Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF)
Consistent with the New Jersey Office of the Secretary of Higher Education (OSHE)/Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF), Georgian Court University is committed to aligning educational opportunities to students who meet the EOF academic and financial eligibility criteria. The university provides these students with a comprehensive liberal arts education in the Roman Catholic tradition.
The EOF program also offers academic and educational advisement, tutoring, leadership development initiatives, and a financial aid supplemental grant—all designed to promote persistence through degree completion and the pursuit of their future careers.
The EOF program at Georgian Court University’s vision is to provide educational access and opportunity to promising New Jersey residents from under represented populations throughout the State of New Jersey. It is also our commitment to offer support services aimed at improving students’ personal, social, professional, and academic success throughout their higher education journey.
