What is the Educational Opportunity Center?

The Educational Opportunity Center (EOC) is a federal grant program that is funded by the U.S. Department of Education. The purpose of the EOC program is to provide information regarding financial and academic assistance available to individuals who desire to pursue a program of postsecondary education; 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; and provide information regarding financial and economic literacy to participants.

Our Purpose

The Educational Opportunity Center at Texas Southern University is committed to helping people begin or continue their education.The goal of the EOC program is to increase the number of adult participants who enroll in postsecondary education institutions.

We provide FREE educational, career, and college financial aid counseling to eligible adults who reside in Austin, Brazoria, Chambers, Colorado, Fort Bend, Galveston, Harris, Liberty, Matagorda, Montgomery, Walker, Waller, and Wharton counties to help them attend any school of their choice.

We do not provide funding, however, we can help them apply for available funds (federal, state, and private) as well as provide referrals, and other resources to further their educational endeavors.

The Educational Opportunity Center at Texas Southern University is only one of 126 EOC programs throughout the United States.
