Click on "EOP/AIM Accept/Decline" and accept our offer by the date indicated on your letter of admission. If we do not receive your response by this date, you will lose your space in our class. EOP/AIM students are not required to pay tuition and housing deposits, or the Orientation fee.

Use our online form in SOLAR to tell us your preferences for Freshman Undergraduate Colleges (Living Learning Centers for Transfers), Orientation, campus housing, meal plans, and more.

All new EOP/AIM students are guaranteed housing. To offer as many students as possible the experience of our residential learning environment, strategies that include assigning three students to a double room and other options will be utilized.

FRESHMEN: ATTEND EOP/AIM PRE-FRESHMAN SUMMER PROGRAM
In the summer, before other freshmen arrive at Stony Brook, you will have the opportunity to get a head start by becoming familiar with the campus, and the chance to sharpen your intellectual and academic skills by experiencing the rigors of college-level courses.
PAY HEALTH INSURANCE OR APPLY FOR A WAIVER
Stony Brook requires all full time students to have comprehensive health insurance, and provides a plan for purchase by those who do not currently have such a plan. If you already have health insurance, you must apply for a health insurance waiver or you will be automatically billed for SB's plan. Once you register for classes, a fee for health insurance will be posted on your account. Log on to SOLAR and look for insurance waivers under “Student Financial Services” on the menu bar.
EXPERIENCE STONY BROOK
Just a few days before the start of classes you will participate in Experience Stony Brook (part 2 of Orientation), where you will discover the vast resources and opportunities available to you as an SB student. You’ll attend various programs and workshops focused on your academic success, campus involvement, and health and wellness.
