About EOPS


Extended Opportunities Programs and Services (EOPS) is a state-funded program designed for the orientation, recruitment and retention of California residents who are economically, socially, and educationally disadvantaged. EOPS assists students in reaching their educational goals through academic support and financial assistance.


EOPS, with sensitivity and responsiveness to emergency needs, provides a variety of innovative and traditional support services to eligible EOPS students leading to positive and measurable educational outcomes.


Palomar College EOPS identifies, recruits, supports and educates matriculating, non-traditional students who come to the college environment educationally under-prepared and who may not achieve their fullest academic potential without EOPS intervention.
