EOPS/CARE at Folsom Lake College exists to extend the opportunity of attending higher education to those from educationally and economically disadvantaged backgrounds. We not only strive to increase access to college, but to commit resources to the retention of these underrepresented groups. Our staff is here to assist in any way possible and we are committed to working with each student so that they can reach their educational, career and life goals.
EOPS provides support services to students meeting specific educational and economic criteria, as well as students from underrepresented groups. Our services include counseling and advising, early registration, book vouchers, workshops, and transfer assistance.
CARE provides services in addition to those offered by EOPS to students who are single parents and receiving county aid from TANF. These services include supply vouchers, monthly transportation assistance, and in-depth financial aid advising.
