EOPS, CARE, Guardian Scholars and UMOJA

EOPS/CAREEOPS, CARE, Guardian Scholars, and UMOJA programs will reopen remotely on Tuesday March 31, 2020, with weekday hours from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m.   


Our primary goal is to serve you safely. In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), all programs are taking steps to protect our students, peers, and communities by limiting exposure while still servicing students. Our first step is to provide you services remotely via online, phone and email.  


EOPS students please check your CANVAS for updates.  All other programs please check your email for program updates.


We will do our best to respond to your inquiry as quickly as possible. Should you not be able to reach someone, please leave a voicemail, and we will return your call. We thank you for your patience during the influx of online activity.
