Comprehensive Studies Program and Educational Opportunity Program

The Comprehensive Studies Program (CSP) and Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) are alternate admission program for students who may have academic challenges due to environmental, socioeconomic and disruption issues. Students in these programs receive:

  • diagnostic and placement services for basic skill courses in English, math and reading;
  • study skills course work;
  • tutoring;
  • counseling; and
  • educational grant funding.

Students interested in these programs must be Pennsylvania residents who demonstrate academic and financial need. In addition to the online application for admission, students must fill out the CSP application if they are interested in attending University Park and the EOP application if they are interested in attending a Commonwealth campus.

Application fee waivers are available through a high school counselor. Applications are considered if space is available. If you have questions, contact the campus the student is interested in attending.
