The Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS) is a state-funded support program designed to provide academic support, financial assistance and encouragement for eligible, financially disadvantaged, and academically underprepared students. The goal of the program is to help eligible students meet their educational objectives, whether they seek occupational certificates, associate degrees, or transfer to four-year institutions.

To provide above-and-beyond support services to eligible, academically and economically under-prepared students to achieve their educational goals.  


As a supplemental component, EOPS runs a state-funded program to provide additional support for SBCC's single parent population. The Cooperative Agencies Resources for Education (CARE) program serves low-income single parent students who receive cash aid from CalWORKs. In addition, CARE provides educational support services designed for the academically underprepared. Financial assistance and childcare may be awarded as a means of strengthening the retention, persistence, graduation, and transfer rates of these individuals. Students participating in CARE may choose to pursue vocational certificate or license, associate degree, or transfer to four-year universities.
