Interinstitutional Study

A student who is matriculated at a TAP-eligible New York State institution can take courses at another TAP-eligible institution in the State as all or part of the minimum full-time course load for financial aid purposes under the following conditions:

  • The “home” institution--where the student is matriculated--gives prior approval for the course work;
  • The completed courses are accepted by the home institution toward the student’s degree requirements.


The home institution certifies the student’s eligibility and the award is based on the tuition charged by the institution the student attends.
