Extended Opportunities Programs & Services (EOP&S)

What is EOP&S?

Extended Opportunity Program & Services (EOP&S) is a program that is designed to assist low-income and educationally-disadvantaged students to achieve their educational goals at the Compton Center. The program encourages the enrollment, retention, and transfer of students who are challenged by language, social, economic, and educational disadvantages. The goal of EOP&S is to facilitate the successful completion of goals and objectives at the Compton Center by providing services which are over, above, and in addition to those provided to the general college population.


EOP&S offers academic and support counseling, financial aid and other support services for educationally disadvantaged students. Services include: Priority Registration, textbook grants, transportation assistance and academic achievement grants.


The Cooperative Agencies Resources for Education (CARE) program is a unique educational program geared toward EOP&S student who are currently receiving CalWORKs/TANF/AFDC and desire a job-relevant education. As a supplemental component of EOP&S, the CARE program is designed to provide educational support services as a means of strengthening the retention, persistence, graduation and transfer rates of its participants.


In addition to EOP&S services, CARE students receive special counseling and advisement, orientation, personal development, support services, peer advising, direct grants, CPR/First Aid training, workshops of interest to single parents, assistance with purchasing books and supplies, child care referrals and information, and campus- and community-based referrals.
