The Arthur O. Eve Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) was established in 1967 to fulfill New York State’s commitment to access to higher education. The program is for students of all racial and ethnic backgrounds who have the talent and ability to succeed in college but have been placed at a disadvantage for access by financial and academic circumstances. 

Applicants must be New York State residents with a high school diploma or its equivalent. They must show academic promise but not qualify for admission under general admission standards. Candidates must have a family income equal to or less than published standards. Refer to the Buffalo State EOP website for income guidelines and application instructions.
