    History
In May 1969, the New York State Legislature passed an amendment
to the Education Law. This authorized a program to expand educational
opportunities in public and Independent institutions of higher education. The
program was designed to support proposals for the screening, testing,
counseling, tutoring, teaching, and partial financial assistance of New York
State residents who:

   are graduates of an approved high school or have obtained a high school
    equivalency diploma or its equivalent,

   have potential for the successful completion of a higher education
    program, and

   are economically and educationally "disadvantaged."
Student Eligibility
   Students are both academically and economically “disadvantaged.”

   A disadvantaged student is an individual from a low-income family with
    potential for a successful collegiate experience, but who has not
    acquired the verbal, mathematical, and other cognitive skills required
    to complete his/her college work.

   Although the literature says that eligible students fall in the bottom half
    of the high school graduating class, most of our students have earned
    a Regents diploma, have a low to mid 80’s grade point average, and
    are involved in multiple curricular activities (RIT’s rigorous programs).
    Some of them have earned college credits.

   Rank low on such traditional measures of collegiate admissions as
    SAT scores, high school average, and class standing.
