Welcome to EOPS

EOPS office has moved!

EOPS will be relocating to our New Student Services Center (SS4 Upper Level - Room 414) on Thursday, December 18th . We will reopen at our new location Friday, December 19th.



The EOPS Mission

EOPS is a state-funded, student support service program established to promote the enrollment, retention, persistence, and success (i.e., transfer, degrees, certificates) of students from low-income, underrepresented backgrounds in higher education by offering services that are above, beyond, and in addition to services available to all Los Medanos College students.


The EOPS Vision

EOPS students and staff are passionate change‐agents who thrive as they create and nurture intentional, academic partnerships. Partnerships that inspire people to choose trust over fear, equity over injustice, responsibility over victimhood, hope over apathy, self‐honesty over competition, and link personal success to the success of the greater good.



Through EOPS and CARE, eligible students receive supplemental educational support services, such as assistance developing educational plans, personal counseling, peer support, academic progress support, and guidance in developing effective academic networks. In addition, grants and allowances for transportation, books, and supplies are provided to enhance the retention, persistence, graduation and transfer rates of EOPS students.
