To be eligible for an EOF grant, an applicant must satisfy the following criteria:

Educational Status
Must be a enrolled at CCM as a degree/certificate seeking student registered as a first-time full time student (12 credit minimum per semester.) Continuing students will be placed on a waiting list and may be admitted to the program if any slots are available. Students needing 24 credits or less to graduate are generally not eligible for EOF.

Residency
An applicant must be a legal resident of New Jersey for at least 12 months prior to receiving an EOF grant. (Legal New Jersey residence means that he/she does not live in New Jersey only for the purpose of obtaining an education. An applicant whose parents or guardians are not legal residents of New Jersey is presumed to be in the state for the temporary purpose of obtaining an education.)

Financial
Must have a family income that falls within the income criteria established by the state of NJ Higher Education’s EOF home page.
