NYS TAP denied

<p>I just received notice that my NYS Tuition Assistance was denied. I believe it's because I made just over the $10,000 limit last tax year. Is there any appealing this? I only made 3,000 over this limit and don't feel it was just.</p>

<p>Not sure what to do now...</p>

<p>10,500 is "just" over the limit. $3000 is not just over the limit. it is 30% more than the guidelines.</p>

<p>Are you an independent student with no other dependents? If so, doesn't the $10K limit apply to NYS TAXABLE income? Check your NY tax form and verify that you had more than that. If you didn't, call HESC to find out why you were denied.</p>
