Adult Educational Opportunity Center (AEOC)

The Adult Educational Opportunity Center (AEOC) is a free program that provides counseling and information on college admissions to qualified adults who want to enter or continue a program of postsecondary education. The program also provides services to improve the financial and economic literacy of participants. An important objective of the program is to counsel participants on financial aid options, including basic financial planning skills, and to assist in the application process. The goal of the AEOC program is to increase the number of adult participants who enroll in postsecondary education institutions, to provide support for students to achieve their dreams and goals.

In order to make it as easy as possible for individuals to meet with one of our Outreach Specialists, we have many AEOC Locations throughout our six-county area (Allegany, Cattaraugus, Genesee, Livingston, Orleans and Wyoming).

All AEOC Services are free. Call our toll free number for an appointment: 1-888-394-2362 or email AEOC@genesee.edu for more information. We are looking forward to working with you.
