  • All Students must register for 12 or more credits in their major for both sessions by the 7th day of the Fall and/or Spring Term.
  • Financial Aid for each TERM will be disbursed during Session 1 (Please note the following changes) 
    • Students who are part-time in session 1 and do not pre-register for session 2 classes by the 7th day of the Term will not receive any additional Financial Aid for session 2.
    • Students who pre-register for Session 2 and do not attend any classes in Session 2 will be responsible to repay any financial aid received for session 2 classes.
  • For the New York State TAP award, a student cannot be certified full time until the beginning of the second module of the term (session 2), when the student’s course load is at least 12 or more credits in their major.
    • For example: John is registered for 9 degree-applicable credits in session 1 and 3 degree-applicable credits for session 2. John's TAP will only be certified and disbursed once he begins attendance in session 2. However, John will not be responsible for paying tuition in the amount of his awarded TAP.
