What is the Expanded Options Program?

PCC partners with high schools to provide students with the opportunity to earn college and high school credits at the same time.

The Expanded Options Program (EOP) provides high school juniors and seniors with more ways to complete their education. In EOP, students earn both high school and college credits by attending a community college.

If accepted into the program, the student’s sponsoring high school will cover tuition and fees.

  • Current high school junior or senior
  • Enrolled in a participating school district
