ABOUT CUTS TO TUITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM FUNDING
 
 
 
Photo Caption: Berkeley College recently participated in the Association of Proprietary Colleges Student Lobby Day, designed to communicate the needs of students to state leaders. Berkeley College students and associates met with members of the New York State Senate and Assembly and asked them to restore Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) funding cuts proposed in the state budget. Students explained how the funds are vital to their education and important in order to maintain a trained workforce that will attract new business for New York State. Left to right are Berkeley College Assistant Operating Officer, New York City Midtown Campus, Evan Miller; Berkeley College Vice President, Student Development and Campus Life, Thomas L. Thomas, PhD; Assemblywoman and Berkeley College alumna Margaret Markey (D-30th); and Berkeley College students Arjune Sharma of the Bronx and Andrea Regis of Brooklyn.
