New York State Arthur O. Eve HEOP

Program Overview

The Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program (Arthur O. Eve HEOP) at New York University is sponsored jointly through a grant from the New York State Education Department and New York University.

Since 1969, we have been integral to NYU’s commitment to a diverse student body. Our program provides a means for traditionally under­served, low-income students to obtain admission as well as academic and financial support. As an accepted NYU and Arthur O. Eve HEOP student, you will be required to complete a six-week introductory non-credit academic program during the summer prior to your freshman year.

Your summer course schedule is determined by your individual academic needs, and will expose you to first-year courses and activities, ensuring a smooth entry into university life. More on our Pre-Freshman Program requirements. As one of our students, you will have access to our support system, which includes:

  • Academic and personal counseling
  • Financial counseling
  • Mentoring
  • Academic workshops and seminars
  • Tutoring
