Transfer EOP Application Process


EOP at Sacramento State is different than EOPS at the Community college. The EOPS grant, advising requirements and other services received at the Community College, will be different than the services we offer. Our emphasis is on thorough, timely advising and career guidance. Due to financial limitations, not all students will receive the EOP grant.

If admitted to EOP, the following services are offered:

  • Academic counseling
  • Career counseling
  • EOP computer lab
  • EOP Ambassadors - peer advising
  • EOP Grant to eligible students and if funding permits
  • Financial Aid advising
  • Learning communities
  • Personal counseling
  • Speakers/lectures/workshops
  • Referrals to Faculty Student Mentor Program (FSMP)
  • Referrals to other departments or agencies

Please Note: EOP stands for Educational Opportunity Program and EOPS stands for Extended Opportunity Programs and Services.
