  2. You must also have attended full time for the Spring 1 term.
  3. You must be in good academic standing with the university.
  4. You must meet all other eligibility for being awarded TAP.
  5. You must be enrolled in at least 1 course that meets the 15 week requirement per term in order to be eligible for New York State aid, or enrolled (at the start of the term) in two consecutive sessions that together make up the 15-week requirement.
