SUNY Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) (email eop@fmcc.edu )

The Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) provides necessary support systems for students to achieve academic and social (interpersonal) success.  Students are considered for entry to EOP by indicating interest in the program via their application for admission and must be in their first year of college. Students also must meet the financial and academic parameters for program entry.

Funded by the State University of New York (SUNY), EOP students across the state have achieved higher graduation rates than their non-EOP cohorts through the support, guidance and academic expectations set forth by the program.  The goal of EOP is to increase the number of economically and academically challenged students completing college degrees.

EOP provides a framework for student success that includes: one-to-one case management of participants, time management skills, adjusting to college level academic expectations, transitioning to college life, maintaining appropriate study habits, tutoring in math, sciences and writing and meeting with the academic counselor to ensure adequate supports. The program also provides limited financial assistance and textbook funding.

EOP will also assist students in advancement of their academic goals beyond FM. Through our network of relationships with other EOP Directors across the state, the EOP office can make contact with other programs to find the best fit for advanced academic pursuits. Once accepted into the program, students are forever “Proud to be EOP.”
