Santa Ana College's Extended Opportunities Programs and Services (EOPS) is a state-funded program which works with students whose educational and socioeconomic backgrounds might limit their access to higher education or hinder their ability to be academically successful in their college-level studies. Students who meet EOPS eligibility criteria are provided services that are “over and above” those services provided by Santa Ana College to all students.
These “over and above” services are designed to help EOPS students:
Identify an educational goal (Certificate, Associate’s Degree, and/or preparation for transfer) that fits with their academic/career interests;
Develop and follow an educational plan that helps them reach their educational goal in a time-efficient manner;
Achieve success in their college-level studies and maximize their learning experiences here at SAC.
As an EOPS student, you will receive:
Assistance with cost of textbooks and school supplies
Tutoring appointments: EOPS Resource Center
Referrals to campus and community resources
