Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program


Summer Bridge 2022, exclusively for incoming first-year students, is taking place from July 18th through July30th! See Summer Bridge for more information.​


The Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program is a New York State Department of Education Program that provides academic support services and enrichment activities to undergraduate students interested in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, health related fields or careers in licensed professions. Students in CSTEP are highly prepared to enter the workforce and/or pursue higher studies and research in the STEM fields.

CSTEP accomplishes its objectives by offering instructional programs, facilitating participation in scholarly activities, conducting conferences and workshops, providing support for guided research and industry sponsored internships, and conducting programs aimed at developing skills and competencies for ethical and professional practice in the student’s chosen field. While CSTEP brings together faculty and students from a broad spectrum of academic programs on campus to undertake projects of mutual interest, the program also promotes and initiates collaborative activities with science and technology programs at other institutions in the region.

Who Are We Looking For?

We seek historically underrepresented and economically disadvantaged students who are interested in STEM, heath, or licensed professions, and are looking to actively participate in a comprehensive program experience.  Please see our eligibility page for more information.
