SUNY Westchester EOC has been serving Westchester County since 1973 and believes that service to the community is a critical and vital part of our business. We welcome a community role that goes beyond the walls of a traditional classroom setting — for example, our staff are available to speak at and often participate in community forums, conferences and other venues to address education, workforce preparation and human-services concerns of underserved populations. We also host events that bring together like-minded individuals and representatives from area community-based organizations, non-profit agencies and local government to network and collaborate on initiatives supporting the community of Westchester.
While our services vary from year to year, there are standing services that we provide to the Westchester community on a regular basis, including:
High School Equivalency (HSE) Testing
Westchester EOC is an official HSE Testing Center, approved by the New York State Education Department. We offer the HSE Test to students and community members, according to a statewide schedule. Tests are generally administered on Wednesdays, from 12:30 PM until 4:30 PM.
To schedule a test, go to GED.com, create an account, and choose Westchester EOC as your testing center.
Testing seats must be reserved in advance. Walk-ins cannot be accepted.
On the day of the test, all testers must bring with them a form of government-issued photo identification (e.g., driver license, passport).
Please call 914-606-7656 for additional information about GED testing at Westchester EOC.
College Connections Initiative (CCI)
Our College Connections Initiative offers an array of services and activities for students and community members who are interested in attending college and would like assistance in preparing for the admissions process and overall college experience. In addition to providing academic advisement and helping students with enrollment and financial-aid applications, CCI hosts various workshops, an annual College Spirit Week — including a college fair — and tours of various schools.
Westchester EOC hosts job fairs every fall and spring, featuring area employers who are looking to hire candidates for open positions. All job-seekers are invited to attend, learn about different jobs and companies — and, in some cases, interview onsite.
Our Advanced Technology Training and Information Networking (ATTAIN) Lab offers interactive software, electronic databases, media systems and other materials designed to enhance student learning outcomes through technologically advanced instruction. The Lab offers digital parity to community residents by making computers and information technology accessible to those least able to afford in-home computers and/or online access. In addition, Westchester EOC students are able to use the lab to reinforce and/or supplement classroom instruction or to study independently. For more information on the ATTAIN Lab, click here.
