The Educational Opportunity Center (EOC) is the newest addition to the many services provided by AAP. Created by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education in 1997, EOC provides information and assistance to low-income, first-generation college-bound citizens in Prince George's county age 19 and older to gain admission and obtain financial aid for post-secondary education enrollment.

EOC has seen substantial growth over the last decade and now assists more than 1,000 adults per year in:

  • Enrollment or re-enrollment in post secondary education.

  • Guidance and counseling in the post-secondary admissions process.

  • Academic, personal, and career counseling.

  • Assistance with completing the FAFSA application and securing financial aid for students through various resources.

  • Referral to community agencies to complete GED process.

The EOC main office is located in Riverdale and maintains additional office space and staff on campus within the AAP facility.
