Each HEOP student will have an assigned Financial Aid counselor with whom they meet during the summer program. Eligible students who participate in the HEOP program generally receive the following financial aid:
- RIT Grant
- New York State Tuition Assistance Program Grant
- New York State HEOP Grant
- Federal Pell Grant
- Federal Direct Loan
- Federal Work Study
Please note that students and/or their families will be responsible for contributing to the student’s college expenses.
In order to continue to be eligible for financial aid, students must be in compliance with the Federal and State Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements.
Additionally, HEOP believes all students should develop financial literacy. HEOP counselors can assist students in budgeting their college expenses and making good financial choices. Questions regarding a student’s specific financial aid package, as well as financial eligibility questions, should be directed to the Office of Financial Aid.
