  • Intent
    • To ensure students receiving TAP and not needing remedial instruction or a small amount of remedial instruction demonstrate sufficient academic progress to complete their programs in a timely manner

Remedial Students and SAP
  • Returning students who “fall in the gap” between the 2006 and 2010 SAP, will be deemed remedial students for the 2010-2011 academic year only and will continue to be eligible for TAP while progressing to the level of academic performance necessary for the new SAP standards for the 2011-2012 academic year
express tap application eta
Express TAP Application (ETA)
  • HESC ceased automatically mailing paper applications with 2010-11 academic year
    • Prior to 2010-11, HESC printed and mailed ETAs to students whose ISIR was selected based on NYS residency, choice of NYS schools, etc.
    • Of these applications, only 25% were actually returned and processed
    • Considerations:
      • Waste of resources
      • Privacy issues
      • Costly
new process eta by request
New Process: ETA by Request
  • No automatic printing and mailing of ETAs
  • ETA printed only upon request by student or school:
    • Student can call HESC or request online
    • School can request ETA to be sent using Request TAP Form link (previously used to request duplicates)
    • School will continue to have the on-site print function under Reports/Standard Reports
new process eta by request17
New Process: ETA by Request
  • Same prefilled application based on FAFSA data!
  • Instead of creating the file to get a paper application 2-3 weeks after ISIR selection, the print function will be available 1 or 2 days after ISIR selection
proposed application deadline change for 2010 2011
Proposed Application Deadline Change for 2010-2011
  • New regulation makes TAP application deadline the same as FAFSA deadline: June 30
  • Commences with the 2010-2011 academic year
Where We Are…

Multiple Scholarship Processing

multiple scholarship processing
Multiple Scholarship Processing


  • HESC’s core TAP System (mainframe) can only process one scholarship for each student for any given year
  • New scholarships necessitated the development of more useful tools to expedite processing
multiple scholarship processing21
Multiple Scholarship Processing


  • Most scholarships and TAP awards are processed on the core TAP system
  • Some programs, such as Memorial programs, cannot be correctly calculated due to field size limitations
    • These are calculated, put on rosters and certified using the Consolidated Scholarship Roster (CSR) system with expanded field sizes
multiple scholarship processing22
Multiple Scholarship Processing


  • When the student holds 2 scholarships e.g., the Scholarship for Academic Excellence (SAE) and NYS Lottery’s Leaders of Tomorrow Scholarship (LOT)
    • LOT is paid on the core TAP system
    • SAE on the CSR
  • All Robert C. Byrd Honors Scholarships are paid on the CSR
multiple scholarship processing23
Multiple Scholarship Processing


  • Completely parallel processing
    • CSR rosters and RAs are paper
    • TAP rosters and RAs are electronic
  • Both rosters and RAs produced at same time according to TAP processing schedule on HESC.org
    • CSR = paper printed from HESC Standard Reports
    • Mainframe = web or electronic files
