+ Information about Fall 2014 Application:
The EOPS/CARE program has changed its application procedures. The Fall 2014 EOPS Application will be available online only starting on Monday, June 02, 2014.
You must have completed an application to OCC and an application for the B.O.G.W. fee waiver (completing the FAFSA includes the B.O.G.W.). There are a limited number of spaces available in EOPS. Applications will be reviewed on first come first serve basis.
However, there are specific qualifications that allow students to apply to EOPS any time during the semester, such as CalWORKs recipients, DSPS, current or former Foster Youth, Veterans, or CARE (If you are 18 years of age or older, designated as single head of household, with at least one child under the age of 14, and are receiving CalWORKs/TANF). Please stop by the EOPS office for more information.
*Please note that completing an application does not guarantee acceptance into the program. Eligibility requirements mandated by Title 5 Regulations determine acceptance. Please call the EOPS office if you have any questions (714) 432-5817.

+ New “NO SHOW” Policy
If you have two “No Show’s” in one semester in EOPS at Orange Coast College, you will no longer be eligible for EOPS or its services.

* A “No Show” is defined as missing an appointment for Intake or a counseling appointment with an EOPS counselor, without proper notification prior to that appointment.
+ NEW BUS PASS POLICY! Due to reported bus pass abuses, EOPS has a new policy for bus passes. To renew a bus pass, all EOPS students must return their previously expired bus pass to the EOPS office. Failure to do so will result in loss of bus pass services.
Thank you,
