EOP Students

To qualify as an incoming freshman, you must apply and meet the academic and income guidelines. During the application process, it is important to remember that the EOP process at each college is different. Brockport may have different academic and financial requirements than other schools. These pages should help you better navigate the process at Brockport.

To qualify as a transfer EOP student, you must have been EOP/HEOP, SEEK, or College Discovery Program at your previous or current college. For applicants previously in one of these programs looking to be considered EOP at Brockport, you must check the EOP question on the SUNY or Common Application and submit the EOP Certificate of Eligibility Form.

The Application Process

EOP StudentsThe EOP application process is a very involved one and requires applicants to stay abreast of what the College is requesting at all times.

Phase 1: Academic Eligibility

Applicants to the program will be reviewed to determine if they are academically eligible. Meeting our minimum academic requirements allows you to be considered for further review. This does not, however, guarantee automatic eligibility for the program.

Eligible freshman applicants will be sent a packet of information, including an EOP Data Form. This form must be fully completed and returned to our Office. Having an incomplete form will delay the process.

Phase 2: Financial Eligibility

This phase determines the applicant's financial eligibility by taking into account the income received by each household member. Learn more about the Financial Review Process.

We have a limited number of seats for the program and review thousands of applications yearly. Therefore, it is not possible to admit every single student into the program. Students who are accepted to this program are encouraged to submit their deposit by the May 1 deadline. Once the program is filled, a waitlist will be created. To be placed on the waitlist, you will need to submit a deposit. That deposit will not be posted unless you are officially placed in the program. If we are unable to offer you a place in the program, your deposit will be refunded to you after the summer program begins.

We know that the process of applying to the program can be stressful. Please rest assured that we are here to help. Our expert EOP Admissions Advisors are here to assist you throughout the process and ensure that you submit the proper documentation. However, we will also rely on you to submit the required documents in a timely manner.

Please also note that the EOP Office will also be an active part of this process and you may be contacted by their counselors regarding documents that you may be missing. Feel free to contact them with any questions about what to expect from the program if you are accepted and decide to make Brockport your new home!

For questions regarding the Admissions process, feel free to contact Michael Brown, our EOP Coordinator in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, or call our Office at (585) 395-2751.
