EOP (Educational Opportunity & Pathway Programs)

Welcome! For over 50 years, the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) at San Francisco 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.

The Educational Opportunity & Pathway Programs (EOPP) provide comprehensive and holistic services designed to provide participants with outreach, admissions, academic, and financial support. Participants receive on-going advising, tutoring, peer mentoring, and developmental workshops designed to increase retention and graduation rates. 

Eligible participants are encouraged to apply to additional EOPP programs such as:

Summer Bridge - a program that helps participants build community and smoothly transition into the university.

Guardian Scholars Program - a comprehensive program that supports former foster care youth.

Student Support Services - a federally funded TRIO program that provides intensive academic support for participants in their first two years of college.
