Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS)

Extended Opportunity Program & Services (EOPS) at Santa Monica College is a program that supports the enrollment, retention, graduation and transfer of students who are challenged by language, social, economic, and educational disadvantages. 

As a comprehensive state-funded program, EOPS is driven by a philosophy of providing services that are “over and above and in addition to” services available to all students. EOPS provides support through counseling, tutoring, financial assistance, transferring to a four-year institution, priority registration, and more!

EOPS strives for innovative and creative ways to enhance and encourage academic success and excellence, while fostering the personal growth and development in each participant. Other support programs available include Cooperative Agencies Resources for Education (CARE), CalWORKs, and Guardian Scholars (foster youth). Information on these programs can be found at the links on the left.
