eop phto

All incoming first year (freshmen) EOP students will attend Orientation on Monday June 29, 2015. This program is not for EOP transfer students - see Transfer Orientation for details.

EOP First Year Orientation is designed to help new EOP students get off to the right start by learning about academic requirements, learning more about EOP and learning about campus programs and services. Students cannot register for classes unless they attend Orientation.

In addition, all incoming EOP admitted first year students are required to participate in the EOP Summer Bridge Academy. The Summer Bridge Academy is a unique six-week program that takes place this summer for students in the EOP program. To be eligible for the EOP Summer Bridge Academy, students must be admitted to EOP. For further information on EOP Summer Bridge Academy.
