All candidates that want to be considered for the HEOP/Scholar program must go through the general admission process. At Hamilton, admission decisions are made without considering an applicant's ability to pay. Additionally, Hamilton meets the full demonstrated need of every student it admits.
The Hamilton College Opportunity Programs, HEOP and College Scholars, are designed to support students who present an alternate academic profile and who demonstrate the ability to compete successfully in an academically competitive environment.
The five-week summer program introduces students to Hamilton’s academic rigor and assists students in building a personalized foundation for success.
Our staff provides academic counseling and personal support to students by helping with curricular choices, bringing academic opportunities to their attention and aiding in their transition to college life.
