New York State Education Department (NYSED)
Contracts for services to New York nonprofit and for-profit IHEs to enable disadvantaged students to achieve higher levels of educational success. Funding is intended to provide educationally and economically disadvantaged students with comprehensive support services and financial assistance in order to successfully graduate from a higher education program.
The primary objective of the Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) is to provide a broad range of services to New York State residents who, because of educational and economic circumstances, would otherwise be unable to attend a postsecondary educational institution. Each HEOP institution must ensure that HEOP students are provided with sufficient academic support services, tuition assistance, supplemental financial assistance, and full need packaging to enable them to successfully complete the institutional components required for graduation.
This program, as amended, is designed to support the screening, testing, counseling, tutoring, teaching, and partial financial assistance of New York State residents who:
1. Are graduates of an approved high school or have obtained a high school equivalency diploma or its equivalent;
2. Have potential for the successful completion of a higher education program; and
3. Are economically and educationally disadvantaged.
1. Provide access to postsecondary education to eligible students.
2. Identify, evaluate, and recruit eligible students and enable them to complete a higher education experience.
3. Improve the retention and graduation rates of disadvantaged students.
