20160904_190119-corrected-mahmuwd-swan-springer-rodriguez-henderson-jorge-molinaRamapo College seeks out the very best students for it’s Educational Opportunity Fund Program.

Eligible applicants are admitted to the college through the EOF Program. Admits must be highly motivated students generally enrolled in college preparatory programs, maintaining a B- or better academic average, and top half or better class rank.

The EOF Program is also committed to offering community college students the opportunity to continue their studies as they opt to complete a four-year degree. There is special interest in enrolling community college graduates with strong academic records.

First year and transfer applicants must meet academic and financial eligibility requirements for admission to the EOF Program. Academic eligibility requirements vary from program to program and students should ascertain program specific information on academic eligibility requirements. Financial eligibility requirements are the same for all EOF Programs and are based on the size of the household and family income.

First Year Students

Our Associate Director, Ms. Dee Bright-Foreman, is the primary contact person for in-coming first year students. Applicants admitted to the EOF Program must complete a placement test administered by the college. It is required that the placement test is taken prior to enrollment in the Summer Studies Program. The on-line test is called the Accuplacer, and it is an computer based testing instrument. There are several tests that are a part of Accuplacer- reading comprehension test, arithmetic test, elementary algebra test, and an essay. Testing is administered by the college’s Office of Testing and Placement.

A verbal score of 550 or above exempts students from the English placement test. A math score of 560 or above exempts students from the arithmetic placement test, and a 560 or better math score exempts students from the arithmetic and algebra tests. A College Board Advanced Placement English Test score of 3, 4, or 5 exempts students from the English test.

Transfer Credit

Students who transfer a college-level English composition course and a college-level mathematics course that satisfy Ramapo College’s General Education Requirements are exempt from placement testing. Transfers who have not completed their developmental or remedial course work at their prior school should forward their placement test scores to the Office of Testing and Placement.

Academic Eligibility

The decision to offer admission acceptance is based on a number of factors. These include the quality of an applicant’s grades, types of courses taken and their rigor, SAT scores, class rank if available, letters of recommendation, scope and depth of extracurricular and or community involvement, quality of the admission essay, and in some cases the particular field of intended study.

In determining admission the greatest weight is given to a students’ quality of grades. SAT scores have less weight in comparison to grades. Students who are EOF grant eligible, and their grades and other credentials are strong, but the SAT scores do not meet our minimum requirements, can be admitted to our EOF Program. Note: Interviews are sometimes a part of our admissions process.

The admission of transfer applicants is based on meeting minimum academic eligibility requirements. These include an overall GPA and credits earned that must be evident at the time of making application. Spaces are limited and the state EOF grant is awarded based upon the availability of funds.
