Educational Opportunity Programs

The University of Northern Iowa places a high priority on providing quality education to first-generation and low-income students. To fulfill this commitment for all students, the university has established the Office of Educational Opportunity Programs & Special Community Services (EOP/SCS). 

EOP/SCS programs are designed and coordinated specifically to meet our students' educational, social and financial needs. A primary goal for the EOP/SCS staff is to provide supportive services to all project students, thus enhancing the successful completion of the student's college career.
