Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program
The Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) was created in 1969 by the New York State Legislature to help academically and economically disadvantaged New York residents gain access to the state's private colleges and universities.
For more than 40 years, HEOP has provided educationally and financially deserving students with academic, financial, personal and career counseling support in order to guide students toward educational success.
HEOP and its activities are supported by the New York State Education Department and St. John Fisher College.

"Here at St. John Fisher College, HEOP has given me the opportunity to do great things in my life and pursue all my dreams. The family culture and principles displayed by the staff and students has made me feel welcomed. I would not change anything; I love St. John Fisher College and my HEOP family!"
