The Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) at SUNYIT is a grant-funded initiative that focuses on access and equity. In 1970, the New York State Legislature approved funding for EOP to address the needs of those New York State residents who are bypassed by higher education.
Since the inception of the program, more than 40,000 students have received degrees statewide. Specifically, EOP is designed to seek out educationally under prepared and talented students, and to provide them with tutorial services, counseling, advisement, and financial assistance. Students are encouraged to take advantage of any and all of the program's support services.
EOP is the quintessential means to fulfilling SUNY's policy that "every student capable of completing a program of higher education shall have the opportunity to do so.
