Financial Aid

We encourage our EOP students are encouraged to use all financial resources to their advantage.

Some of the students in the Educational Opportunities Program come from households with limited financial resources. Our EOP program provides students with funding on a case-by-case basis.

The University at Albany's Office of Financial Aid has proven to be a good resource for our students. Scholarship opportunities are available from both UAlbany and external sources as well.

There are two basic steps in which students MUST complete in order to be part of the Educational Opportunities Program:

  1. Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). File the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This form is available from your high school guidance office or online at and should be filed as soon as possible. For faster response we encourage you to file the FAFSA online. Please be sure to include the University at Albany’s code (002835).
  2. New York State Tuition Assistance Application (TAP). Mail this form to New York State Higher Education Services Corporation, 99 Washington Avenue, Albany, NY 12255. The University at Albany TAP Code is 0895.
