How Do I Apply to EOP?

Complete the CSU application for undergraduate admission.  You may do so at:  If you mark "Yes" to question 14a on the application, you will automatically be sent an EOP application.  Otherwise, print off a copy of the application at this site, or call our office and we will gladly send you one.  Our phone number is 657-278-2784.

Submit all requested paperwork to Admissions & Records for your admission review.  This may include all official transcript(s), test score report, state residency documents, and so forth.  EOP cannot evaluate your EOP application until your CSU admissions file is complete and the Office of Admissions & Records has made an admission decision.

Complete the EOP application.  At minimum, you must submit the following EOP application forms:

  1. Applicant Information Form
  2. Nomination or Recommendation Form
  3. Autobiographical Statement

Be sure to complete all the sections, especially the financial information on Form 1. If you are applying to more than one CSU campus, you may send a photocopy of your EOP application.  

You are required to include your social security number on the EOP forms by authority contained in Title 5, California Code of Regulations, Section 41201.

Note: EOP at CSU Fullerton is usually closed to admission for the spring term.  If you are applying for the spring term, you are encouraged to contact the office to confirm closure.

The EOP grant is state aid so you must apply for financial aid.  You are required to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  The application is available from high school counselors and college financial aid offices, or you may apply online at: You will be eligible for the largest portion of financial aid if you submit the FAFSA by March 2.  However, if you miss that date you should still apply.

While there is no set deadline for EOP admissions, the earlier you apply to the CSU and EOP the sooner you will receive an admission offer.  EOP accepts applications until all slots are filled, some years as late as the summer just prior to enrollment.
