The HEOP program was created in 1969 by the New York State Legislature and is a partnership between the State of New York and Hilbert College. Through the financial support for tuition and fees, housing and an unlimited meal plan as well as books and supplies, HEOP students strengthen their skill sets and achieve lifelong success at Hilbert College.
