About the EOPS Program

The Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS) Program at Ohlone College strives to meet the educational needs of students who are hindered by language, social, and economic disadvantages. EOPS offers a menu of programs and services that facilitates the process of supporting students in achieving their academic, transfer, personal and career goals.

The experience of connecting, engaging, collaborating and building a community with a crew of students, and a team of professionals who authentically care is life-changing. The EOPS motto is, “If students are doing it alone, they are doing it wrong!”

The Primary Purpose of EOPS is to prepare students to complete a vocational certificate or associate degree, or transfer to a four-year university, which can lead to a rewarding career as a result of their educational experience.

Our Philosophy
