Educational Opportunity Center

The Educational Opportunity Center (EOC) provides counseling and information on college admissions to qualified adults who want to enter or continue a program of postsecondary education. An important objective of EOC is to counsel participants on financial aid options and to assist in the application process. The goal of EOC is to increase the number of adult participants who enroll in postsecondary education institutions. The overall mission of EOC is to serve 5,097 participants living in thirteen North Alabama counties by increasing the enrollment and retention of the target area’s low-income, first-generation adults in programs of postsecondary studies, and to improve the target area’s high school persistence and GED acquisition rate.
