The application process varies between schools.
How do I Apply for EOF?
1. Apply to a participating New Jersey college or university
Students must apply and be accepted to a New Jersey college or university that participates in the EOF program.
2. File a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)
Every student who wants to apply for the EOF grant must file a FAFSA. The FAFSA is available through high schools, colleges or by calling the toll-free hotline number at HESAA (Higher Education Student Assistant Authority)
1-800-792-8670. The FAFSA is also available online at www.fafsa.ed.gov.
3. Contact the EOF director
There is an EOF campus director at every college and university participating in the EOF program and each college/university has its own specific criteria for EOF admission and program participation. Students must contact the EOF director at the institution they wish to attend for specific admissions information and requirements for participation in the EOF program.
WHS Guidance Tip: Apply early. The earlier you apply, the better chances for you to get accepted.
