Welcome to The Educational Opportunity Program!

"The summer that will change your life forever!"

What is the CCSU EOP Program?

EOP offers a wide range of opportunities for high school seniors who desire to attend CCSU.

This is a 5 week summer program designed for students who have the potential and desire 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.

All expenses are paid including books, tuition, room, and board.

Graduates of the summer program are admitted to CCSU as full-time matriculated students.
