UHS FAFSA Saturday
SUNY Old Westbury STEP Program
Since 1996 the Science and Technology Entry Program (STEP) at the State University College at Old Westbury has sought to promote the social, cognitive and character development of middle and high school students (grades 7-12) with the goal of leading them to pursue a college degree/career in a STEP targeted field. The program specifically recruits students who are underrepresented minorities (URM) and/or those who are economically disadvantaged to develop their aptitude and interest in STEP-targeted fields.
