Full Circle Advising

The Full Circle Project (FCP) is an academic retention program that addresses and supports the diverse needs and interests of Sacramento State’s Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) students as well as other high need students. The Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) serves California residents from low-income households who demonstrate the motivation and potential to earn a baccalaureate degree. Incoming AAPI first-year students often apply to both programs to receive the most opportunities and support as they transition from high school to Sacramento State. Academic advising is an integral program service that many students can benefit from in their educational, professional, personal, and leadership developments. Any accepted incoming FCP first-year students that are also accepted to EOP will follow the EOP first-year advising requirement.
