We strongly believe the only way to know if a school is right for you is to visit the campus. When you visit the Buffalo EOC campus, an admissions representative will meet with you to address your individual questions and needs. We will review program requirements, enrollment procedures, class scheduling and other topics.

You want to continue your education, but you cannot afford to, and you do not know where to start. Buffalo EOC offers tuition-free classes so you can start your future without incurring the costs of college.
SUNY Educational Outreach assists both Buffalo EOC and non- Buffalo EOC college-bound students. The staff provides information and assistance with college admission procedures, financial aid programs, college survival skills and college preparedness.
Each student is required to participate in a computer-adaptive employment skills software applications program (ATTAIN lab). Included in this program are appropriate attitude, timeliness, communication, responsibility, appearance, personal planning for emergencies, budgeting, stress management and teamwork. Individual programs may include program-specific computer enhancements to individual curriculum.
Each student has an assigned Program Counselor, whose job it is to ensure student success both personally and professionally. Program Counselors provide academic advisement as well as assist in referrals and managing day-to-day problems.
At the Buffalo EOC you are not just a number. We care about our students and give our attention to your personal goals. Our instructors have real-world experience. We do not just hire any instructor. We recruit qualified professionals with industry-specific expertise. So, you get the benefit of real-world knowledge and gain the practical insights that cannot be learned from a textbook.
The Career Services Office assists in the employment search. In addition to offering workshops on resumé writing, interview skills, and job search techniques, the staff performs a skills assessment to match you with suitable job openings. Career Services personnel, along with others at the Center, develop relationships with local businesses to help connect Buffalo EOC graduates with employment opportunities.
Upon successful completion of a program, graduates receive a certificate endorsed by the Buffalo Educational Opportunity Center and its sponsor, The University at Buffalo.
