    Three letters of recommendation from teachers, guidance counselors, coaches, mentors, etc.

    A personal essay of about 250 words on a topic of your choice.
  5. To apply for scholarships and federal aid, complete the online Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Make sure the Mount's school code (002778) appears on the application.
  6. Potentially qualified applicants will be asked to submit all supplemental and financial materials (income verification and copies of financial aid forms filed, e.g. FAFSA, TAP). 

If you are a transfer student previously enrolled in another Arthur O. Eve HEOP program, or in another Opportunity Program such as EOP, SEEK, or College Discovery, you are eligible for Arthur O. Eve HEOP at the Mount. If you were enrolled in an institution that did not have Opportunity Programs, we would be glad to explore your current eligibility.
