Educational Opportunity Program (EOP)
The Arthur O. Eve Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) provides access to higher education and a means of academic support for eligible students who have not yet reached their academic potential due to educational and economic barriers.
EOP is not a financial aid program. For more information, please visit the Educational Opportunity Program website.
- New York State residents
- Students who have received a New York State high school diploma or its equivalent
- U.S. citizens or permanent residents who are able to provide a copy of the permanent resident card
- Families/students who meet the EOP financial eligibility guidelines
First-year (freshman) applicants must demonstrate a need for financial support and meet the university’s EOP academic criteria. GED graduates should have a minimum overall score of 2400.
Applicants who were previously enrolled in EOP or a similar program (e.g., HEOP, SEEK, College Discovery) are eligible for transfer admission. In order to receive consideration for transfer admission to the University at Buffalo, students must present a strong record of college study, earning a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.5 on a 4.0 scale. However, requirements may vary depending on academic program. Verification of previous participation in an EOP-type program from each school attended is required. Applicants from a CUNY campus will be considered for EOP if they were eligible for such a program but were not selected through the lottery system.
How to Apply
EOP applicants may use the Common Application or the SUNY Application.
