Your Voice Counts: Approved NYS Budget FundsTAP Increases

Posted by Deborah.Walker on Thursday April 3, 2014

Last month, word reached the Nyack College office of President Michael G. Scales that the New York Student Aid Alliance was soliciting support for an increase in Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) funding. Via email Dr. Scales, encouraged the campus community to rally around the effort and urged individuals to contact their state officials who would be considering the State budget. 

The TAP program had not seen an increase in a decade, while for 40 years these funds have helped millions of New York State residents pay for college.

In an email from Laura Anglin, president of the Commission on Independent Colleges and Universities, the good news arrived that the Senate and Assembly passed the SFY 2014-15 New York State Budget with the Governor and state legislators supporting TAP and opportunity program increases.
