For more than 48 years, the College Board’s Educational Opportunity Center (EOC), a nonprofit, has been serving the educational needs of Washington, DC residents, providing low-income, first-generation students with the free information, guidance, and counseling they need to take full advantage of educational opportunities. Federally funded by the U.S. Department of Education, the free program and its staff are committed to providing high-quality resources and counseling to the greater Southwest community and the District at large, regularly meeting with students at the EOC home office near DuPont Circle and at partner locations around the city.
Each year, the EOC delivers aid to thousands of students, offering admissions and career counseling, assistance with financial aid and college applications, and scholarship and grant resources. The counselors are also available to present workshops covering a variety of topics including financial aid, college survival skills, loan default, debt management, and more. Any resident of the District of Columbia is eligible to use the EOC’s free resources.
The EOC is located at 1919 M St. NW, Suite 300, Washington, DC 20036. If you are a resident of Southwest or Navy Yard who wishes to gain access to financial aid, career information, or educational programs in order to reach your full potential, please call the EOC at 202-741-4730.
