New York State residents only.
If you received TAP last year
TAP has a multi-year application process, so if you received TAP last year you may not need to apply again. However, you do need to file the FAFSA every year to be considered for TAP.
Based on information on file and in your FAFSA, NYSHESC will email you with eligibility and award information. You should verify that all information is correct. If any information is incorrect, you should submit a TAP change form, which will appear as a link in the email message you receive.
If you have never applied for TAP
After completing your FAFSA online, you can proceed immediately to the TAP application by clicking the link on the FAFSA confirmation page. If you don’t apply at that time, you will have to wait five business days for your FAFSA information to be received by TAP and can apply at the following page.
