Science and Technology Entry Program (STEP)

The Science and Technology Entry Program (STEP) is a NYS grant-funded program designed "to increase the number of historically underrepresented and economically disadvantaged students prepared to enter college, and improve their participation rate in mathematics, science, technology, health-related fields, and the licensed professions," as described by the NYS Education Department.

Union College STEP has been in operation since 1994, providing eligible students with high quality STEM instruction, support, and enrichment. All STEP services are provided at no cost.
