Exiting from the Pathway Program
Students matriculating to Rowan University through the Pathway Program must successfully complete the IELP Program (through level 5) in order to continue their studies at Rowan University.
Successful completion of the IELP is determined by the following:

  • A minimum GPA of 2.5 while in the Pathway Program
  • Minimum score on the Pathway Program language proficiency test
  • Placement into the university’s first year writing program as determined by the evaluation of the student’s academic writing portfolio by IELP and Writing Arts faculty
  • Adherence to the IELP and university attendance policy
  • Adherence to the university academic integrity policy

Matriculated Permanent Residents/Citizens and Financial Aid
Permanent Residents and Citizens who are eligible for financial aid must take a minimum of 12 credits to remain in full-time status and receive financial aid (9 credits in IELP and 3 or more credits of regular university classes).

 Spring Admission for EOF Eligible Pathway Students
A major element of the EOF program that is used to prepare initial EOF students for the academic and social demands of college life is the EOF summer program. Currently, initial EOF students who complete the EOF summer program successfully become eligible for university enrollment during the fall semester. For those IELP students whose proficiency level does not allow them to matriculate in the fall semester, the EOF program at Rowan at Camden recognizes the IELP as a comparable program to the summer EOF program.  As such, eligible students who have participated in at least one semester in the IELP, may matriculate in the spring semester.
