About EAOP

The Early Academic Outreach Program (EAOP) is a state-wide college preparatory program sponsored by the University of California. UCSB EAOP currently serves students from select schools in Santa Barbara, Ventura, and Kern Counties.


EAOP is the University of California’s largest academic preparation program. EAOP helps students at undeserved schools prepare for college and the workforce, complete all UC/CSU admission requirements, and apply for college and financial aid.


EAOP will strengthen California’s education system in ways that will promote a vibrant economy by building a highly skilled and creative workforce.


EAOP will increase the number of students who have the opportunity to achieve a post-secondary education.
