Friday Forum: All About the Educational Opportunity Center
In 2018, Tarrant County's Opportunity Education Center, located on the UTA campus, shut its doors. Now in 2022, It is back thanks to Opportunity Resource Services. But what is the EOC? and how can it help adult learners move on into the next phase of their education?
This overview of the Educational Opportunity Center (EOC) program, operated by Opportunity Resource Services will answer that question. The EOC is a program funded by the U.S. Department of Education that provides counseling and application assistance to any qualified participants interested in pursuing higher education. Higher education can be college, university, a trade school program, or any other training after the completion of high school or the GED. The EOC advisors are here to be higher education advocates. The EOC program provides free individualized academic and career advising, expert financial aid assistance, help for adult learners to complete high school equivalency, and support with enrolling in industry-recognized college and trade programs. Our experienced advisors understand the obstacles adults face when enrolling in college – financial, personal, and family – and help clients create a personalized plan to work through those obstacles to attend school. All EOC services are 100% free and we currently service the Dallas, Johnson, and Tarrant county areas.
Join our presenters: Ikisha Cross, Omar Pulido, and Hannah Davis Sutton as they share information about this much-needed program in North Texas.
As always professional development (Other) will be available for this session. See you at 9:00 am on February 11th.
