To qualify for EOPS you must meet all five of the following requirements:

  • Be a California Resident
  • Be enrolled full-time (12 units or more)
  • Not have completed more than 70 units of degree applicable college level course work
  • Qualify for the Board of Governor's Fee Waiver (BOGFW)

In addition, to be eligible for an EOPS grant you need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine unmet financial need.

How to Apply

EOPS is no longer accepting applications for the spring 2014 semester.  Applications for fall 2014 will be accepted starting May 5, 2014. 

EOPS is funded to serve a limited number of students and reserves the right to cease accepting applications when that number is reached.


If you are participating in EOPS and are receiving TANF  or CalWORKs, consider applying for the CARE program. Get the CARE application from our office in E1-403.
