encouraging enrollment and retention
EOPS & CARE Offices now in CC2 - 257 (below cafeteria).
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.
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.
