Educational Opportunity Center

TRIO Programs (TRIO)


The objective of the EOC is to help adults obtain a high school equivalency and/or a college degree. Many people either stopped out of college or high school before obtaining a diploma or a degree, or who never started college, or often think about completing a degree. Most people "stop out" of college or high school or postpone college for one of the following reasons:

  • Need to work to support a family; 

  • Become a parent;

  • Family emergency or care for a relative;

  • Lost interest in school;

  • Other financial reasons;
