EOP Income Guidelines

EOP applicants should meet the low income guidelines listed below. Applicants whose total family income exceeds the guidelines may be considered if the expected family contribution (as determined by the Financial Aid Office) does not exceed $1,500. These guidelines are not intended to exclude economically disadvantaged students, but to identify and give priority to the most financially needy applicants.
