EOF First Year Ramapo College Grant Financial Package (for Qualified First Year EOF Students )
The EOF financial aid package utilizes a combination of federal and state grants, a subsidized federal student loan with a locked-in interest rate and institutional funding. First Year students who successfully complete the EOF Pre-First Year Summer Studies Program with a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or greater will be awarded an institutional grant of up to $5,000, provided they meet the eligibility requirements.
Students who continue to meet the eligibility requirements each year will receive up to $5,000 per year toward their cost of attendance for the sophomore, junior and senior years, totaling up to $20,000 in institutional aid. When combined with other federal and state grants, the EOF financial aid package will reduce the amount of out of pocket cost of attendance each year.
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:
