Through the NYU Opportunity Programs, two college programs are available to residents of New York State. The Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) is funded by the New York State Education Department to provide a broad array of academic and financial aid support to capable students who, due to limited educational and economic resources, might otherwise not have the opportunity to attend NYU. Once admitted to NYU through HEOP, students are eligible to receive a full-need financial aid package along with academic support in the form of counseling, tutoring, advisement, and other assistance throughout their undergraduate studies.
The Collegiate Science and Technology Program (CSTEP) is also funded by New York State to provide underrepresented or disadvantaged students access to academic programs that prepare them for careers in science, engineering, or health-related professions. Once admitted to NYU through CSTEP, students receive academic assistance including counseling, tutoring, advisement, and other support services throughout their undergraduate studies.
HEOP and CSTEP’s goal at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering are to retain and graduate students who are traditionally underrepresented in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields.
