HEOP
Established by the New York State Legislature in 1969, the Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) provides an opportunity for admission and support to talented New York students who have not reached their full academic potential due to barriers in their educational, economic, or personal background. The ultimate goal of the program is to make higher education possible for students who are capable and motivated to be successful as college students but whose test scores and/or high school grades are lower than Pratt Institute’s admission standards and who come from low-income families.
