The Educational Opportunity Program continues to take measures to maintain the health of our University community. Consistent with the California Department of Public Health recommendations, we are promoting social distancing and have made changes to our services.

EOP counseling to continue by telephone, email and Zoom

EOP advising services will take place in non-face-to-face environments, including telephone, email, and Zoom.  We are not currently offering in-person appointments.

To make an appointment or seek more immediate assistance, contact our office or email your EOP counselor directly.

You can find your counselor's contact information on Meet the Staff.

We will keep you updated on any changes. If you have any questions, please call (323)343-4367 (leave a message) or email

Spring 2020 workshops canceled

All EOP Spring 2020 Workshops have been canceled in consideration of the evolving coronavirus situation.

Check back for updates after May 31.


The Educational Opportunity Program helps undergraduate students from California overcome social and economic barriers to attaining a higher education.

We work closely with students who have the potential for academic success, but have struggled in school because of economic or personal challenges.


EOP students are partnered with a counselor who will coach and support them throughout their time at Cal State LA. EOP counselors can help with questions concerning class registration, financial aid, life skills or any other matter that is important to students.


Our Supplemental Instruction workshops and Academic Success workshops provide rigorous academic support to keep EOP students on track to graduate.
