Extended Opportunity Program And Services (EOPS)
Extended Opportunity Program and Services (EOPS) is designed to improve access, retention and completion of educational goals for students who are low income and educationally disadvantaged. EOPS students have the potential to succeed in college but have not been able to realize their potential because of economic and/or educational barriers.
EOPS offers a range of services such as academic, career, personal counseling, priority registration, transfer assistance, UC, and CSU admission application fee waivers, book grant or voucher service, and calculator and SMART pen loan program. In addition, students who are single heads of households receiving AFDC/TANF or CalWORKs with a child under the age of 14 are eligible for the Cooperative Agencies Resources for Education (CARE) program. CARE provides additional services and support to students by way of transportation assistance, grants, and special workshops specifically tailored to the needs of CARE students.
EOPS is committed to helping students access the resources necessary to succeed in college and works cooperatively with other programs and services on campus whose goals are enhancing scholastic achievement and academic excellence. EOPS also sponsors activities and workshops that provide cultural enrichment and promote personal growth.
