Are transfer students eligible for SEEK?

Transfer students who were enrolled in SEEK, HEOP, or EOP programs in their previous college(s) are eligible for participation in the SEEK Program at Lehman College. Students who were enrolled in the College Discovery (CD) Program and completed their associate degree are also eligible to be part of SEEK.

How do I apply as a transfer student for the SEEK Program?
