BIGGER ACCESS 8 BIGGER Access Educational Opportunity Program What is it? Who is eligible? The State University of New York's Educational Opportunity Program provides access, academic support and financial aid to students who show promise for succeeding in college but who may not otherwise be offered admission. Available to first-time, full-time, matriculated students, the program supports students throughout their college careers within the University. To be eligible for admission to the Educational Opportunity Program a student must: 1) be a New York State resident for 12 months prior to enrollment; 2) require alternate admissions consideration; and 3) qualify as economically disadvantaged according to the guidelines indicated. In selecting students for the program, priority is given to applicants from historically disadvantaged backgrounds. Admission is subject to program capacity. Support Services Educational Opportunity Program students receive both academic and financial support. Academic support services may include: personal counseling, academic advisement, tutoring, skill development workshops, supplemental instruction and mentoring. As part of the student's overall financial aid package, the Educational Opportunity Program provides modest financial aid to alleviate non-tuition expenses (e.g., books, supplies, etc.). Campus Participation The Educational Opportunity Program is available at all SUNY campuses with the exception of: Empire State College, and Cayuga, Clinton, Columbia-Greene, Corning, Herkimer County, Jamestown, Mohawk Valley, Nassau, North Country, Rockland, Sullivan County and Tompkins Cortland Community Colleges. Fee Waiver Students submitting applications for EOP consideration may qualify for application fee waivers for their first four campus choices. If the applicant does not meet both academic and economic eligibility guidelines or, if the campus does not operate an Educational Opportunity Program, the student will be billed for the fee. 2016-17 EOP Income Guidelines* Household Size (Including head of household) Total Annual Income in Previous Calendar Year 1 21,978 2 29,637 3 37,296 4 44,955 5 52,614 6 60,273 7 67,951 8 75,647** To be eligible for the program as a transfer, a student must have been enrolled in the EOP, CD/SEEK, HEOP or a similar program at his or her previous college.

Eligibility guidelines may be adjusted slightly each year. NOTE: Eligibility does not guarantee admission. Applicants not admitted through EOP may still qualify for admission and financial aid through other admissions processes.
