Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS) was established to help community college students from economically and educationally disadvantaged backgrounds succeed in their educational goals and transferring to a four-year institution.

At Mendocino College, the goal of EOPS is to help you succeed in your educational goals. We provide educationally under-prepared and economically disadvantaged students with the tools needed to get the most out of what college has to offer.

The EOPS Program enhances your educational success through academic counseling, textbook assistance, and a variety of valuable support services.

As a team, the EOPS Staff offers you guidance in a supportive atmosphere that promotes independence, self-esteem, and overall personal success.
