Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS)

EOPS is a State funded comprehensive academic counseling program designed to provide additional support to eligible fulltime students.
 
Our mission is to enhance student success by providing “over and above” services to students with economic and academic barriers to their education. Another fundamental goal of the program is to increase the number of underrepresented students enrolled in the community college. This is accomplished by providing an overall supportive environment with a variety of benefits and services. Eligibility is determined by academic and financial need as mandated by the state.
 
Before applying for EOPS, students must have applied for the California College Promise Grant (formerly known as the BOG Fee Waiver) through the Financial Aid Office.
