Cornell University is a unique institution of higher education because both endowed and contract colleges exist concurrently. Therefore Cornell is able to offer two New York State Opportunity Programs to our students: the Arthur O. Eve Educational Opportunity Program (EOP), and the Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP). 

Both of these programs are designed to assist New York State residents who show the potential to be successful in college, but do not otherwise have the economic means and the academic background to be accepted via a standard university admissions process.

To learn more about the program, please visit the Arthur O. Eve Opportunity Programs webpage.
