BRIEF: EOPS awaits new applicants for spring 2023

Updated: Mar 10, 2023

Monarchs can still apply to be a part of the Extended Opportunity Programs and Services.

Valley college students still have some time before the upcoming EOPS deadline.

Extended Opportunity Program and Services is a program for community college students who have experienced educational hardships and have faced challenges, whether they be economic, social or educational. EOPS provides eligible students with resources to help them achieve their educational goals. They provide services such as counseling, priority registration, tutoring, textbook help and many more services.

“To succeed in college, it is important to have support,” said Sherri Rodriguez, dean of student services. “Having a campus support system is critical, especially for first-generation college students.”

Eligible students must meet certain requirements. Monarchs have to be educationally challenged, meaning there are circumstances, such as being first-generation or being a part of an underrepresented group. Possible applicants must also be considered low-income by the Valley Financial Aid Office and qualify for a California College Promise Grant. Eligible students must be a resident of California or meet the DACA requirements. In addition to these requirements, students must have less than 50 units from attended colleges and be enrolled in 12 or more units at Valley.

The EOPS office on campus is located on the second floor of the student services building and is directed by Rodriguez.

For questions and application assistance, students can visit the EOPS website at or call (818) 947-2432. Monarchs are also welcome to visit the EOPS office during business hours.

The deadline to apply for the spring term of 2023 is Sunday, March 12.
