EOP Alumni

Once EOP, Always EOP!

Sacramento State's Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) helps low-income and educationally disadvantaged students pursue their life goals and dreams. We are proud to have you as alumni to share in this tradition. As you know, Sacramento State's EOP office was established in 1968 as one of the first operational programs in California. The primary aim of the EOP was to help improve the access and retention of low-income and educationally disadvantaged students by providing them with services necessary to be successful in college.

EOP students have continued to graduate from Sacramento State and flourish within the community for the last 50 years, yet there are many young Californians from low-income and first-generation families who need assistance from EOP and our alumni community to know they can attain their dreams of a degree from Sacramento State.
