Educational Opportunity & Pathway Programs
Welcome! The Educational Opportunity & Pathway Programs (EOPP) at San Francisco State University have 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 programs provide comprehensive and holistic services designed to provide participants with outreach, admissions, academic, financial, and mental health support. Participants receive on-going advising, tutoring, peer mentoring, developmental workshops, and a state grant designed to increase retention and graduation rates.
