The Educational Opportunity Program designs, administers, and supports programs that deliver access and retention services to historically low income and educationally disadvantaged students. An EOP student has the potential to perform satisfactorily in the CSU but has not been able to realize this potential because of economic or educational background. The program provides admission, academic, and financial assistance to EOP-eligible undergraduate students.

Only historically low-income, educationally disadvantaged students who need admission assistance and support services to succeed in college are eligible to apply to EOP. They must demonstrate academic potential, motivation to succeed, and meet the income criteria.
