EOPS Counseling

The Counseling support is the “HEART” of the EOPS program. Our EOPS Counselors are there to help EOPS students deal with any issue that may impact their ability to perform academically. These issues may include personnel, family, crisis, academic, career and transfer issues. Once in the EOPS program, you are assigned your own counselor who you would see for your academic question and educational planning.

In addition to English, we have counselors that speak Spanish and classified staff that speak Spanish, Cantonese, and American Sign Language (ASL).

Additional Resources

Priority Registration

EOPS Students enroll in classes BEFORE the general student population. This means our students get first shot at enrolling in the classes they need, at the time they want, with the teacher they want, at the location they want.

EOPS Book Assisstance

EOPS Students in good standing will receive book assistance funds based on the number of units enrolled in and available funding. All EOPS students have access to our lending library on a first come first serve basis.

All textbooks are purchased through the Sacramento City College Book Store.

If the total book cost exceeds your book stipend, the student will pay the difference. If the student has a balance remaining he or she may use that amount up until the purchasing deadline. All unspent funds after the deadline will return to the program account for later distribution.

If you plan to take 2nd/3rd six-week or 2nd nine -week courses you should also purchase these books before the deadline date. In addition, charge your special order book before the deadline.

Student Survival Kits

EOPS wants to make sure students are ready to learn once they are in class. We provide our students with supplies so they have the proper tools to be successful students.

As funds are available, we hope to give each of our students:

  • A backpack
  • flashdrive
  • pens/pencils/highighter
  • bluebook/scrantrons
  • binder/paper/tabs
