EOPS semester eligibility requirements


 

In order to remain in good standing with EOPS, each semester EOPS students must complete the following semester requirements:

  • Complete at least 67 percent of enrolled units and maintain at least a 2.0 semester GPA.
  • Complete at least one drop-in peer advising visit each semester in the EOPS Office.
  • Complete mid-semester EOPS progress reports and return to an EOPS counselor for review by the stated deadline.
  • Complete two scheduled EOPS counseling visits each semester in the Counseling Center (drop-in visits do NOT count). Must be at least two weeks apart.

Counseling appointments may be scheduled over the phone or in person with the EOPS/CARE Office or Counseling Center. Be sure when you are scheduling an appointment with the Counseling Center to identify yourself as an EOPS student.

NOTE: Counseling appointments may also be scheduled online through e-SARS. However, please be aware appointments with full-time EOPS counselors, Alicia Brizzi and Paula Stanfield, are not available online. If you would like to see either Alicia or Paula, please schedule directly with the EOPS Office or Counseling Center.
