Transfer EOP Application Process


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