Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS) is a state-funded program. Established in 1969 with the passage of Senate Bill 164, EOPS is a pioneer program among student success-based initiatives and its components have shown to be essential factors in student success.
The EOPS program's mission is to encourage the enrollment, retention, graduation and transfer of students disadvantaged by language barriers and/or social, economic and educational circumstances. EOPS services are designed to give students individualized attention and support as they work to achieve their academic goals.
