Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (E.O.P. & S.)

What is EOP&S?

EOP&S is an acronym for Extended Opportunity Program and Services. The program’s main focus is to provide services to students who come from low-income families
and who have an educational disadvantage. EOP&S provides an atmosphere of positive encouragement directed to the enrollment of students who are disadvantaged by
economic circumstances.

What does EOP&S Offer?
  • Grants & book services
  • Individualized counseling
  • Educational planning
  • Tutoring services
  • Assessments
  • Peer advising
  • Progress reviews
  • Assistance with applications, admission, registration, financial aid and other college procedures
  • Transfer assistance and information

EOP&S provides to all qualified individuals a network of direct support services including financial aid, academic, career and personal counseling, special
advisement, and tutorial services as needed. We help to ensure a student’s success while attending college. The financial aid and support services will help the
students extend their education beyond high school. The students will be able to acquire job skills, leadership, and the self confidence necessary to secure opportunities
for better employment.

How do I apply and qualify?

In order to participate in EOP&S and CARE, you must complete, file, and qualify for the Board of Governors Fee Waiver (BOG) as well as complete the EOP&S application
and enroll as a full-time student (12 or more units) for the current semester. It is recommended that you complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Your application
will be evaluated and you will be contacted concerning your eligibility for the program.

*Note* If you will not be a full-time student, you may still qualify for EOP&S if you are evaluated by Disabled Students Program and Services (DSPS) and diagnosed with
a specific learning disability. You may contact the DSPS office for more information.

If you have further questions, please contact the EOP&S/CARE office at Woodland Community College and our staff will provide you with any additional information.
