Higher Education Services Corporation - Tuition Assistance Program

State University of New York College at Old Westbury

During the 1998-99 through 2000-2001 academic years, the State University of New York College at Old Westbury certified $9.2 million in Tuition Assistance Program awards. We disallowed $172,736 of these awards as well as $12,331 for awards that related to other academic years. The total $185,067 was disallowed because students were incorrectly certified as eligible for the awards. For example, some students received awards even though they were not in full-time attendance, or did not maintain good academic standing.
