What is EOPS?

The San Bernardino Community College District recognizes that as a result of financial need, language barriers, and other academic challenges, some students may require specialized support services in order to achieve their college success. Extended Opportunity Programs & Services (EOPS) is a state-funded program that provides uniquely designed services to full-time SBVC students, who also demonstrate both economic and educational disadvantages.

Eligible EOPS students will have access to the following: "extended" academic, career, and personal counseling, textbook purchase and/or rental assistance, transportation assistance, priority A registration, transfer assistance, and specialized workshops that address the unique challenges faced by EOPS students.

EOPS also offers Cooperative Agencies Resources for Education (CARE) to EOPS students who are single-parents receiving cash-aid assistance, also known as a CalWORKs grant, for themselves and/or their dependent children under the age of 18. CARE services are in addition to those provided by EOPS. For more information about the CARE Program, please visit our CARE page.
