Higher Education Services Corporation - Tuition Assistance Program

Bronx Community College

During the 1994-95 through 1996-97 academic years, Bronx Community College certified $27.8 million in Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) and Supplemental Tuition Assistance Program (STAP) awards. We disallowed $184,040 of these awards as well as $7,086 in awards that related to other academic years. The total $191,126 was disallowed because students were incorrectly certified as eligible for the awards. For example, some students received awards even though they did not meet New York State residency requirements, did not maintain good academic standing, or did not meet certain STAP requirements.
