All admitted students will receive a financial aid award letter from Ramapo College as long as the student has submitted a FAFSA or NJ Alternative Financial Aid Application (NJAFAA). FAFSA applicants must include their Social Security Number on their application for admission to match their application to their FAFSA account. NJ Dreamers who use the NJAFAA must include their Taxpayer ID (if they have received one) on the application for admission to match their application to their NJAFAA. If NJ Dreamers do not have a Taxpayer ID, their application will be matched by other information found on both the NJAFA and Admissions applications.
Financial Aid Award Letters for EOF students can include some or all of the following:
- Federal Pell Grant
- Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)
- Federal Work Study
- NJ Tuition Aid Grant (TAG)
- NJ EOF Grant
- Federal Direct Loans (Subsidized and/or Unsubsidized)
EOF Freshmen can also be awarded an additional scholarship of $5,000 a year for completing the EOF Freshman Summer Program with a 2.5 GPA or higher. This award would post upon successful completion of the EOF Summer Program and may not show on the Financial Aid Award Letter.
EOF Transfer students who transfer to Ramapo with an Associate degree from a NJ Community College for the Fall semester with a 3.5 GPA or higher are also reviewed for a $2,000 transfer scholarship. Priority deadline for Transfer scholarships is March 1.
