Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS) and Cooperative Agencies Resources for Education (CARE) at College of San Mateo are committed to providing access to higher education for individuals challenged by academic and socioeconomic barriers.

EOPS/CARE strives to provide an environment that nurtures, engages, and reflects a diverse "family" of participants. By offering eligible students comprehensive support services that are academically and socially enriching, the staff and counselors seek to empower students to realize their full human potential.

The EOPS/CARE program is now accepting applications for Fall 2020.


COVID-19 Update

As part of the SMCCCD's COVID-19 emergency response as well as the health and safety of the community, College of San Mateo has moved to fully online instruction and student support. EOPS/CARE and CalWORKs will be available to support you via virtual formats (phone, email, online meetings) during our regular business hours.

You may reach a live EOPS/CARE/CalWORKs staff person by phone at (650) 574-6154 during business hours, or email csmeops@smccd.edu and we will respond to your inquiry within 24 hours (or the next business day for weekend inquiries).

The EOPS program has developed an EOPS Student Resource Guide for EOPS students that includes all updates from the program and additional links for academic, health and personal support. Please feel free to bookmark the site as updates will be made directly to the guide.
