This five-week summer program of intense academics is an integral part of the EOP/AIM
program at Stony Brook. All EOP/AIM students are expected to earn a minimum cumulative
grade point average of 2.0 during the summer program. The program provides a richly
rewarding academic experience for participants. The courses of study are Mathematics,
Africana Studies, Philosophy and Writing.
Some students enter the summer program with apprehension, perhaps because they would
prefer to stay home and work. However, most students look back over the five weeks
and realize the enormous academic and social benefits they received from the summer
program experience. These benefits carry over into the academic year. Our research
shows that summer program participants tend to perform better than non-participants.

Summer Program Cost
The program is free of charge to participants, and includes housing, food, and books.
All summer program participants are assigned a counselor, who meets with them during
the summer. These meetings provide an opportunity for students and counselors to become
better acquainted and to establish working relationships. It is also an ideal time
for students to get answers to questions about financial aid, course selection, housing
and so on.
Students remain with the same counselor throughout their stay at Stony Brook, unless
personnel changes dictate otherwise. Each semester students schedule individual appointments
with their counselor during four mandatory counseling periods. These meetings provide
an opportunity for intensive academic advising and career counseling, financial aid
monitoring, and personal interaction. Most students seek out their counselor between
mandatory meetings to solve problems as they arise.
