Stop by the Career Center to learn more about SBCC programs such as: TAP, STEM, EOPS, Running Start and CARE on Wednesday, March 15th from 11:24am-1:24pm.

TAP Program
Transfer Achievement Program (TAP) is a comprehensive support program designed to assist under-represented students who are planning to transfer to a four-year college or university. Our goal is to facilitate a smooth transition from SBCC to a four-year institution.

STEM Program
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. The STEM Transfer Program’s priority is to assist Hispanic and/or low income students in creating and following a streamlined educational plan that ensures transfer to a four-year institution in a STEM area. The STEM Transfer Program (STP) at Santa Barbara City College is funded by the U.S. Department of Education Hispanic-Serving Institutions Program.

EOPS Programs
The Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS) is a state-funded support program designed to provide academic support, financial assistance and encouragement for eligible, financially disadvantaged, and academically underprepared students. The goal of the program is to help eligible students meet their educational objectives, whether they seek occupational certificates, associate degrees, or transfer to four-year institutions

Running Start Program
Running Start is a 6-week summer bridge program for local high school students completing the 12th grade. Running Start provides services to students who may be financially and/or academically underprepared and who may not assess into college-level Math and English. There are 65 spots available each summer and students must go through an interview process to be selected.

CARE Program
As a supplemental component, EOPS runs a state-funded program to provide additional support for SBCC’s single parent population. The Cooperative Agencies Resources for Education (CARE) program serves low-income single parent students who receive cash aid from CalWORKs. In addition, CARE provides educational support services designed for the academically underprepared. Financial assistance and childcare may be awarded as a means of strengthening the retention, persistence, graduation, and transfer rates of these individuals. Students participating in CARE may choose to pursue vocational certificate or license, associate degree, or transfer to four-year universities
