News & Events

APR  is due Thursday, November 12, 2015.

Dear EOP&S Student, upon acceptance into the EOP&S program, you were informed that we would monitor your academic progress each academic semester.  Every student MUST submit an Academic Progress Report (A.P.R.) to the EOP&S office.  Failure to completed the APR may result in suspension of EOP&S support services for the following semester.

Please begin taking this report to your instructors about one or two weeks before due date.  Keep in mind that submitting the A.P.R. does not count as an appointment.

Very Important:
When you ask your instructor to complete the APR form, please do it at a time when you can both discuss your academic progress.  It is important for you to understand the feedback your instructor will be giving you so you can either improve or maintain your current grade in the course.

If we notice that you are not doing well in any of your classes during the Fall 2015, we will contact you to discuss your progress and options. 

If you need assistance before the APR form is due, please do not hesitate to come in and make an appointment to talk to an academic advisor or counselor as soon as possible. 

Priority Registration is here!

Registration for Spring 2016 is around the corner.  One of the benefits of being an EOP&S student is being able to register before everyone else on campus.  The registration priority for Spring 2016 for EOP&S students begins on Tuesday, November 10th. 


We look forward to hearing from you!

Let us know what you have been up to since graduating by completing our Guest Book page and e-mailing it to Andrea Lopez.  Share your memories, and reconnect with the EOP&S Program.

Symbol of Nickel and Nail


A young man was walking along the street with only a nickel in his pocket, feeling very poor indeed.  He was quite depressed about his situation.  He picked up a couple of nails which he found on the ground, twisted them together, and put them in his pocket.  The nails and the nickel jangled together, making a pleasant noise as the young man continued on his way.  It was almost as if he had more money than before.  He began to feel more hopeful about his situation and his attitude changed enough for him to begin trying to improve his position in life.
