Educational Opportunity Program

About EOP

The Educational Opportunity Program is designed to improve student academic support of low-income and educationally disadvantaged students. An EOP student has the potential to perform satisfactorily in the CSU but has not been able to realize this potential because of economic or educational background. The program provides admission, academic, and financial assistance to EOP-eligible undergraduate students.

What Can EOP Do For You?

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, reading, or 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.

Who May Apply?

Only low-income, disadvantaged students who need admission assistance and support services to succeed in college are admitted to EOP. They must demonstrate academic potential, motivation to succeed, and meet the income criteria.
