First-time freshmen who have applied for admission to SUNY Delhi through the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) for Fall 2024 must meet certain academic and economic eligibility requirements. Applicants being considered for our EOP Program will receive communications from Student Financial Services with their next steps via email and mail.
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 2024-2025 FAFSA using 2022 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.'
NOTE: Due to the passing of the FAFSA Simplification Act, the 2024-25 FAFSA release has been delayed until December 2023.
Step 2: Financial Verification
Complete the SUNY EOP Financial Information Form
When submitting the SUNY or Common application, interested EOP applicants should have the option to begin the online SUNY EOP Financial Information form. The form will collect household size, income, assets and more. Supporting documentation must be submitted such as 2022 taxes and all schedules, public assistance, child support received, SSI etc.
Step 3: Apply for NYS Aid
Complete and submit the 2024-2025 NYS Aid Application using 2022 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. Although this application is not required for determining EOP eligiblity, this is an important opportunity for additional financial assistance.
NOTE: This application has been delayed due to the FAFSA Simplifcation Act and is expected to open in December 2023.
