Opportunity Programs

The Opportunity Programs staff provides academic counseling and personal support to more than 170 Hamilton students each year.

The Hamilton College Opportunity Programs is comprised of two (2) academic programs: the Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program and the Hamilton College Scholars Program designed to increase access to higher education for the student whose academic profile may differ from the Hamilton profile, and who demonstrates the ability to compete successfully in Hamilton's academically competitive environment with support.
