Educational Opportunity Program/Act 101
The Educational Opportunity Program helps students whose educational and economic backgrounds have not quite prepared them for the college experience. During the summer before the freshman year, these students are instructed in writing, learning strategies, reading, and other communication skills for college credits. If the summer program is successfully completed, students are enrolled for the regular academic year. Faculty and staff provide ongoing professional and peer counseling, study skills instruction, and tutoring for these students as needed.
The Lock Haven University Foundation Scholarship Program is held during the spring semester providing recognition and financial assistance to students who are selected using a range of criteria.
Tutorial Services are available by peers in small groups for select lower-level courses in the Tutorial Center. All tutors are academically qualified and trained.
We are committed to giving everyone an opportunity to receive a quality education, and we know LHU is an excellent choice. We will be happy to answer your questions and guide you through the financial aid application process.
