We are now accepting EOPS Applications for Fall 2019!
Steps to Apply for EOPS
Step 1: Student submits an EOPS Application to the Financial Aid/EOPS Office. EOPS Applications may also be submitted to one of the Centers (North County Center, Lake Center, Coast Center), faxed to 707-468-3197, or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step 2: Student must do the following before the student's EOPS Application can be processed:

Submit grade transcripts from all other colleges attended to the Admissions Office (or an unofficial copy, printed from the college's website, may be submitted with the EOPS Application).
Step 3: The EOPS Office processes the student's EOPS Application and notifies the student whether or not the student is eligible. The student will be notified by email, and a notation will be made in the student's WebAdvisor (under MyDocuments). Students should make sure they have a valid email address that they check often.
