The Arthur O. Eve Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) Freshman Summer Academy is a three-week residential program. Students must stay on campus during the entire program, including weekends.
If you have been accepted to Buffalo State as an EOP student, you are required to attend the EOP Freshman Summer Academy.
The Freshman Summer Academy is an opportunity for our incoming EOP students to start their college career early. Upon successful completion of the courses, students will earn up to 4 credits while engaging with Buffalo State faculty and EOP academic mentors. These credits are intended to build a good foundation for first semester as a college student. They will also put students on track to meet the required credits for financial aid at the end of the first year. Students will be placed in a three-credit course which fulfills a general education requirement based on SAT/ACT scores. Students will also be placed in a one-credit course which has been specifically designed for our EOP students to inspire and promote creative problem solving skills for personal growth and academic success.
