follows:
  3. Degree awards. The amount of  such  annual  apportionment  to  each

five hundred dollars the number of earned bachelor's degrees, by not  to
exceed nine hundred fifty dollars the number of earned master's degrees,
and by not to exceed four thousand five hundred fifty dollars the number
of  earned  doctorate  degrees, conferred by such institution during the
twelve-month period next preceding the  annual  period  for  which  such
apportionment  is  made,  provided that there shall be excluded from any
such computation the number of degrees earned by students  with  respect
to whom state aid other than that established by this section or section
sixty-four  hundred  one-a  of  this  article is granted directly to the
institution, and provided further that, except as otherwise provided  in
this  subdivision,  the amount apportioned for an associate degree shall
be awarded only to two year institutions  qualifying  under  subdivision
two  of  this  section.  The regents shall promulgate rules defining and
classifying professional degrees  for  the  purposes  of  this  section.
Institutions  qualifying  for  state  aid  pursuant to the provisions of
paragraph (b) of subdivision two of this section shall, for purposes  of
this subdivision, be deemed to be the institutions which confer degrees.
