Boricua College, New York City

During the 1990-91 through 1992-93 academic years, the College certified $9.5 million in TAP and STAP awards. We disallowed $400,528 from these and other awards relating to prior academic years, because students were incorrectly certified as eligible for the awards. For example, several students were certified as eligible for the awards even though they did not maintain good academic standing or meet State residency requirements. 94-T-7
