The admissions evaluation process begins when you submit your Daemen University application or CommonApp.
This is when your Daemen University admissions counselor will begin evaluating your eligibility for HEOP. If you meet the preliminary academic requirements, you will be asked to complete the online HEOP Supplemental Data Form which collects information about your household size and types of income earned throughout the year. You will also be asked, based on the information provided on the Data Form, to submit financial and other documents required to finish your eligibility evaluation.
If you have any questions regarding your application, please contact the Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program at (716) 839-8249.
You MUST submit documentation of ALL household income for 2021. Household income includes the earnings for everyone that resides in the home.
Acceptable forms for proof of income include:
- SIGNED copy of Federal IRS Form 1040 (first 2 pages ONLY)
- W-2 Form - Wage and Tax Statement
- 4506T Request for Transcript of Tax Return
- Supplemental Security Income Documentation
