The Educational Opportunity Center (EOC) is a federally funded TRIO program that helps adults and high school seniors begin or continue their postsecondary education. EOC offers educational access services to low-income individuals and potential college students. While the majority of EOC’s clients seek financial aid assistance, other services available to participants include academic and career advising, college searches, admissions application assistance, student loan counseling and referrals to additional supportive services. 

EOC services focus primarily on individuals who are low-income and are seeking more education and training.  EOC staff members provide professional assistance tailored to individual needs and circumstances. 

The Educational Opportunity Center can help participants: 

  • Explore career options and programs of study 
  • Decide where to study 
  • Find and apply for student financial aid 
  • Find ways to overcome barriers to education 
  • Solve problems with student loans
