Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP)

The mission of the New York State Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) is to recruit, enroll, and graduate New York State students who qualify according to the guidelines of the State Education Department and the Rochester Institute of Technology. Through HEOP's high impact services and holistic approach, students benefit from a summer preparatory program, broad-based tutoring, comprehensive counseling services, and a case management approach. HEOP serves as an advocate and a resource for the needs of the diverse population of students which it serves.

HEOP is sponsored jointly through a grant from NY State Education Department and RIT. HEOP is committed to the recruitment and academic success of students who would otherwise be excluded from higher education due to academic and economic disadvantage. HEOP provides academic support, financial assistance, and advocacy for eligible students.
