Specialty Programs

Each year the admissions staff review all types of applications for our specialty programs and articulation agreements for entering students. The following information should assist students in completing their applications.

Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP)Designed by the New York State Education Department, HEOP admits and counsels students who are classified as economically and educationally disadvantaged and who would benefit from additional assistance. HEOP students are required to attend a five-week summer session to strengthen their basic skills.

Doctor of Dental Surgery Program
The Doctor of Dental Surgery degree (DDS) and bachelor's of science degree in biology (BS) program (DDS/BS) between SUNY Buffalo and St. Lawrence University allows students to complete the degree program in seven years. The program accepts students from high school and requires specific application requirements. 

Rural Medicine Program
The articulation agreement between St. Lawrence University (SLU) and SUNY Upstate Medical University (College of Medicine) is an early assurance program for students interested in rural medicine. The agreement allows for students accepted into the program to have a place at Upstate Medical University waiting for them after they complete four years at SLU.
