Access Opportunity Programs (AOP)

The Isom E. Fearn Acces Opportunity Programs (AOP) serves as the College's means of meeting the higher educational aspirations of academically talented students who are under-represented at the post-secondary level of education.  This includes underrepresented minority students (as identified by the U.S. Census), first-generation college students, and student from high schools which are identified as serving low-income and/or rural students.  The programs that are united under the AOP department are the Arthur O. Eve Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) and the Transitional Opportunity Program (TOP). While the programs serve different segments of society, they both provide educational access opportunities and academic support services to participants.
