The ultimate purpose of the Educational Opportunity Center is to provide information regarding financial and academic assistance available for individuals who desire to pursue a program of postsecondary education and to provide assistance to individuals in applying for admission to institutions that offer programs of postsecondary education, including assistance in preparing necessary applications for use by admissions and financial aid officers.
A Statement from the Director
The New Millennium warrants the need for all citizens to have full access to opportunity for higher education. For out growing diversity to sustain and advance as a competitive democracy in the New Millennium, we must provide a quality education for all segments of our community. As you journey through our site, you will find information about our Program, Admissions Information, Financial Aid, and Academic Advising, and much more.
Since our inception in 1994, we have discovered that the adult population brings many life issues to the educational arena that must be addressed prior to their educational pursuit. As a program, our task is to assist the non-traditional students to meet their needs and address their diverse, yet important concerns.
Since the program's commencement, CCEOC has successfully collaborated with over thirty (30) organizations, including colleges, community agencies, and adult educational programs throughout three county areas. Our program has made significant progress in reaching out to the adult population. To date, we have served over seven thousand (7000) adults in their pursuit of higher education. Of these numbers, well over 70% has moved on to two-year college, four-year college and vocational training. We are proud of their accomplishment and are honored to play a role in their lives.
I personally invited you to contact us and learn more about how our program can benefit you.
