EOPS & CARE

The Extended Opportunity Programs & Services (EOPS) program is a State-funded program designed to provide "Over and Above" support services to students who are from educationally and financially disadvantaged backgrounds. EOPS promotes student success with priority one registration, educational planning, progress monitoring, and assistance with the cost of required textbooks. Participation in this program is limited to California residents or California Dream Act students who are eligible to receive the California College Promise Grant (formerly the Board of Governors Enrollment Fee Waiver A or B), are in good academic standing, are enrolled full-time, and have an educational disadvantage.

EOPS students who are single, head of household, CalWORKs/TANF recipients may also be eligible to participate in the Cooperative Agencies Resources for Education (CARE) program. CARE provides specialized counseling and workshops, as well as transportation services and financial assistance with child care expenses.
