Educational Opportunity Program
The Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) at San Francisco State University improves access and retention of historically underserved (low income, first-generation college) students by facilitating their matriculation into the University and by providing a support system for their success. EOP is a comprehensive program designed to provide students with outreach, admissions, academic, and financial support. Students receive on-going advising, tutoring, mentoring, and workshops designed to increase retention and graduation rates.
California residents and eligible AB540 students who meet the income eligibility index and are first-generation college students can apply for EOP during the fall admissions cycle.
EOP Summer Bridge
The EOP Summer Bridge Program is a four-day residential program that supports the transition of first-time freshmen and transfer students to San Francisco State. Participants are provided with an opportunity to familiarize themselves with the campus, learn about a variety of University resources, and build community with other EOP students and staff. The program allows participants to formulate a strong sense of belonging and connectedness to EOP and the University.
During the Summer Bridge Program, participants develop practical study skills to enhance academic success and a working knowledge of the resources, services, and structure of the University community.
