EOF Program Services


Financial Assistance:
Students are eligible to receive a grant up to $1050 per academic year to help cover the cost of tuition, books, and fees.


Academic Advisement:
Students are placed in appropriate courses based on skill levels as determined by the results of the basic skills placement test. Once developmental courses are completed, the student and advisor work together to assure that the student is taking courses appropriate for his/her desired major and/or transfer.

Advisors are assigned to each student accepted into the program. Advisors assist students with academic, financial and other problems that may interfere with the attainment of their educational goals. Advisors also help with career development and the transfer process.


Tutoring:
All students are encouraged to utilize the free tutoring services available for development and content courses in the Tutoring Center.


Transfer Assistance:
Students are assisted in the transfer process by advisors, who help coordinate the transfer of courses and financial aid to the receiving school.
