EOPS/CARE Updates

Summer 2022 EOPS/CARE Book Voucher Program

Eligible students who have completed an Information Session or Orientation will be contacted via their Saddleback College email on their approval to use the textbook voucher.  

 EOPS will provide the textbook voucher to those students who are registered; New students must register in 4 units (or approved unit load) for the summer semester. The amount of the Book vouchers is contingent on the student's financial need and can only be used to cover the cost of required textbooks.

Summer 2022 Counseling Contacts

Counselors are available to support and guide our students throughout the summer semester. Counselors are available to conduct or review students' career assessments and to develop or update the student's academic plan (MAP). Students can also meet with Counselors to discuss program student support services such as tutoring, career planning, financial resources, and workshops to improve their success. Further, Counselors and students work together to coordinate and prepare to register for the upcoming semester.
