You are eligible for EOP as a transfer student provided you have been enrolled in EOP, College Discovery, HEOP (Higher Education Opportunity Program), SEEK (Search for Education, Elevation and Knowledge) or a similar academic and financial support program at your previous college. If your previous college did not have EOP or a similar program, you may be considered for transfer eligibility and should notify the college to which you are transferring of your interest. EOP transfer students must submit an EOP Verification form which the student will fill out and then give to their current school officials to sign off on. We can not move forward on your acceptance without this information. Below is the downloadable version of our EOP Transfer Verification Form for your convenience.
“As a first generation student, EOP made me feel at home, and part of a college family. Being a member of EOP at SUNY Broome has helped me mature into a great student and person. I gained life-long friends, mentors, and a support system at SUNY Broome’s EOP program.
“I can honestly say EOP provided the building blocks for my successful college journey and I’m grateful to be part of the family. Since graduating from SUNY Broome in 2017, with the financial support and encouragement of EOP, I’ve been able to academically excel by studying abroad in Italy and Los Angeles as a senior at Ithaca College.
“I am currently on track to obtain my Bachelor’s degree in Communications (Television-Radio) in May 2019. I would not have made it this far if it wasn’t for the EOP program and the help of Venessa Rodriguez and other EOP staff. EOP gave me the confidence to see I belonged and can be successful despite any circumstances and obstacles.”
– Elijah Joseph, SUNY Broome Alumnus, Class of 2017, Senior at Ithaca College
