Students who request consideration for SUNY’s Arthur O. Eve Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) on their application for admission must complete an EOP Financial Eligibility Review screening to determine whether they meet the financial eligibility requirements. You will be directed to the EOP Financial Eligibility Review portal after indicating your interest in consideration for EOP and having completed the application for admission, whether using the SUNY application, the Common application or applying to a SUNY campus that uses their own campus application for admission.

The table below lists financial eligibility requirements for EOP admission for students entering the 2024-25 academic year. Any subsequent changes to these guidelines will be posted here. In order to be determined economically disadvantaged, a student’s household income must not exceed the amount shown for its size or the student’s circumstances must conform to one of the exceptions indicated.

* For families/households with more than 8 persons, add $9,509 for each additional person.
