The processing of a TAP application may take from three to five weeks.
Consequently, how do I know if I applied for tap?
To get an idea of your potential TAP award, use the TAP Award Estimator. After your TAP application is processed, HESC will notify you by email to log into your HESC account to view the status of your TAP award.
Additionally, how do I apply for tap without fafsa?
If you are a New York State resident attending college in New York State, apply for TAP. Click on the "Start your state application" link on the online FAFSA confirmation page to complete your TAP application after submitting the FAFSA. Or, if you already filed the FAFSA apply for TAP now through the HESC Website.
How do I make changes to my tap application?
You may make school code changes online by visiting your HESC account through Student Access. Alternatively, you may make a change to the school code and/or student address by calling the HESC Customer Communication Center at 888-NYS-HESC (888-697-4372) and speaking with a representative.
Why did I get a Pell Grant?
The Federal Pell Grant Program provides need-based grants to low-income undergraduate and certain postbaccalaureate students to promote access to postsecondary education. Students may not receive Federal Pell Grant funds from more than one school at a time.
