Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS)

In the late 1960's, several counselors, staff, and students joined to form the College Readiness Program (CRP). A new program unique to College of San Mateo, CRP provided a variety of services to low-income, academically underprepared students to assist them in realizing their educational goals. Now, more than three decades and one assembly bill later, Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS) can be found on 108 colleges throughout California.
