In order to stay in good standing with the EOF Program and to continue to receive funding, EOF students must adhere to the following guidelines and take some responsibilities.
Failure to adhere to these guidelines that have been set forth by the State of New Jersey can result in loss of EOF grant award.

Critical Guidelines

  • The EOF Grant is not an entitlement program. In addition, the State has mandated and funded a core of services to ensure students’ success in college. Accepted applicants will sign and adhere to an EOF Student Contract agreeing to participate in the guidelines of the EOF Grant.
  • All students must maintain good academic standing in accordance with BCC regulations. Any student who participates in the EOF program must maintain a satisfactory academic standing as outlined in the Catalog/Academic regulations.
  •  All EOF students have an “EOF Hold” on their record which prevents them from registering until the hold is removed by their counselor. This helps insure that you are taking the right courses at the right time and will help you complete your academic and career goals in a timely manner.
  • Ongoing student/counselor contact is an important element of the EOF program.
  • Once accepted into the EOF program all students must meet with their assigned counselor before registering for each semester.
  • Students who fall below a grade of “C” in any course at the time of progress reports will be required to attend weekly tutoring in that subject through the remainder of the semester.
  • Each semester all EOF students are required to attend mandatory EOF Workshops.

EOF Student Responsibilities

  • All students must meet with their assigned counselor a minimum of once a month.
  • Students must advise the EOF Department of any changes in status from full time to part time in order to avoid complications in their financial aid.
  • It is ultimately the student’s responsibility to renew all financial aid forms by the appropriate deadlines.
  • Students are responsible for reading and responding appropriately to all correspondence (e.g., letters, notices, tests, emails…)  from the EOF and Financial Aid Departments.
