The New York State Aid for Part-Time Study Program: A Progress Report, 1995-96.
New York State Higher Education Services Corp., Albany.
This report provides data on New York State's Aid for Part-Time Study (APTS) Program for the 1995-96 academic year. First authorized by the state legislature in 1984, the APTS program provides tuition awards to part-time students enrolled in a program leading to an undergraduate degree or certificate. Twelve tables provide data by institution type in regard to allocations, award amounts, actual expenditures for reimbursement of awards, aid as a percentage of allocations, recipients who did not maintain a cumulative passing average, and amounts not reimbursed by schools for academic years beginning in 1991 through 1995. During 1995-96 APTS awards were made by 186 schools to 23,675 students. The $13,405,700 in state-reimbursed APTS awards was 92 percent of the $14,599,900 allocated, slightly higher than the 90 percent used in 1994-95. The average award for 1994-95 was $566, up from $543 in the previous year. An appendix lists allocations, state reimbursed award dollars, number of recipients, and average awards by institution.
