Extended Opportunity Programs & Services

Utilizing a student-centered approach, Mt. SAC’s EOPS/CARE program provides over and above personalized ongoing comprehensive support services to historically underrepresented and low-socioeconomic students in order to increase their sense of belonging, self-efficacy and awareness of opportunities to help students achieve their academic and personal goals.

As a comprehensive state-funded program, EOPS is driven by a philosophy of providing “over, above and in addition to” services to eligible Mt. SAC students.

CARE is a supplemental component of EOPS that specifically assists EOPS students who are single heads of welfare households with young children, by offering supportive services so they are able to acquire the education, training and marketable skills needed to transition from welfare-dependency to employment and eventual self-sufficiency for their families. Every CARE student is an EOPS student who must meet the eligibility criteria for both programs.
