Educational Opportunity Center
College admissions and financial aid services for people who need help getting in to college
Mercer University Educational Opportunity Center has helped thousands of adults and high school students go to college since the 1980's. We know what adults and high school students are looking for in a college education--and we are leading the way to college access, enhanced employment opportunities and personal growth and development.
