ISAC-MAP PROGRAM-SUMMER ASSIST
Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the Higher Education Student Assistance Act. Provides
that if a student who receives a MAP award as a full-time
undergraduate student has not received the maximum grant for the
academic year in which the grant is awarded because of a change in his
or her full-time enrollment status before the summer term of that
academic year begins, the Commission shall provide summer term
assistance to the student if the student applies and remains MAP
eligible. Provides that the amount of summer term assistance provided
may not cause the aggregate amount of the grant received by the
student for the academic year to exceed the maximum MAP award
available for full-time enrollment for that academic year. Effective
July 1, 1998.
FISCAL NOTE (Student Assistance Commission)
HB 3749 has no fiscal impact upon State revenue, but the
Commission estimates it will reduce between 1,000 and 3,000
the number students who receive MAP awards during the regular
SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.
Replaces the summer term assistance grant provisions of the en-
grossed bill with provisions under which, beginning with FY2000 and
subject to a separate appropriation being made for summer school
grants, a student who receives a regular term grant and who enrolls
in summer school classes is eligible for a summer school grant in an
amount not exceeding the lesser of 50% of the maximum annual monetary
award grant amount or the actual tuition and fee costs at the institu-
tion at which the student is enrolled at least half-time.
FISCAL NOTE, S-AM 1 (Student Assistance Commission)
