Welcome to EOPS-CARE

EOPS Services for Spring 2020 - Important COVID-19 modifications (3-23-20)

The college has suspended all face-to-face classes and face-to-face student interactions on both campuses beginning Monday, March 16. All campus facilities will be closed to students to minimize the spread of the coronavirus until further notice. Beginning Wednesday, March 18,  the college is now delivering classes and student support services remotely. 

EOPS has modified services to be able to support students remotely. The college and the program are closing monitoring local and national reports about the spread of COVID-19. We will update students through email communication and by webpage updates. Please monitor your DVC InSite email accounts. Contact our office by email if you have questions. 

LET US KNOW HOW WE CAN HELP!
We recognize this is a challenging time for everyone. The program welcomes your feedback and input so we can help you continue to be a successful student. We invite you to please take a moment to answer this brief survey.
 
Your health and safety are of the utmost important to us. If you have questions or concerns, please email or call the EOPS office.

Progress reports

Now that the college has moved to online and remote instruction and services, EOPS progress reports can only be submitted online. To allow time for the transition of faculty, students, and staff to this new online format, the progress report deadline has been extended to Friday, April 10, 2020.

The progress report form is available online. During this period of remote instruction, you may use the online version of the form to send to your instructors for feedback. 

To submit your completed EOPS progress reports remotely, please follow these steps:

  1. Using your DVC InSite email, email your completed EOPS progress. If progress reports are received from a non-DVC InSite email, you will be asked to resend using InSite.
  2. In the subject line and/or body of the email, please include your full name and student ID.

Progress report frequently asked questions:

Q: What if I completed my progress reports before the campus went online? How do I submit my paper progress reports?

A: If you completed progress reports before the closure and need to submit a paper progress report, you can take a photo of your progress report and email it to EOPSCARE@dvc.edu.

Q: What if my instructor is having trouble using the progress report form?

A: If your instructor is not able to fill out the online form, it is okay to ask them to email you or the EOPSCARE@dvc.edu address directly with a written description about how you are doing in the class.
