A Report by the Board of Regents to the Governor and Legislators on State Student Financial Aid Programs.
State Univ. of New York, Albany. Office of the Regents.
Recent developments in New York State's student financial aid programs and the scope of federal programs in the state are examined, along with the relationship of state and federal programs. In addition, trends in awards and payments in the Tuition Assistance Program and overall recommendations of the Board of Regents are presented. Current trends include the following: loans and grants for 1981-1982 totaled $1,463.7 million, of which $283.4 million was for the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) and the Supplemental Tuition Assistance Program (STAP); of all state-administered student aid programs, the Guaranteed Student Loan Program showed the greatest increase; the estimated number of undergraduate TAP recipients in 1981-1982 increased by 2.5 percent from 1980-1981; and the average TAP award for undergraduates increased by an estimated 9.9 percent over the last year ($841 to $924). The Regents offer the following recommendations: elimination of $200 reduction in TAP awards for upper-division students; and extension of eligibility for TAP awards to part-time undergraduates. Statistical tables are presented that provide amounts of aid and number of recipients by program and level for each sector. Additional data report average aid amounts by program and level. (SW)
