Unfortunately, for the Spring 2017 semester EOPS met capacity and will not be accepting any more students. If you are interested in the program and would like information about when we will begin taking new students, please fill this form here.
The EOPS/CARE Program (for single parents receiving TANF/Cash Aid) is still accepting applications.
Guardian Scholars/ CAFYES (for current/former Foster Youth) will be accepting applications throughout the semester.
The mission of EOPS (Extended Opportunity Programs and Services) at Los Angeles Valley College is to assist eligible students who have historically experienced economic and educational challenges. To increase access, retention and goal completion, EOPS provides the following "over and above" services:
- textbook vouchers
- priority registration
- progress monitoring
- and other services
Here are a few student highlights...
Evelyn Batres is transferring to UCLA after being accepted to UC Berkeley, UC Santa Barbara and a few others. She has faced many challenges including when she was in a junior in high school she became pregnant. Now, six years later she credits her daughter for inspiring her to achieve her academic goals. Also, she states that, “…EOP&S change my life!”
When he started at Valley College, Jean Carlo Palacios placed into below college level math on the placement test. Yet his EOPS counselor …”believed in my ability to succeed in the sciences, a belief that I didn’t even have for myself.” This fall, he is transferring to UCLA as a mathematics major.
Single mother, Shonta Price, credits the EOPS tutors with helping her overcome her math anxiety. Also, she was inspired by her six-year-old daughter, who says, “Mommy, don’t give up, you can do it!” This fall, she is transferring to Pepperdine University.
