They must meet with an EOPS counselor for at least two of the three contacts. Additional contacts may be made with an EOPS staff member/peer advisor. Contacts for fall and spring semester must be made at least 4-5 weeks apart. Contacts made two weeks prior to the term count as contacts for the main term.
