The Center for Educational Opportunity (CeO) empowers eligible students to engage and achieve through holistic advising, connecting students with campus resources, and fostering a supportive climate for all students. Students are eligible if they are the first in their family to earn a 4-year degree, meet certain federal family income guidelines, or have a documented disability.

CeO helps students matriculate at the UW–Madison with the support of two federally funded TRIO grants and a state-funded program: Student Support Services (SSS), Student Support Services-STEM-Health Sciences (STEM-HS), and the state-funded Academic Success and Achievement Program (ASAP).
