EOP: Educational Opportunity Program
The Educational Opportunity Program provides access to higher education for students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds who possess the potential to succeed in college but whose academic preparation in high school may otherwise prevent them from receiving admission.
EOP provides an array of educational support services and opportunities, including modest funding to alleviate non-tuition costs (such as books and supplies), academic planning counselors and campus-wide tutoring.
For detailed information about EOP eligibility and income eligibility guidelines, visit the SUNY website.
If you were enrolled in EOP, HEOP, College Discovery, SEEK or similar type program at a previous institution, you are eligible for EOP at SUNY Oswego. The admissions office will verify your status with your prior college.
If you’ve attended an institution that does not offer EOP or similar programs, contact the Office of Admissions regarding eligibility requirements.
Freshmen admitted to SUNY Oswego through EOP are required to attend a mandatory four-week summer program in July prior to the start of the fall semester. Transfers do not need to attend.
Enrollment at Oswego is contingent upon successful completion of this program. For additional information and questions about the summer program, contact the EOP Office at 315.312.3094 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
