Welcome to the Long Island Educational Opportunity Center!

You are entering “A Career Pathway Zone” that is focused on transforming student achievements and expectations through multiple diverse pathways. The faculty and staff at the Long Island Educational Opportunity Center (LIEOC) continue to create and facilitate a wide range of options that engage each student in academic and workforce development in order to sustain the vitality of Long Island. 


The LIEOC collaborates with higher education, business, industry, government, and its communities, to create a skilled workforce that remains competitive and vibrant in a global economy.  We offer a variety of programs at our three locations, that can include the following: Allied Health EducationBusiness Careers and Technology, Adult Basic Education, College Preparation, High School Equivalency (HSE), English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), and creative design opportunities through our Entrepreneur Technology Center’s Visual Technology Program.  In addition, we offer over 32 occupational, academic, and self-development courses at our ATTAIN labs located at Brentwood and Hempstead.


As we begin this academic year, we always look forward to our Recognition Ceremony in May, where we honor our students who have achieved their goals through multiple diverse pathways at the Long Island Educational Opportunity Center at Farmingdale State College.


Good luck for a successful academic year.
