Collegiate Programs

The Collegiate Programs office at Barnard College supports students admitted into the Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP), Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP) New York State Residents and the Barnard Opportunity Program (BOP) Non-New York State Residents. The Collegiate Programs office offers additional services such as academic and personal counseling, financial counseling, mentoring, academic workshops and seminars, tutoring, career development seminars and workshops, graduate school information, and internship/research placement assistance.

HEOP and CSTEP students are required to attend a five-week non-credit academic program, usually held from July to August. The goal of this summer program is to provide each scholar with the preparation to succeed academically at Barnard.

The Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship Program and the Spelman Exchange Program are other enrichment programs available to Barnard College students.   These programs are designed to complement the undergraduate experiences for students with a particular interest in diversity.

The Science Pathways Scholars Program – (SP)2 – is a program for underrepresented minority and first-generation students who convey strong interest in science research (biology, chemistry, environmental science, physics/astronomy, or neuroscience).
