The New Opportunities at Hofstra Program (NOAH) has provided highly motivated and diverse students with access to higher education at one of the country’s finest postsecondary institutions for nearly half a century. Initiated in 1964, NOAH Program served as the model for the Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP), an initiative supported by the New York State Education Department that provides academic, financial and social support resources for students from lower-socioeconomic backgrounds attending independent colleges and universities in the state. HEOP has transformed the lives of thousands of individuals since 1969.
As an accepted Hofstra University and NOAH/HEOP Scholar, you will be required to complete a five-week introductory academic program during the summer prior to your freshman year. Your summer course schedule is determined by your individual academic needs, and will expose you to first-year courses and activities, ensuring a smooth entry into university life.
