Applicants for EOP consideration must:

  1. Meet specific income guidelines.
  2. Be an NYS resident for 12 months prior to enrollment.
  3. Require special admissions consideration.

EOP First-Year Students

EOP provides an array of educational support services and opportunities, including modest funding to alleviate non-tuition costs (such as books and supplies), dedicated EOP academic planning counselors and free campus-wide support services.   

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. However, applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible in order to receive the fullest possible consideration. Please visit the EOP admissions website for steps on how to submit your application.

Educational Opportunity Program Students on campus

EOP Summer Program:

First year students admitted to SUNY Oswego through EOP are required to attend a mandatory four-week EOP summer program in July prior to the start of the fall semester. Transfer students do not need to attend.

EOP Transfer Students

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.  

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. However, applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible in order to receive the fullest possible consideration. Please visit the transfer admissions website for steps on how to submit your application.

Learn More About EOP

Below are opportunities to learn more about SUNY Oswego’s Educational Opportunity Program.

  1. Information Sessions: During our information sessions, you will meet the EOP staff, and learn about the EOP program at SUNY Oswego. You will also have the opportunity to talk to some of our current EOP students. Dates to be announced. 
  2. Meet your EOP Advisor: Once you have been accepted into SUNY Oswego, your EOP advisor will personally reach out to each student and answer questions to help facilitate the admissions process. 
  3. Meet and Greets: Although it is strongly encouraged that each student visits the campus prior to making their college selection decision, EOP recognizes that this is not always possible. In collaboration with our Admissions Office, we will host an Admitted EOP Student Reception for students and their families. We ask that every admitted EOP student attends this reception in order to meet staff and students, gain a better understanding of our college, our EOP program, and our expectations.
  4. EOP Summer Program: All incoming EOP first year students are required to attend and successfully complete our summer program in order to enroll at SUNY Oswego in the fall semester. This is great time to get to know your EOP counselors and other incoming EOP first year students.
