Higher Education Services Corporation - Tuition Assistance Program

Erie Community College

During the 1994-95 through 1996-97 academic years, Erie Community College certified $19.7 million in Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) and Supplemental Tuition Assistance Program (STAP) awards. We disallowed $61,696 of these awards as well as $28,514 in awards that related to other academic years. The total $90,210 was disallowed because students were incorrectly certified as eligible for the awards. For example, some students received awards even though they did not maintain good academic standing, were not in full-time attendance, or did not meet certain STAP eligibility requirements.
