Student Responsibilities

All EOPS and CARE students must follow our Student Responsibility Contract to participate in the program:

  • Orientation: Attend a one time, mandatory new student orientation.
  • Academic Counseling: Two counselor contacts are required for each semester.
  • Education Plan: Complete and maintain a current four semester educational plan.
  • Midterm Progress Report: This form is sent to all EOPS/CARE students during mid-semester. Instructors need to complete the form. When completed, submit to the EOPS office.
  • Priority Registration: For each semester, EOPS/CARE students are given a priority registration day.
Program Limits:

Students who do not meet the responsibilities every semester will be placed on probation or be withdrawn from the program. 
Once a student completes 70 degree applicable units or 6 consecutive semesters, they are no longer eligible for EOPS/CARE services. Exceptions may apply for students enrolled in high unit majors, ex: RN, LVN (See the EOPS office for a full list of high unit majors.
