The Science and Technology Entry Program (S.T.E.P.) was established at Buffalo State College in the spring of 1986. It is supported in whole or in part by a grant from the New York State Education Department.
S.T.E.P. was designed to motivate and prepare students to pursue careers in mathematics, the sciences, technologies, and the licensed professions. Participants must be in grades 7 through 12, and must be members of underrepresented minority groups and/or economically disadvantaged in accordance with S.T.E.P. guidelines.
Approximately 95 percent of participants in S.T.E.P. have attended college, and 65 percent have pursued postsecondary education in engineering, chemistry, law, medicine, biology, and computer science. Another 20 percent have gone on to pursue postsecondary education in various other disciplines.
Through S.T.E.P., students receive tutoring and study-skill instruction from sophomores through graduate students alongside degreed public school teachers.

“Without this program, I absolutely would not have gone to college. The tutors looked like they were having fun as college students. They were good roles models for showing us what college is about.”
