EOPS/CARE

EOPS/CARE

Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS) is a college success, counseling support program for low income and educationally disadvantaged students. EOPS students receive assistance and support with their college education. Special attention is given to identify, plan, develop and achieve the academic, career and personal goals of our students. The EOPS Counseling Faculty assists students with various issues relating to their academic, career and personal development. EOPS Counselors understand that students may be unfamiliar with the college environment and culture; and therefore, they are readily available to guide you during your academic journey at LATTC. They assist students with the registration procedures, and guide students with class selections, generate a Student Educational Plan (SEP) and acquaint students to the resources available on campus. They also work with students on a personal level as they know that students may encounter many life obstacles and challenges that can interfere with their pursuit toward achieving their academic goals.
