Through the Office of State Grants at Ithaca College, the mission of HEOP is to provide a comprehensive menu of support services to pre-freshmen, opportunity program transfer students, and continuing IC students who, because of both academic and economic circumstances, would otherwise be unable to attend Ithaca College. Support services continue until graduation.

HEOP and its activities are supported, in whole or in part, by the New York State Education Department. For more info about HEOP, please refer to the New York State Education Department.
