Pre-Collegiate and Access
The office of Pre-Collegiate and Access Services coordinates
the Educational Opportunity Program and the Connecticut Collegiate Awareness
and Preparation Program (ConnCAP) at Central Connecticut State University.
The Educational Opportunity Program
(EOP) is a five-week summer program designed for students who have the
potential to do college-level work but do not meet CCSU's regular admissions
standards. EOP students live on campus in CCSU residence halls during the summer
with all expenses paid, including books, tuition, room, and board.
Graduates of the summer program are
admitted to CCSU as full-time students in the fall. EOP students participate in
ongoing orientation and tutoring programs throughout their first year and
receive support services all through their college experience. EOP alumni
actively support CCSU and EOP through their contributions to student
scholarship funds and mentoring activities with EOP undergraduates.
This program is limited to 50
Connecticut residents who have graduated or will be graduating from an
accredited Connecticut high school or have attained their General Equivalency
Diploma. Students must demonstrate a financial need. EOP is not open to
CCSU's Connecticut Collegiate
Awareness and Preparation Program (ConnCAP) is a college preparation program, serving 125 low
income, first-generation college-bound middle and high school students from New
Britain. The goal of the program is to increase the number of students who
complete high school and successfully enroll in post-secondary education.
Working cooperatively with the middle and high schools in New Britain, the
program provides a wide range of activities and services to strengthen academic
skills, self-esteem, motivation, and a love of learning. Services and
activities take place year round in the middle and high schools and on CCSU's
campus in the summer.
