Welcome to the Educational Opportunity Program at Schenectady Community College. The services available through SCCC’s Educational Opportunity Program are designed to help first-time, under-prepared students to be successful both in college and beyond. This webpage is provided so that participants in the Educational Opportunity Program can access important information on support services and special programs. Information such as program announcements and EOP workshops and meetings will be posted periodically. Interested students also can access EOP eligibility information or requirements as needed. For other questions or information, please contact the Program Coordinator directly.
If you are not an EOP participant but are interested in applying, please go to: http://www.sunysccc.edu/adm-fin/admeop.htm for more information and program requirements.
SCCC's Educational Opportunity Program, (EOP), is a program of academic support and financial assistance for disadvantaged New York State students who show promise for mastering college level work, given assistance. Determination of eligibility is made when a student is accepted to college as a freshman. A student must initially be enrolled on a full-time basis to qualify.
Transfer students may be considered for admission if they were enrolled in a College Discovery, EOP, HEOP (Higher Educational Opportunity Program), SEEK (Search for Education, Elevation and Knowledge) or a similar academic and financial support program at a previous college. If you are looking to transfer and EOP or a similar program did not exist at your former college, you should notify the transfer college, as well as SCCC's Coordinator of EOP.
Students accepted into the Educational Opportunity Program receive special tutoring and academic assistance to aid in their success at SCCC. Special advisement, educational programs, and counseling (career, transfer and personal) are all services provided to EOP participants. Please see below for a complete list of program services available to eligible EOP participants.
