There are many rewards from higher education, including
better paying careers, personal satisfaction, and the respect of those
who support you. At EOPS (Extended Opportunity Programs and Services),
our goal is to help increase the enrollment, retention and transfer of
students who experience language, social, economic and educational
challenges. We also help facilitate the successful completion of
student's goals and objectives while attending Shasta College. EOPS
provides several services, including but not limited to, specialized
counseling, book services, transportation assistance, and tutoring.
Under the umbrella of EOPS is the CARE (Cooperative
Agencies Resources for Education) program. CARE is designed to help
single parents who are currently receiving cash aid (CalWORKS/TANF)
offset their childcare, transportation and textbook expenses. These
additional services assist CARE students in balancing multiple
responsibilities while pursuing their college education.
We have a long history of helping students just like
you. EOPS was created by the California State Legislature in 1969. The
philosophy that formed EOPS is still alive today-that a well educated
California is a stronger, more prosperous California. EOPS is a program
dedicated to helping you succeed.
