About the Program

A Free Educational Opportunity – The one stop to achieving your educational dreams!

The Educational Opportunity Center is a grant program funded by the U.S. Department
of Education. EOC is here to help students apply for admissions, complete financial
forms, and assist with enrollment. We provide information and counseling to qualifying
adults who want to enter or continue an educational program at ANY technical school,
community college, and/or university of their choice. The goal of EOC is to increase
the number of adults who enroll in post-secondary institutions.

An essential objective of EOC is to counsel participants on financial aid options
and to assist in the application process. The goal of EOC is to increase the number
of adult participants who enroll in post-secondary institutions from 11 parishes.
