Pre-Collegiate and Access Services

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 transfer students.

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.
