"EOP was there for me even before I started my education at Chico State and became more like a family to me than a support service."
– Veronica Coates, School Psychologist
EOP Admissions provides admissions assistance through the Educational Opportunity Program for students who are historically low-income and first generation to attend college. Students may be academically under-prepared or lacking the subject requirements, grades, or test scores normally required for college attendance, but have demonstrated the potential for academic success. All freshman EOP applicants are automatically considered for the First Year Experience.
PLEASE NOTE: We highly encourage all interested students to apply to EOP online at the CSUMentor Web site. The process is simple and if you do need help, you can always call EOP Admissions. You can even have your recommendations filled out online on your behalf. Simply provide the e-mail addresses for two people who have agreed to recommend you to our program and they will receive an e-mail from CSUMentor directing them to a customized recommendation form for you.
If you choose to submit a paper application, you can find and print the application at: www.calstate.edu/sas/documents/EOPapplicationbooklet.pdf. If you are not able to access the EOP application online, please contact our office so that we can find an alternate means for you to obtain it.
