First Contact


Frosh and Transfer First Contact was held in May and June 2017 for new Fall 2017 students.


Welcome New EOP Students!  

Congratulations! EOP is committed to providing you with support services to help you achieve your personal and academic goals in preparation for success beyond the undergraduate degree.  All new EOP students are required to attend the EOP First Contact Program.  

What is First Contact?

You can think of First Contact as an orientation designed specifically for EOP specifically. Here you will learn everything you need to know about the program so that you are prepared once the school year starts. It's also an opportunity for you to get acquainted with our staff and ask any questions you need to ease your transition to SJSU.

What do I need to do?

In order to remain in EOP, you must complete the following:

1. EOP First Contact (FC)
