About the Educational Opportunity Programs

Where Students Come First!!


Since its inception in 1969, Educational Opportunity Programs (EOP) has assisted thousands of students from underrepresented backgrounds.  We assist and support students throughout the enrollment process and their educational journey.  Many EOP graduates have remained in their respective communities as active leaders in government, industry and various professional fields.

EOP is comprised of the American Indian Student Services (AISS), Asian American Student Services (AASS), Black Student Services (BSs), and Hispanic Student Services (HSS).  EOP was designed to provide support to students of color and underrepresented student populations; however, we welcome all students.
