Benefits of EOP

In addition to the academic support, supplemental economic aid, and ready support system built in to the program, EOP also:

  • Provides a counselor who serves as a mentor and supports EOP students with their entire academic journey.
  • Connects students to meaningful available support services within the program, on campus, and in the surrounding community.
  • Allows students to earn college credit during the Pre-Freshman Orientation and Summer Enrichment Academy (Mandatory).
  • Increases the preparedness of EOP students entering into four-year schools and the workforce.
  • Cultivates student leaders who will impact their regional and global communities.
  • Provides Supplies Awards to cover the costs of books and supplies through a direct aid award. These awards are to be used for academic supply purchases only.
  • Provides Direct Aid Awards as modest assistance to cover the cost of college expenses other than tuition.
  • Welcomes and immerses students in an EOP family through which they can access life-long support and networking, and provides a pipeline of support for future generations of EOP students. Once accepted into the program, students are forever “Proud to be EOP.”
