Providing assistance to historically underrepresented students
A Supplemental Instruction Course
EOP/SSS offers a wide range of services which are individually tailored to meet the needs of each student. As a participant in our program, the following services are available to you to help you reach your academic career and personal goals.
Developing a plan for academic success is as unique as each student. The keys to successful planning also vary at each stage of a student's academic career. We'll help you understand university requirements and help you develop an academic plan that will meet your educational, career, and professional goals.
Planning and problem solving go hand-in-hand. If you encounter unexpected challenges, your EOP/SSS advisor will help you understand campus policies and academic performance standards, and help you develop new strategies to overcome the challenges you face.
In coordination with selected faculty and the Dean of Graduate Studies, we offer graduate school workshops and individual advising on the application and admissions processes for graduate and professional schools. We also assist in coordinating transportation to the Forum for Diversity in Graduate Education, which is sponsored by the California State University system each year.
Program staff request midsemester evaluations from faculty for all new students and for students on academic probation. Completed evaluations are reviewed with each individual student. We also monitor your progress each semester and will provide you with guidance in charting your course to graduation for as long as you are enrolled at Humboldt.
EOP/SSS advisors can help you clarify personal and career goals and identify the resources and services available.
As a program student, you qualify for free tutorial assistance. EOP/SSS sponsors individualized tutoring and study groups in courses where a sufficient demand exists among program students. The Tutorial Center also coordinates small-group tutoring in high demand subjects for tutorial services funded through Associated Students (open to all Humboldt State University students).
Learning Center staff can offer you one-on-one and small group assistance to help you develop fundamental skills such as English, reading, math and study strategies. Staff can also offer you assistance with preparing for standardized tests (GWPE, GRE, CBEST, etc.) and with developing subject-specific study strategies and skills. Many of the materials are self-paced and you can work with staff to develop an individual learning plan.
EOP students may also participate in courses and programs designed to develop skills in areas such as Math (ILE Math), college-level reading (Engl 30), English as a Second Language (Engl 31), Botany, Biology, and Chemistry (Supplemental Instruction Courses).
