Payment Points

The NYS Higher Education Services Corporation maintains records of student TAP awards by assigning points for each payment. A full semester TAP award equals six (6) payment points; a trimester or quarter award equals four (4) payment points; and a half-time award equals three (3) payment points. PT TAP and PT VTA points will reflect prorated points based on the certified number of credits a student is enrolled in.

As provided in Education Law, an undergraduate student has a total of four years (or a total of 48 points) of award eligibility or five years (or 60 points) if enrolled in an approved five-year program.
