Educational Opportunity Program (EOP)

The purpose of the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) is to fulfill New York state's commitment ( to provide access, academic support and financial aid to students who show promise for succeeding in college but who may not otherwise be offered admission. The primary mission of EOP is to facilitate the recruitment, enrollment, retention, and graduation of these students. This is accomplished by providing EOP students with an array of educationally related support services and opportunities including our mandatory four-week EOP Summer Program for incoming EOP Freshmen.

SUNY Oswego's EOP program has a current funded enrollment of 333 students, enrolls an average of 90 incoming freshmen each year and has a freshman-to-sophomore retention rate of 85 percent.
