  • The Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) at SJSU is committed to the academic success of our students.  Every semester, (typically in mid October and late March) as part of ongoing academic support for EOP students, we send a mid semester progress report request to all faculty identified as the instructor of a course with enrolled EOP students.
  • Please know that SJSU EOP students sign an EOP Student Agreement that authorizes their instructors to release mid semester grades and other pertinent academic information to EOP, including submission of Progress Reports via GradesFirst.  Further, this program is FERPA protected, approved by the SJSU Registrar’s Office and meet data safety and security requirements.
  • SJSU faculty do not need to create a GradesFirst account in order to be able to submit EOP Student Progress Reports.  You will be emailed a secure link in which to submit your Progress Reports.
  • If you have questions regarding progress reports and submission of those progress reports, please email EOP Academic Advisor
