Our Best Answer - What is EOP?

Educational Opportunity Program (EOP)

Cal Poly Pomona's Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) continues to operate today as the University's first and most comprehensive post- secondary access and equity program. Established in 1969, the program serves low-income, first generation, students who demonstrate the motivation and potential to succeed in college

EOP provides the students they serve with a broad range of support services throughout their undergraduate enrollment, as long as they maintain full-time status, satisfactory academic progress and fulfill program requirements.  These services include transition programs, comprehensive academic advising, tutoring, financial literacy and student success seminars and community building activities.  EOP students may also qualify an EOP Grant to assist in paying for their college education.

To qualify for admission to EOP, you must:

  • Be a first-time applicant to the CSU System*
  • Enroll as an undergraduate student
  • Meet specific family income guidelines
  • Demonstrate potential for academic success and be motivated to achieve your educational goals
  • Be a California resident or an AB540 non-resident tuition exemption student
  • Enroll as a full-time student (at least 12 units per semester)


EOP students transferring from another CSU are eligible upon verification of EOP status at the previous CSU.

More information about the program and how to apply is available at the EOP website.
