Welcome to the Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS) providing services to students at the Ridgecrest/IWV, Kern River Valley (KRV), East Kern: Tehachapi, and Eastern Sierra (ESCC) Bishop and Mammoth Lakes campuses. The Cerro Coso Community College EOPS Program was developed in 1975 to give community people who have financial and academic need an opportunity to obtain their dreams. EOPS assists and aids in meeting the needs of all eligible students with grants and services such as: placement in math and English, counseling, peer counseling, career development, academic monitoring, priority registration, transportation, and textbook vouchers.
Complete and submit application by faxing to (760) 384-6320 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or turn in to your local campus (Ridgecrest/IWV, KRV, Tehachapi, and ESCC Bishop and Mammoth Lakes ).
ACCESS Programs will receive and review EOPS applications beginning the first day of priority registration and closing 1 week prior to the start of the semester.
Please note: If you were foster youth at the age of 16 or later, you may qualify for additional benefits. Contact the ACCESS Office at 760-384-6250 or email@example.com.
