Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS) is a student support program for educationally and economically disadvantaged students funded by the State of California and Siskiyou Joint Community College District. It is designed to benefit students who historically have been underrepresented in higher education and who need both educational and financial assistance to attend college.
Cooperative Agencies Resources for Education (CARE) is a student support program to assist single parents on CalWORKs or TANF to become successful students and eventually find meaningful employment.
CARE accepts applications on an ongoing basis.
