Second Degree

According to New York State Education Law, an eligible student is entitled to up to four years of Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) awards: five years at the undergraduate level if the student is enrolled in an approved five-year program. Effective with the 2010-11 academic year and thereafter, New York State law does not provide TAP funding for graduate students.

TAP is available for students with remaining eligibility who enroll for a second degree at the undergraduate level. However, the law limits a student to three years of TAP if enrolled in a certificate program or an associate level degree program.
