What is NextUP?

NextUP provides community college students
like you with resources that make a difference. Receive help with books and supplies, transportation, food and emergency housing.

Sometimes the hardest part about getting your college education is steering your way around all the bumps in the road. Most students will face challenges throughout this journey. That’s where NextUP comes in.

NextUP students become EOPS students.
