Is there a separate application for HEOP at NYIT?
No. There is a question on the NYIT Undergraduate Admission Application, or on the supplemental page that goes with the Common Application, that asks if you are interested in the Higher Education Opportunity Program. Mark “yes” as your answer to this question. It is also suggested that once your application has been submitted, you should contact the HEOP office directly at email@example.com or at 212.261.1545.
What is the deadline to submit an application to NYIT in order to be considered for HEOP?
There is no specific deadline to apply to be considered for HEOP at NYIT. Our office will review applications throughout the spring semester until our class is full. However, we recommend that students interested in being considered for the HEOP freshman class submit their applications to NYIT as early as possible. All students under consideration for HEOP must attend an interview on-campus before a final decision can be issued.
As a transfer student, if I have been accepted by NYIT, does that mean that I am also accepted into HEOP?
Acceptance into HEOP is not automatic for transfer students coming from other schools’ HEOP, EOP, and SEEK programs. If you are a transfer student interested in being accepted into HEOP at NYIT and have not been contacted yet by the HEOP office, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 212.261.1545.
Am I allowed to live in NYIT housing?
HEOP students at New York Institute of Technology are not permitted to apply for on campus housing. You should plan on commuting to campus from your current residence.
If I am an incoming freshman student that has been accepted by HEOP, is it mandatory for me to attend the Summer Program?
Yes, all incoming HEOP freshmen must attend a one day orientation and all five weeks of the Summer Program.
If I am attending college for the first time and interested in HEOP, can I apply to start at NYIT in the spring semester?
No, all incoming freshmen must attend the HEOP Summer Program before their first semester at NYIT, which would then be in the fall.
Is there a summer program for transfer students as well?
There is no summer program for incoming transfer students.
Will my classes include students who are not in HEOP?
You will attend the same classes as any other NYIT student, though you should not be surprised to find fellow HEOP students in the same classroom with you. As a freshman however, the tutoring you attend is held exclusively for and with HEOP students.
What do I need to fill out in order to be considered for financial aid before starting at NYIT?
Does my HEOP financial aid package cover tuition and fees?
Each HEOP student’s financial aid package is unique. The HEOP staff is available to discuss your financial need individually.
If you have any other questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the HEOP office to speak with one of our staff members.
