Important Facts About The Arthur O. Eve Educational Opportunity Program

The Arthur O. Eve Educational Opportunity Program (EOP), a parallel of CUNY’s SEEK programs, was extended to the State University of New York in 1968 in order to provide traditionally by-passed residents of New York State with access to higher education. The program is aimed at students who have the potential to complete a college degree but do not meet the general admission requirements because their academic credentials may have been adversely affected during their high school years by economic factors. Applicants are required to provide specific supporting and verifying documentation before admission decisions will be rendered. Specific state economic guidelines must be followed, and campus interviews may be required for some applicants.

The major objective of SUNY Geneseo’s Arthur O. Eve Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) is to provide higher education opportunities to state residents whose academic achievement levels may have been influenced by income factors. The second objective is to aid EOP students in identifying financial resources for educational costs. The third objective is to provide personal and individual academic support services to enhance their chances for academic success.

The Arthur O. Eve Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) is a statewide, special admissions program that provides academic, personal and tutorial assistance for historically, under represented minority group students. Students admitted through EOP often do not meet the general admission guidelines, but do have other intrinsic strengths and academic qualities that make them ideal candidates for admission.  Note: Applicants cannot apply for both EOP and Early Decision/Early Action programs.
