HEOP: Higher Education Opportunity Program

AU Staff Updated by AU Staff

This program is designed for NYS students who come from households with modest incomes. These students have potential for success at Alliance University, but their high school performance and/or test scores understate their potential.

Initiated in the Spring of 1975, the Higher Education Opportunity Program at AU is administered by the Division of Student Success. The program has established a record of success at the institution and is regarded as an integral part of the college.

Through the years, HEOP students have held many campus leadership positions. They have served as student government officers, class presidents, club presidents, resident assistants, and baccalaureate speakers. They have been named to the Dean’s List, have received awards and scholarships for academic achievement, have earned faculty citations for community service, have been inducted into honor societies, and have graduated with honors. Every year HEOP students travel to such countries as England, Israel, Korea, Japan, Kenya, and the Philippines.
