Eligibility, application and requirements

Freshman application process for fall 2014

In order to be admitted to Binghamton through the Educational Opportunity Program, you must meet both academic AND economic criteria.

To start the review process, submit the SUNY Application online.

IMPORTANT: All EOP applications are reviewed in two steps. Do not complete Step 2 until requested by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

STEP 1: Submit your high school transcript and test scores (SAT or ACT) via SOAR.

After your academic record (high school transcript and test scores) are reviewed, we will make an academic determination and send you one of the following notifications:

STEP 2: Submit the REQUIRED items for economic review. (Note: Submit only after you receive a communication from the Office of Undergraduate Admissions requesting this information.)

Once all economic items are received, your application will be reviewed and additional documentation may be requested, including the forms in the right-hand column of this page. These forms should only be submitted when requested. Your application may go from complete to incomplete several times; therefore, it is important to continue to check the status of your application on the online status checker.

*Due to the nature of EOP application review, final decisions after the economic review will not be sent until March. Initial review of academics will be sent on a rolling basis.
