All admitted students will receive a finance plan 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.
The Financing Plan 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)
- Institutional Awards
- Federal Direct Loans (Subsidized and/or Unsubsidized)
The NJ EOF Grant is posted to a student’s account upon successfully completing the EOF Summer Program.
EOF First Year students can also be awarded an additional scholarship of up to $5,000 a year for completing the EOF Pre-First Year 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 as transfer scholarships are highly competitive.
