New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP)
Students enrolling in a full-time program, including the allied health programs with the Mandl in New York, may apply for awards that range from $275 to $5,000 per academic year. Awards may not exceed cost of tuition and are subject to State funding and award levels.
To apply for TAP students enrolled at our College must complete the FAFSA and the New York State TAP application.
State Student Financial Aid Academic Standing Requirements
for Maintaining Eligibility
To receive payment under New York State student financial aid programs, students must maintain good academic standing. Failure to pursue a program of study or to make satisfactory academic progress can result in the student not being eligible for State financial aid.
Good academic standing consists of two elements:
1. Pursuit of Program, a requirement that a student complete a certain percentage of credits each term.
2. Satisfactory Academic Progress, a requirement that a student accumulates a specified number of credits and achieves a specified cumulative grade point average each term.
If an award recipient fails to maintain both elements of good academic standing, payment of any award for subsequent terms is suspended until the student is reinstated in good academic standing.
1. Pursuit of Program: Program pursuit is defined as receiving a passing or failing grade in a certain percentage of a full-time course load. The percentage increases from 50 percent of the minimum full-time load in each term of study in the first year for which an award is made, to 75 percent of the minimum full-time load in each term of study in the second year for which an award is made, to 100 percent of the minimum full-time load in each term of study in the third and each succeeding year for which an award is made. Withdrawal grades (W) are not counted towards meeting the program pursuit requirement. The minimum full-time course load per term is 12 credits. Our Manhattan school offers two certificate programs and five associate’s degree programs (60 credit hours or more).
2. Satisfactory Academic Progress: Minimum satisfactory academic progress requirements to receive payment of awards are different from the satisfactory academic progress requirements for academic purposes, which are outlined in detail in the Academic Policies section of this catalog.
Students enrolled in one of the Mandl’s degree programs must complete the program within three years of program entry or financial aid will be jeopardized. Certificate program students must complete within one and one-half years of program entry.
Students who are on academic probation or who have been advised that they are not making satisfactory academic progress may request a review of such determination. After an initial review by the Financial Aid Office, an appeal, if appropriate, may be made to the Financial Aid Director. Mitigating or special circumstances may be considered during the initial review and appeal.
