A student's academic profile, including high school grades, college board scores and academic history should indicate that he/she would not be admissible under St. Bonaventure University's regular admissions standards, but demonstrate the student's potential for success at the university level.
A student must meet the Financial Guidelines established by the New York State Education Department, with appropriate support documentation.
Economic guidelines can be reviewed by clicking Financial Guideline Sheet for HEOP.
The economic guidelines mandated by the State Education Department of New York are set up according to the number of people in the household. Adjustments are made for families with two workers, one-parent families, and families with unusual and extenuating circumstances. Students must be New York state residents and meet other eligibility guidelines. Please contact the HEOP office at 1-800-462-5050 or HEOP@sbu.edu for further information.
Students and families must be able to provide extensive documentation of their income including, but not limited to, copies of: Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA); parents’ and student's 1040, 1040A, or 1040EZ, and W-2 forms; Social Services Documentation; Social Security form 1099; and verification of child support. All must be signed by appropriate persons and include the total amount of income received in the prior-prior year.

The print and online editions of the autumn 2013 Notre Dame Magazine include regional writing by Mark Phillips, HEOP tutor.
His “Souls of Hills and Hollows” is a short reflection on roadside crosses in the town of Ischua; “Souls of 16th Street,” on hate groups in Allegany and Niagara counties; and “Souls of Merton’s Heart,” on the ursine heart.
