CSUN EOP Admissions

What is CSUN EOP?

The Educational Opportunity Programs (EOP) at California State University, Northridge designs, administers, and supports programs that deliver access and retention services to CSUN students. EOP provides services to historically low-income, educationally disadvantaged, first-generation college students; a population that not only reflects the diversity of CSUN’s feeder communities but also the diversity of the University itself.

EOP Provides:

• Assistance in completing CSU Mentor & EOP applications for prospective applicants
• Transitional experience (for first time freshmen and first time transfer students) 
• Mentoring
• Academic support services
• Holistic advising
• Student engagement
• Financial support: EOP Grant (if eligible)

Furthermore, academic support services are provided to all students through the Student Services Center/EOP Satellite office located in each academic college and for undecided students in the Advising Resource Center/EOP.


Who May Apply:

Students who demonstrate academic potential and motivation, meet the EOP income guidelines and be California residents or qualify for an AB 540 nonresident tuition exemption. A limited number of students who may not be routinely eligible (but who have demonstrated they have the motivation and potential to matriculate and graduate) are granted exceptional admission consideration.
