EOP History and Purpose

In 1969, the State Legislature approved funding for the Educational Opportunity Program in California. The following year, EOP was established at Humboldt State University for the purpose of increasing access and improving retention of low-income and historically underrepresented students in higher education. EOP provides admissions, academic and financial assistance to eligible low-income California residents. Priority for admission into EOP is given to students who are unable to meet regular university admission requirements and to those who will need academic support to successfully complete their college studies. Both freshmen and transfer students who wish to be considered for EOP must apply prior to enrolling at a California State University.
