Educational Opportunity Program


The Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) at CSULB is dedicated to serving first-generation, historically low-income students by providing access and equity to higher education. EOP promotes student achievement by providing one-on-one, developmental academic and financial aid counseling and utilizes high-impact practices such as tutoring, orientation, transitional programming, career and graduate school exploration, enrichment activities, and community outreach to contribute to student success. EOP advocates for equitable outcomes for students and is committed to facilitating inclusion throughout the campus community.
