New York State Higher Education Services Corporation. 1995-96 Annual Report.
New York State Higher Education Services Corp., Albany.
This report describes the activities of the New York State Higher Education Services Corporation (HESC) during the 1995-96 fiscal year. It provides an overview of student and parent financial aid programs, including the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP), the largest state grant program in the United States. Major advances reported for 1995-96 included efforts to emphasize student access, college affordability, and academic achievement, such as legislation that will permit HESC to join with the federal government and out-of-state colleges to guarantee student loans in other states, advances in default prevention, and growth in HESC's electronic funds transfer program. Seventeen tables provide data on student loans (including number and amount of loans guaranteed, loans outstanding, collections on defaulted loans, and default purchases and trigger rates), grants and scholarships (including TAP recipients and expenditures by level of study and institution type and number and dollar amount of scholarships and awards), aid administered by HESC, aid applications received and processed, training workshops, customer services, and publication and video distribution. The report also includes financial statements. (MDM)
