Federal Work-Study

Tuition Assistance Program (TAP)

Will my previous use of TAP at another college affect my eligibility at BMCC?

Yes. Your prior use of TAP at another college can affect your eligibility at BMCC in the following ways:

  1. You cannot receive more than 6 semesters of TAP as an associate degree student regardless of the number of schools you attend.
  2. If you received TAP previously at any other college or post-secondary institution, you must have at least 6 degree credits as part of your full-time course load at BMCC. If you must take remedial courses at BMCC after having used TAP elsewhere, you must plan your program carefully to meet the TAP 6 degree credit enrollment requirement.
  3. You will be evaluated for the NYS Good Academic Standing requirements either by the number of credits BMCC has accepted or by the number of TAP payments you have already received, whichever option would most benefit you.
