EOP Verification

EOP Verification

First-time freshmen who have applied for admission to SUNY Delhi through the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) for Fall 2023 must meet certain academic and economic eligibility requirements. If being consider for our EOP Program, applicants will receive communications from Student Financial Services with their next steps in January 2023.

Visit the EOP Office web page for more information about the program at SUNY Delhi.

EOP Financial Verification Process

Economic Eligibility Overview

The verification process requires a historical review of the household size and total annual income. Total annual income includes all taxable and non-taxable funds that are received by the household for general use. Such funds may be derived from sources such as wages, dividends, interest, social security, disability pensions, veteran's benefits and unemployment benefits. For more information on the economic eligibility requirements, visit the SUNY Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) web page.

Step 1: Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

Complete and submit the 2023-2024 FAFSA using 2021 income information. 

  • To begin, create a Federal Student Aid ID (FSA ID) and, if dependent, a parent must also create their own ID.  Safely store your ID for each subsequent year that you apply for federal financial aid.
  • Complete and submit the online FAFSA as accurately as possible.
  • Add SUNY Delhi as a school of choice using our school code of '002857.'

Step 2: Apply for NYS Aid

Complete and submit the 2023-2024 NYS Aid Application using 2021 income information. 

After submission of the FAFSA, the confirmation page should provide a link to apply for NYS financial aid, such as the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP). Otherwise, submit the NYS Student Aid Application online at the Higher Education Service Corporation (HESC) website.

Step 3: Financial Verification 

Be on the lookout for communications from SUNY Delhi regarding the next steps to complete the financial verification process in February 2023.  You may receive communications by mail and email.
