Sophomore Opportunities for Success (SOS)

Learn More. Engage More. Achieve More.


Your Virtual Passport to Success

Attend campus events during your sophomore year to learn more, engage more, and achieve more. Check in at each event to track your attendance and consider applying for one of five $1000 Sophomore Opportunities for Success Grants. Students who attend ten events throughout the 2019-20 academic year will have priority for receiving a grant, which will be applied to the 2020-21 academic year tuition bill. (It is the student's responsibility to determine whether receiving the grant would impact their financial aid package.)
