Educational Opportunity Program (EOP)

What is EOP?
The Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) is charged with improving access and retention of low-income and first generation students. An EOP student is one who has the potential to perform satisfactorily in CSU but who has not been able to realize this potential because of economic or educational background. The program provides admission, academic, and financial assistance to eligible undergraduate students.  

What can EOP do for you?
First, EOP provides information to help you select a campus and assists you in completing the admission process. Once admitted as an EOP student, you can enroll in an EOP summer program to strengthen your math, English, and other skills. Orientation sessions are provided to help you learn about campus services and programs. During your enrollment in college, you can receive counseling, tutoring, and advising services. If you are eligible, an EOP grant may be awarded. EOP will also help you apply to graduate school or for a job related to your major.  

Who may apply?
Low-income, disadvantaged students who need admission assistance and support services to succeed in college should apply to EOP. They must demonstrate academic potential and motivation to succeed, they must be California residents, and they must be approved by the EOP selection committee based on educational background and the EOP income criteria.
