Opportunity Programs


NYU Tandon School of Engineering offers two special college programs for residents of New York State.

The Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) is a New York State funded program designed to provide broad and varied educational instruction to capable students who, due to limited academic and financial resources, might otherwise not have the opportunity to attend the School of Engineering.

The Collegiate Science and Technology Program (CSTEP) is a New York State funded program that provides minority or disadvantaged students access to academic programs that prepare them for licensure or employment in scientific, technical or health-related professions.

Once admitted, HEOP/CSTEP students are provided with these and other support services throughout their college careers:

  • financial assistance (CSTEP- Scholarship aid is limited)
  • counseling
  • tutoring
  • advisement
  • academic support courses
