College Search Tools

Below are free online tools that can be very helpful. It takes time and thoughtful consideration to make appropriate choices. Be sure to look up the “admitted student profile” for each college so that you will know how you compare to the students who were admitted last year. But don’t let that be too discouraging – remember, the numbers for GPA and SAT / ACT are averages. Make sure you have met the course requirements before applying.

Good luck!   Apply wisely and broadly!

EOP: CSU Education Opportunity Propgram

EOP is designed to improve access and retention of historically low-income and educationally disadvantaged students. EOP students have the potential and demonstrated motivation to perform satisfactorily at a CSU, but they have not been able to realize their potential because of their economic or educational background. The program provides admission and academic assistance to EOP-eligible undergraduate students. In many cases, the program offers financial assistance to eligible students. Campuses tailor their programs to accommodate the needs of their student population.
