EOP First Contact



First Contact is a free, mandatory orientation organized by the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP). It is designed for all newly admitted SDSU/EOP students (first-time freshmen and transfer students) and should not be confused with San Diego State University’s (SDSU) New Student Orientation, which is designed to reach all new, incoming SDSU students. For more information on SDSU's New Student Orientation visit: www.sdsu.edu/orientation


At First Contact students will learn more about EOP's programs, services, and benefits. They will also have the opportunity to meet the staff. In addition, incoming students will meet their EOP Counselors in a special session. At this session Counselors discuss program policies and procedures, expectations and additional services, which include:


  • Academic advising
  • Personal counseling
  • Free tutorial assistance
  • Campus resources
  • Testing
  • Graduation and degree requirements

During First Contact students review and sign the EOP Student-Program Agreement, which highlights EOP services, policies and procedures, as well as expectations for student participation, all of which help to ensure academic success.

Our staff will do their best to schedule your first First Contact date selection. Given the large volume of new students, please remain open to an alternate date. Check your email regularly.





Please register early. Each registration date will close five working days prior to the event, or when registration reaches capacity.
