Educational Opportunity Program/ACT 101

LHU's Educational Opportunity Program (EOP), partially funded by the Pennsylvania Act 101/Higher Education Equal Opportunity Program state grant, assists students whose educational and economic backgrounds impair their initial ability to successfully pursue higher education.

The faculty and staff from the Act 101 Program provides ongoing professional and peer counseling, study skills instruction and tutorial services. The Summer component provides credit-bearing instruction in writing, learning strategies, reading, and other communication skills. Participating freshmen who successfully complete the Summer requirements are enrolled for the regular academic year. Summer EOP students should meet Act 101 guidelines established by the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) which include residency requirements, income guidelines and academic criteria to be met through high school rank, high school grade point average and an average score on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or its equivalent.

Tutoring is provided at no charge and is available to all students in most basic subject areas. Students, in their first two years of study, are encouraged to arrange tutorial assistance during the early part of each semester if they anticipate or encounter difficulty with course work. Students in the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) may be required to use tutorial services to remain in the program.
