The Educational Opportunity Program is a scholarship program for New Jersey residents eligible for need based aid. We invest in our scholar's overall development by offering private tutoring, counseling, advising, and financial aid support. With the services that we provide, we still need one more piece to complete the EOP experience, you! We encourage you to apply to be a part of the EOP family and take advantage of all the resources we offer. At EOP, our primary goal is to provide a transformative experience that gives you all the tools necessary to be successful at Seton Hall and help you achieve your goal of getting a university degree.
