What We Offer

General EOP Program Information

The Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) at California State University, East Bay  is proud to have improved access and retention of historically under-served (low income, first generation college) students by facilitating their matriculation into East Bay for more than 50 years.  We are pleased to continue this tradition each year by providing a support system for students to succeed at the university and beyond.  

EOP at East Bay is a comprehensive program designed to target students with academic potential who’ve not been able to fully realize it due to economic / educational barriers.  We provide college admission assistance to first-generation, low income and educationally under-served students and offer proactive culturally sensitive and personalized services to meet the needs of a diverse student population.
