  • Waiver of Full-Time Enrollment Requirement

    New students applying to EOPS who believe that their life circumstances will not allow them to successfully complete 12 units may request permission to enroll in EOPS with less than 12 units. Waivers are granted solely at the discretion of the EOPS director on a case-base basis and cannot be requested in back-to-back semesters. Email the EOPS office to request at lmceops@losmedanos.edu
