EOPS will be opening up a limited number of slots for new applicants for the Spring 2014 semester. New applications will be available in the EOPS Office beginning Monday, December 2, 2013 and is currently accessible online at the following link: Spring 2014 EOPS Application. The application period will close on Friday, January 24, 2014. The EOPS program is a highly impacted program. Only eligible students will be offered a space on a first-come, first-served basis based on need and state guidelines for EOPS eligibility. A summary of the application requirements can be found here: EOPS Application Guidelines and Requirements.

Eligible EOPS students, who are single parents who are participating in CalWORKs/TANF, and have children thirteen years of age or younger, may also apply for the CARE Program. If you are a potential CARE student or would like more information, please contact the EOPS Office.


ATTENTION! New Office Suite Check-In Process

Beginning Fall 2013, all students accessing the CalWORKS, EOPS/CARE, Scholarship, and WorkAbility III offices will be required to check-in with their student ID at the check-in station. This allows for the programs to keep better track of the students accessing the services and maintain the privacy of other students. Tracking visitors in our offices will provide us with much needed information regarding the needs of our students which can impact the services we provide and staffing needs.

We ask that all of our students cooperate as we work through this new process. Thank you.
