The Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) recruits and admits talented and motivated students from New York State who otherwise, owing to academic and financial circumstances, would be unable to attend Skidmore College.
The Academic Opportunity Program (AOP) recruits and admits students who are HEOP-like in their academic and economic profiles, yet are not eligible for support from the program because they reside in states other than New York, are international, or have income levels slightly above the HEOP economic eligibility guidelines.
Holistic in the approach to student development, both programs provide academic, financial, and counseling services, beginning with a required, prefreshman, on-campus summer program. The Summer Academic Institute strengthens students’ academic and study skills and prepares them for an academically and personally successful college experience.
