How To Apply

All applicants should complete the MCC Application on-line and check the appropriate box to indicate your interest in EOP.  This will begin the process for program consideration.  Academic eligibility is determined by the campus and is based on the applicant's high school records, standardized test scores (SAT, ACT) and the college's placement test scores.  First-time college students must meet both academic and income guidelines. Priority is given to applicants from historically disadvantaged backgrounds.

Applicants who meet the academically eligibility and have been accepted to the college will receive information regarding instructions on how to access the EOP Supplemental Application and program requirements to further determine eligiblity. Interviews (in-person or by phone) are required. The interview gives you an opportunity to learn more about EOP and have all of your questions answered.

Students accepted to Monroe Community College are not automatically accepted to EOP.  In addition, all applicants to EOP receive a letter of acceptance or denial upon review of all required documents.

All applicants are required to complete the EOP Supplemental Application for Admission Form, submit proof of income for the previous calendar year, and complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at and the New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) Form at
