Extended Opportunity Program & Services (EOPS)
Extended Opportunity Programs & Services (EOPS) is designed to make sure students who have been impacted by social, economic, educational or linguistic barriers get the resources they need to enroll and succeed at any California community college.
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 computer, calculator and SMART pen loans. In addition, students who are single heads of households receiving AFDC/TANF or CalWORKs with a child under the age of 18 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.
