The Educational Opportunity Program’s counseling services and programming can help alleviate transfer students anxiety about transitioning into a new environment as well as enhance continuing students’ abilities to have a successful tenure at UCSB. To achieve these goals, EOP helps stimulate academic and personal success among transfer/re-entry, non-traditional, veterans and continuing students by engaging them in interactive and community building activities. EOP’s motivates transfer students toward, and assists them in preparing for matriculation into graduate or professional school and/or the job market.

EOP Mentors are available for one-on-one peer advising and can help you plan your academic and career goals. The EOP Mentors also provide information and workshops on: time management and study tips, professional and graduate school preparation, career exploration, and personal wellness. In addition, with the help of our counselors dedicated to transfer student services, the EOP Mentors provide and facilitate social events and programs throughout the academic year through which transfer students have the opportunity to meet each other.
