What is the Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP)?

HEOP_Ting_Ting_Mei

New York Institute of Technology’s Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) is a comprehensive program, jointly sponsored with the state of New York, to assist in providing access for all New Yorkers to the state’s private colleges and universities. The Arthur O. Eve HEOP was established in 1969 by the New York State Legislature (Section 6451 and 6452 of the Education Law). The Higher Education Opportunity Program has been in existence at New York Institute of Technology since 1970.

Arthur O. Eve HEOP helps assist students who, because of financial and academic hardships, would otherwise be unable to earn a college degree. An important part of NYIT's mission is to provide educational opportunity to all qualified students, and Arthur O. Eve HEOP helps to make that possible.

Depending on your needs and circumstances, the program can offer you financial assistance for tuition, books, transportation, and some personal expenses. In addition, you will receive academic and personal counseling, study skills training, tutoring, and career counseling from NYIT student services professionals.

NYIT does not discriminate in admissions or access to its programs and activities on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, creed, disability, age, marital status, gender, sexual orientation, or veteran status.

HEOP and its activities are supported in part by the New York State Education Department.

Meeting Missionaries

On Thursday, April 2nd Arthur O Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) students Aiden Mohammad and Bryan Diaz who is also a member of Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity Incorporated (TKE), joined HEOP counselor Vanderie Vielie on a trip to the local soup kitchen at St. Paul the Apostle.   This was Aiden’s second trip to the soup kitchen. The students of HEOP and Chi Alpha Epsilon (XAE) have been offering their support to the soup kitchen once a semester for the past four years.  On this trip they met a group of over a dozen young adults from North Carolina who were visiting New York on a missionary trip. St. Paul the Apostle was one of several soup kitchens they had volunteered at during their short stay in the city.  After some socializing with the visitors, everyone got to work helping to set up the soup kitchen and organize the soup kitchen pantry. We look forward to our next visit in the Fall semester!

HEOP Homework Helpers

On Wednesday, March 11th members of Chi Alpha Epsilon National Honor Society (XAE), the Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) and Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity Incorporated (TKE) volunteered their time with the Page Turners Homework Helpers.  The primary goal of Page Turners is to provide homeworkassistance to grade school children in the Hell's Kitchen community. Upon arriving at the Metro Baptist Church, NYIT students and staff member Vanderie Vielie met other volunteers from the Page Turners program and received a brief but thorough orientation. Shortly after the students came bouncing in to complete homework in a variety of subjects. HEOP student Kayla Kellman helped her tutee with a project focused on South Africa’s current president and main export of goods. HEOP student and TKE member Bryan Diaz had a great connection with his tutee who he said reminded him of himself at that age. After the homework was finished, HEOP student and XAE member Dorrant Anderson engaged in a lively game of chess with several eager students.

Pre-Freshmen Summer Program

Recently the Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Program (HEOP) introduced a service component into the pre-freshman summer program. While the summer program itself is designed to prepare the freshmen for college level work, the service component hopes to prepare them for a long term commitment to community service and giving back.

The students burned some calories, got some sun, and even ended up on News Channel 12!
