The TAP Award Estimator offers an estimate of the New York State Tuition Assistance Program award you may receive as a full-time undergraduate student only. The TAP Award Estimator is NOT a TAP application.

Please note: This is not an application for TAP. It provides estimated awards. Please consult with your Financial Aid officer for all financial aid information specific to you. The estimated award is only for full-time undergraduate study.

Instructions: To save you time, we'll take you to the appropriate version of the TAP Estimator based on your answer to the following question. Please select the correct academic year and student financial aid status, either 'Dependent' or 'Independent' and click on the 'Next' button. If you are unsure of the student's financial status select 'Independent'.


* The TAP Estimator is a tool to illustrate the current formula for TAP awards. It is not a predictor of your individual award and you should not rely on the Estimator in making your individual financial decisions. The Estimator functions based on the current TAP formula in law. It is subject to change.

Important Notice: TAP Estimator Tool Update

The TAP Estimator tool is temporarily unavailable as we update it with the new TAP formulas for the 2024-25 academic year. We are working diligently to ensure the updated tool is accurate and reliable.

The updated TAP Estimator tool will be relaunched soon. We appreciate your understanding and patience during this time.
