Prospective students

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.
