Apply for New York State Aid
All New York State residents should apply for New York State financial aid after completing their FAFSA.
Full-time students may be eligible for the New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP). TAP is a grant, so it does not have to be paid back and it can provide assistance up to full tuition costs! Part-time aid programs are part of New York State’s grant assistance, so that money also does not have to be paid back. Applying is free and easy, and the Financial Aid Office is here to help. The OCC TAP School Code is 2185
