IMG_2691What Services Does EOPS Offer?

Many students learn about EOPS because we offer money to books to eligible students, but EOPS is a lot more than a book program. EOPS offers many services to help you succeed in your academic goals.


EOPS/CARE/CalWORKs provides professional counselors to help with academic and personal concerns. Counselors help students stay focused throughout their studies.

EOPS/CARE students who are enrolled in 6 or more units in their declared COA career technical education (CTE) program will receive an additional grant to assist them with the additional cost for materials that these programs require.

CSU/UC Application Fee Waiver

EOPS/CARE will provide assistance to those students who are planning to transfer to a four year institution by helping students register for their CSU/UC application fee waiver.

 Book Grant

Book Grants provide money for books to help eligible students defray the cost of required textbooks.
