How to Apply - Educational Opportunity Program
For over 45 years, the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) at SF State University has improved access and retention of historically underserved (low income, first generation college) students by facilitating their matriculation into SF State and by providing a support system for their success. EOP is a comprehensive program designed to provide students with outreach, admissions, academic, and financial support. Students receive on-going advising, tutoring, mentoring and workshops designed to increase retention and graduation rates. Eligible EOP students are encouraged to apply to additional EOP programs such as Summer Bridge - an eight week intensive academic summer program that fulfills the Early Start Program requirement, Guardian Scholars Program - a comprehensive program that serves former foster care youth, and Student Support Services - a federally funded TRIO program that provides intensive academic support for students in their first two years of college.
