PRE-FRESHMEN SUMMER PROGRAM FUNDING
Every entering freshmen class must attend the Pre-Freshman Summer Studies Program. This 6-week program allows for incoming freshmen to earn up to eight college credits, live on campus and begin their college career before the start of the fall semester. All costs of attending the Pre-Freshmen Summer Program are covered by the EOF Program, including tuition, fees, room, board and books.
EOF FRESHMEN SCHOLARSHIP PACKAGE
(FOR QUALIFIED EOF FRESHMEN)
Students that successfully complete the EOF Pre-Freshman Summer Studies Program with a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or greater will be awarded a funding package of up to $20,000 over four years provided they meet the eligibility requirements. The first year utilizes a combination of federal and state grants, a subsidized loan with a locked-in interest rate and institutional funding. Students that continue to meet the eligibility requirements each year will receive $5,000 per year in an institutional grant scholarship toward their tuition for the sophomore, junior and senior years, which when combined with other federal and state grants will reduce the amount of funding needed to cover the cost of attendance.
ADDITIONAL SCHOLARSHIPS FOR CONTINUING EOF STUDENTS
Each year the Ramapo College Foundation provides more than 400 scholarships that are funded by donations from private donors, businesses, and charitable foundations. These scholarships fall into two categories:
- General Scholarships that students can apply for and are selected based on their application and essay as well as adherence to individual scholarship criteria
- Nominated Scholarships wehre faculty members nominate students to the convening group and Deans for selection.

Our EOF Program takes special interest in helping students pursue experiential opportunities such as Study Abroad, National Student Exchange or domestic and international cooperative education programs as well as assisting those Ramapo EOF students who want to take courses during the summer session.
Students can also apply for awards which cover courses/career related activities including professional educational events, conferences, or enrollment fees as well as graduate school related fees such as application fees, entrance exam and test prep course fees.
