?
