OMA&D Academic Counseling Services

About EOP

The Educational Opportunity Program, located in Advising Counseling Services, is a division of the Office of Minority Affairs & Diversity.

The Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) promotes academic success and graduation for under-represented ethnic minority, economically disadvantaged, and first-generation college students at the University of Washington.

EOP academic counselors are generalists, trained to successfully steward students through the selection and scheduling of classes, exploration of possible majors, and development of career goals. The EOP team also assists students with financial aid, housing, personal matters, and a host of additional supportive services.


We create pathways for diverse populations to access postsecondary opportunities, nurture and support their academic success, and cultivate a campus climate that enriches the educational experience for all.


We provide holistic advocacy and support to historically and currently marginalized, underrepresented, economically disadvantaged and first generation students to ensure their academic, personal, and professional growth and achievement.
