Educational Opportunity Program (EOP)
EOP provides a community, support services, and a small grant for eligible students during their undergraduate education at SJSU. All students who qualify as a California Resident or AB 540 student from an educationally disadvantaged and low income background are encouraged to apply by submitting a completed EOP Application through calstate.edu/apply with their admission application.
EOPS at the Community College
All incoming transfer students from the California Community College system who wish to join EOP at San José State must submit a complete EOP application and follow the same procedures as all other applicants, even if they were a prior EOPS student. The EOPS status from community college does not transfer over, as EOP and EOPS are two different programs.
The Guardian Scholars Program provides holistic support services for former and current foster youth, wards of the court, unaccompanied homeless youth, and youth under legal guardianship. The program assists students in navigating the San José State University (SJSU) system through access to key campus, community, and financial resources, such as: book vouchers, locating year-round housing, and scholarships.
