The CASC Educational Opportunity Center program serves adults in a seven county area of Eastern Oklahoma and Western Arkansas. The program is funded by the U.S. Department of Education to provide assistance to qualified adults who want to enter or continue in a program of post-secondary education. An important objective of the program is to assist participants in applying for financial aid. The goal of the EOC program is to increase the number of adult participants who enroll in post-secondary education institutions. EOC is funded to serve 1675 participants each program year. CASC Poteau Campus hosts the main office with three satellites offices at Sallisaw, OK, Fort Smith, AR, and Van Buren, AR.
