Educational Opportunity Program
The Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) at SF State University has improved access and retention of historically underserved (low income, first generation college) students by facilitating their matriculation into SF State 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 Summer Bridge Program is an eight-week non-residential academic program that facilitates the transition from high school to the university. Participants are provided with an opportunity to adjust to the university environment and are introduced to an extensive educational support service network. The program allows participants to formulate a strong sense of belonging and connectedness to EOP and the university.
Summer Bridge participants will have the opportunity to complete the Early Start Program requirements during the eight-week Summer Bridge Program.
After completing the Summer Bridge Program, participants will have developed practical study skills to enhance academic success and a working knowledge of the resources, services, and structure of the university community.
