When EOP was in place at Cal Poly Pomona, there were two separate units, one for Latino students and the other for African American students. Additionally, during this time, Asian and Native American students were integrated into one of these two programs (Chicano EOP or Black EOP) to receive services.
Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) is an alternative admissions program designed for students who are economically and educationally disadvantaged, yet display the desire and potential to succeed in higher education. Only California residents are eligible for the program.
GEAR UP works in partnership with educational and community institutions to provide students and families with one-on-one and group advising, academic and tutoring support, college and career exploration opportunities, skill-building workshops, enrichment programs college visits, and educational field trips.
