EOPS & CARE

Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS) is a California Community College program to assist educationally disadvantaged students with financial need who want to attend college. The Antelope Valley College EOPS program receives state and district funds to recruit, enroll, and support these students that may not otherwise seek higher education.

Mission

The mission of the Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS) program is to support the primary goals of recruiting, retaining, and transitioning students who have language, social, economic, and/or educational disadvantages.  The program provides student support delivery service and programs which are “over, above, and in addition” to the regular programs and services offered by the college.
