Welcome to the New York State Student Aid Payment Application! This online application process allows you to apply for New York State's Tuition Assistance Program (TAP). The New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) helps eligible New York residents pay tuition at approved schools in New York State. An annual TAP award can be up to $5,665. Because TAP is a grant, it does not have to be paid back. TAP is available to students attending a SUNY, CUNY or not-for-profit independent degree-granting colleges on a full or part-time basis.

Students who do not meet residency requirements may be eligible for TAP through the NYS DREAM Act.

Students already approved for other New York State scholarships should also complete the New York State Student Aid payment application to request payment.

A HESCPin account is required to apply. If you currently do not have one, you will be required to create an account prior to completing your application.

TAP may be unavailable every Sunday from 1:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
