BUSINESS EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY PROGRAM (BEOP)
What is BEOP?
The Business Educational Opportunity Program (BEOP) is a collaborative program between the Foster School and the UW Office of Minority Affairs, Educational Opportunity Program Counseling Center. Services are geared towards providing assistance with admission, scholarships, academic advising and tutoring services. BEOP works with pre-business students to ensure a smooth transition to the Foster School.
Who can participate in BEOP activities?
All students affiliated with the UW Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) who have an interest in business are considered “BEOP Students.” If you would like more information about affiliating with this program, please contact the EOP Counseling and Advising Office.
Accounting 199 is a supplemental 2-credit course providing in-depth instruction and explanation about topics covered in Accounting 215. Students enrolled in Accounting 199 have a noticeably higher final Accounting 215 grade, as well as an increased understanding of accounting. Students take the course concurrently with Accounting 215. If you are interested in taking this course please speak with a Foster School adviser in 202 Dempsey Hall.
The BEOP funds business tutors in the Office of Minority Affairs & Diversity Instructional Center (IC). The IC provides year round tutorial services in business core subjects, including calculus, economics, statistics and accounting. A wide variety of tutors are available to meet with students on a drop in basis. For more information about the Instructional Center and its tutorial services please visit the link above.
Writing Skills Assessment Workshop
During winter quarter the Instructional Center (IC) offers a 6-week tutorial program that prepares students to take the Writing Skills Assessment (WSA). As part of the admission requirements, all students are required to take the writing assessment, which is 35% of the admissions decision. Students who are interested in signing up for this workshop should stop by the Writing Center and speak with George Bauer.
These sessions are collaboratively planned between counselors in the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) Counseling Center and the Foster School. The primary objective is to help inform EOP students of the stages of preparation for applying to the Foster School. The workshops are designed to give students the information needed to complete a competitive application.
Dates for the 2014-15 academic year will be posted when they become available.
