There are many rewards from higher education, including better paying careers, personal satisfaction, and the respect of those who support you.  At Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS), 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 students' 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 Cooperative Agencies Resources for Education (CARE) program.  CARE is designed to help single parents who are currently receiving cash aid (CalWORK​s or TANF) offset their child care, 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.
