EOPS END-OF-SEMESTER SURVEY
Each semester we ask EOPS/CARE students to complete a short survey to provide feedback on how they are being served by the EOPS/CARE program. Please take a moment to provide your feedback by visiting the link below:
SPRING 2014 GRADUATION & HONORS RECOGNITION
If you will be graduating this spring (or graduated last fall), congratulations! As a graduating EOPS student you are entitled to a couple of perks. You are entitled to receive a cap and gown complimentary of the EOPS program to wear during commencement. Please contact the office to sign up for your cap and gown. Additionally, you are invited to attend our yearly recognition event. Please check your student email regularly as we will be sending out an official invitation shortly.
Honors students for fall 2013 are also welcome to attend our annual recognition event. Your invitation will also come via your student email account.
The EOPS Office will be open during the summer. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer book awards this summer. However, we will be loaning books to students. Just bring your syllabus into the office and you will be able to borrow up to two books from the EOPS Loan Library and another two books from the CARE Loan Library (if you are a CARE student).
Also, while it is not mandatory, we invite you to come in for an appointment if you are taking summer classes. And remember that summer is a great time to prepare for the fall semester.
The primary means of communication between Harbor College (including the EOPS/CARE program) and students is via your student email account. Please make sure that you are checking this email account on a regular basis so you don't miss important information.

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.
