​​EOP​S/CARE/NextUp

EOPS/​CARE/NextUp is a cluster of academic support programs that assist students disadvantaged by language, social, economic, and educational circumstances. The programs primarily serve students from low-income backgrounds, first-generation, single parents, and former foster youth. Comprehensive academic and support services are provided to increase students' retention, graduation, and transfer to four-year colleges and universities.
