Continuing EOPS Students:

EOPS is committed to your success, and toward that goal, our philosophy is to hold you accountable to the EOPS Student Responsibilities listed in the Mutual Responsibilities Contract.

Students who have completed 6* (or more) consecutive semesters in EOPS and have completed less than 70 associate level, degree applicable units will remain eligible for EOPS until they reach 70 units, as space allows. In addition, a student must meet all of student responsibilities as stated in the Mutual Responsibilities Contract. Continued eligibility is determined each semester through EOPS Intake.
