  • EOF ADMISSION CRITERIA

    Admission to Camden County College is available to all applicants who have graduated from an accredited secondary or preparatory school, present a State Equivalency Certificate, or have attained the age of eighteen years. Initial acceptance into the EOF program focuses on incoming freshman. Camden County Colleges EOF Program is based upon the above criteria, as well as upon evidence that a student:

    1. Meets the financial eligibility requirements as set forth in program regulations and institutional policies;

    2. is, and has been, a legal New Jersey resident for at least twelve consecutive months prior to receiving a grant;

    3. is enrolled full time and matriculated in a degree or certificate program; 4. exhibits potential to succeed in college, although academically under prepared; 5. demonstrates the ability to benefit from the services provided by the EOF

    program at Camden County College; and 6. meets the historical poverty requirements as set forth in the program

    regulations. Students cannot receive an initial EOF award in their last year of study. Priority for an initial award will be given to those who are first time full time students. Financial eligibility is determined by the information submitted on the Federal and State Financial Aid Forms, income documentation, and other agencies (Social Services, high schools, etc.). Academic eligibility is determined from a review of transcripts, GED scores, Basic Skills Placement Test scores and/or SAT/ACT scores. If a student has been an EOF participant at another institution within the State of New Jersey and appears to be sincere about continuing his or her academic pursuits, the student may be admitted as a transfer participant.
