Educational Opportunity Program

Succeed with EOP

The Educational Opportunity Program is designed for students who have the ability and talent to succeed in college, but have had limited academic and financial options to prove their dedication. EOP is for students who do not meet the traditional admissions standards but prove the desire and potential to earn a college degree. It provides supplemental support in tutoring, counseling and financial aid to eligible students.

  • Support from application to graduation — we are your family through your college journey!
  • Academic and social counseling, tutoring, and financial services — everything you need to succeed!
  • Life skills, leadership, individual development — achieve more than a degree!
  • Required Four-Week Summer College Program: prepares you for success at SUNY Delhi and beyond.

Student Testimonials

Musa Kanneh

The EOP counselors are amazing. They encourage me to keep pushing, not to give up, and remind me that it gets better and I belong here. They stay on campus way past their hours to meet our needs, even when their own families are waiting at home. I hope I have that same devotion to my future career.

EOP is a family! Whenever I needed anything, the staff, mentors, and peers were always in my corner. They made me feel like a stronger, braver person, and I always felt like I belonged. I can truly say I’m a better person because of EOP.
