A unique aspect of EOP is the First Year Structured Program (FYSP). It is a highly structured academic experience, designed to assist and maximize a freshman student's opportunity to be successful.
All students are placed in first-year courses based upon their high school academic preparation and placement tests administered by EOP. During the first year, EOP professionals serve as counselors, academic advisors and instructors to their students.
Courses and faculty members have been carefully chosen to become a part of the EOP first-year academic experience. Academic support is provided to every freshman student through required supplemental instruction and tutoring for every course. EOP conducts orientation before the start of every year.
You’ll always have support in EOP. The program provides numerous services to help students make the transition from high school to college life. Assistance is provided in the form of academic advisement, college adjustment, financial aid, personal/interpersonal counseling, career assistance and tutoring. Program assistance enables students to make the right decisions so their educational and individual career goals can be met.
All students are strongly encouraged to contact the EOP office if they have any questions about services that are available to them. All services are available to every student throughout their academic career at The College at Brockport. An EOP staff member is assigned to work with each student throughout their enrollment at The College at Brockport.
The EOP Pre-freshman Summer Program (PFSP) is designed to give students a head start on college preparation and adjustment. Evidence shows that students who attend summer programs are more successful in college. The PFSP includes courses in writing, mathematics, computer skills, library skills and self-exploration. These courses are designed to strengthen and develop each student's academic skills and help them make a successful transition from high school to college. The PFSP is also designed to provide students with opportunities to complete computer skills and foreign language tests required of all entering freshmen. It is a time to become familiar with the College campus and the surrounding community, and participate in social and developmental programs.
