SEEK Program (Search for Education, Elevation and Knowledge)

About the SEEK Program (Search for Education, Elevation and Knowledge)

SEEK is a higher education opportunity program at the senior (four-year) CUNY colleges.  It was established to provide comprehensive academic support to assist capable students who otherwise might not be able to attend college due to their educational and financial circumstances. The Hunter College SEEK Program is located administratively under the Office of the Provost.  Through collaborative efforts and shared resources, SEEK participants receive comprehensive support and guidance from orientation to graduation.  They acclimate to the campus’ culture of engagement; learn how to navigate the College; increase their self and cultural awareness; utilize available campus resources and support services; and develop the study, problem-solving and critical thinking skills necessary to persist through college to graduation and beyond.  The SEEK Program services include: five-week summer program (for incoming freshmen), Orientation for Success course, counseling (academic, career, personal and financial), tutoring (individual and group), educational workshops, need-based financial aid, peer mentoring program, and Chi Alpha Epsilon Honor Society (for eligible participants).
