Educational Opportunity Center

Published or Revised December 07, 2021

Are you an adult who has thought about returning to college or perhaps enrolling in college or workforce training for the first time? Are you at a loss about where to go or how to begin? The Educational Opportunity Center (EOC) has been developed to respond to the increasing educational needs of adults. Advisors are available to provide individuals with help in three basic areas: financial aid, admissions, and career planning.

The EOC is your one-stop center for:

  • Admissions application assistance.
  • Financial aid application assistance.
  • Career planning and goal setting.
  • College/workforce training opportunities.
  • Admissions requirements for college/workforce training.
  • Enrollment in GED classes and completion of GED tests.
  • Fee payment assistance for required entrance tests.

The Educational Opportunity Center provides adults with information about educational and career opportunities. The Center also provides information on admissions requirements to educational programs, including workforce programs, and available financial aid.

EOC advisors assist with the preparation of college admissions and financial aid applications. Advisors also assist program participants to define career goals and plan specific ways to carry out these goals. Advisors provide up-to-date information on available careers, earning potential, and educational requirements. Click here for the online application to get started.
