How Do I Qualify?

To be eligible for EOPS, a student must meet all SIX (6) of the eligibility criteria:
  1. Be a California resident.
  2. Qualify for a Board of Governors Waiver (BOGW) A or B. (BOGW C does not qualify.)
  3. Must be enrolled in 12 or more units at LACC. If a student is verified by the Office of Special Services (OSS) as an active participant, the student may be enrolled in 6 units or more at LACC. Summer & Winter terms are subject to state funds availability.
  4. Have completed LESS THAN 69 degree applicable units total from all colleges attended.
  5. Have not earned an AA/AS degree or higher, or the equivalent of a foreign degree.
  6. Be determined educationally disadvantaged.
Educationally Disadvantaged status is determined by providing proof of one (1) of the following:
  • Assessment scores with recommended placement non-degree applicable (NDA) in English and/or Math
  • Current enrollment in remedial English and/or Math
  • Prior enrollment within or outside of the district in LACCD equivalent remedial English and/or Math course(s)
  • Other factors as stated within Title V Guidelines may be used in the event that a student does not qualify into the program.
Once a student has met all six (6) of the eligibility criteria, the student is encouraged to submit an EOPS/CARE application.
