Tuition Advantage Program

What is TAP?

The Tuition Advantage Program (TAP) is a benefit for students enrolled in Joint Admissions programs.

If you complete your NSCC degree and have a 3.0 GPA upon graduation, TAP entitles you to a 33% reduction on in-state tuition for your first year at the state college or university to which you transfer. Students who maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA their first year at the 4-year school can receive the discount again for their second year.

NOTE: Not all NSCC graduates with a 3.0 GPA are eligible for the TAP discount. Only graduates who are in pre-approved joint admissions programs with specific 4-year schools are eligible.


How do I qualify for TAP?

To take advantage of the Tuition Advantage Program, follow the steps outlined on the Joint Admissions page. You must graduate from NSCC with at least a 3.0 GPA to qualify.

NOTE: Procedures to claim your Tuition Advantage benefits vary from college to college. Contact Peter Monaco for help with this process at (978) 762-4000 x6688 or pmonaco@northshore.edu.
