EOPS/CARE RECOGNITION EVENT
If you will be graduating in spring 2013 or if you were an honors student for fall 2012, congratulations on your achievement! You are invited to attend our annual EOPS/CARE/CalWORKs Recognition Event being held in your honor on Friday, May 31. An invitation has been sent to your student email account. Please r.s.v.p. as soon as possible.
EOPS CONTACT AVAILABILITY
State budget reductions have severely limited the amount of counseling hours that we can make available to students each semester. This, in turn, has affected the availability of open appointment slots with counselors throughout the semester as they tend to fill up quickly. We understand this creates a burden on students as they attempt to juggle busy schedules and still meet their mandated contact requirements for the EOPS program.
We make every effort to offer enough appointments for all students. This means that we have to offer some appointments as group sessions. These group sessions do count as contacts for the semester.
If you attempt to schedule an appointment and are told that there are no available openings, please continue to check back with us on a regular basis as we will eventually make new appointments available.
Also, in an effort to offer as many appointments as possible, we have implemented a new policy: if you are late for your scheduled appointment one of two things may happen, either you may forfeit that appointment to a waiting student, or we may inform you that your appointment is being converted to a drop-in appointment and it won't count as one of your contacts for the semester.
