The Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) provides supportive services and financial aid to New York state residents who meet specific academic and financial criteria, and attend independent colleges and universities in New York state.
HEOP at Manhattan College enables motivated students who lack adequate preparation and financial resources for college attendance to pursue a college degree. Generally, students who qualify to participate in the program have both grade point averages and standardized test scores that are significantly lower than our averages. Acceptance into Manhattan College’s HEOP assures a student the pursuit of the major of her choice in any of the five undergraduate schools: Business, Education and Health, Engineering, Liberal Arts and Science.
Manhattan College is big enough to offer many programs found at large universities but small enough to afford each student personal attention from faculty and administrators. HEOP’s professional staff offers one-on-one counseling just for HEOP students. In order to qualify for the program a student must be a New York state resident.
