Steps for Success

Your EOPS Educational Plan

What is an EOPS Educational Plan?

An educational plan is an outline of a student's course of study, which will eventually lead to a determined academic goal.

Who does the Educational Plan?

You develop an individualized educational plan along with the assistance and guidance of an EOPS counselor.

The plan may include the following information:

  • Academic goal(s)

  • A list of courses needed to reach your goal(s)

  • A list of courses that you have already completed

Why is an Educational Plan important?

Once you have a clear understanding of the requirements that are necessary to fulfill your educational goal(s), then you will be able to plan accordingly during your enrollment at Foothill College.

How can an Educational Plan help you?

It will facilitate your registration process as you become aware of the required courses and any options you may have. Through carefully planning, you will be in control of the decision making process. Knowing your needs will help you in seeking out the necessary assistance you may need

When should the Educational Plan be done?

After you are EOPS eligible, you must schedule an appointment with the EOPS counselor for assistance with your educational plan. The counseling appointment must be established at least once per term and a thorough discussion pertaining to your educational plan will be included.
