Welcome to EOP&S
Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOP&S)
EOP&S is a state-funded support program designed to assist qualified low-income and educationally disadvantaged students in completing their educational goals with the assistance of financial and student support services. It's an invitational program open only to those who qualify and commit to participate in the program.
EOP&S Student Learning Outcomes
It is the goal of EOP&S to ensure that each participating student is proficient in understanding the complexities of higher education, knowledgeable of resources necessary to be successful in their studies, and to develop a "road map" to achieving their objectives. EOP&S evaluates its effectiveness in providing quality services by identifying student learning outcomes and assessing the extent to which students have achieved those outcomes.
- Identify their career objective
- Identify their academic objective
- Follow their Student Educational Plan developed in conjunction with their EOP&S counselor
Students will enhance their success by:
- Participating in EOP&S Tutoring
- Receiving books through the EOP&S Book Service
- Participating in Academic Probation Workshops
Students will be successful participants in EOP&S by attending an EOP&S New Student Orientation. They will develop a sense of self-worth and accomplishment by participating in the annual EOP&S Graduation/Transfer ceremony.
The EOP&S application process is now open. The application will be available online only and we will open the application process again approximately one month prior to the semester's start date. For Spring 2019, applications will be open on January 14th, 2019.
