Admissions Requirements

New Students

You must be a resident of New York State and demonstrate both academic and economic need to qualify for the HEOP program. To be  considered for the program, you will either need to be referred by an admissions counselor, or contact the HEOP program and express an interest. Economic eligibility is determined by income guidelines issued by the New York State Education Department.

Since SAT scores may not thoroughly reflect a student's potential for success at the School of Engineering, an intake interview with each applicant is an essential part of the HEOP admissions process. During the interview a HEOP staff member will discuss your academic strengths and weaknesses, and give a basic overview of what to expect at the School of Engineering.
 

Transfer Students

If you are a transfer student who wishes to transfer into the School of Engineering's HEOP program, you must have been in an opportunity program (HEOP, EOP, SEEK, etc.) at your previous institution. You must also complete an admissions transfer application. You will be considered based on your academics and your individual circumstances. The HEOP director will review your college transcript(s) and recommendations from counselors or professors, and will send his/her decision to the Office of Admissions.
