Reapplying to the program: EOPS students in good standing will be considered continuing EOPS students and do not need to reapply each semester, unless they do not register for one full semester. This does not apply to short sessions. If a student drops out of school for one full semester after being accepted into EOPS due to extenuating circumstances and leaves the program in good standing, he/she can reapply to the program if all the eligibility criteria are met at the time of application. If, however, the EOPS student was exited from the program for non-compliance, the student may not re-apply.

Continued eligibility requires adherence to the EOPS mutual responsibility contract.
