Prospective Students

Program Overview:

Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF)

Through this alternative admissions program, Rowan admits students who otherwise might be shut out of a college education because of their lack of funds and limited academic preparation. In addition to being New Jersey residents who meet certain academic and financial requirements specified by the Admissions and EOF/MAP Office, EOF applicants must demonstrate motivation, determination and the potential to succeed at the university level.

Maximizing Academic Potential Program (MAP)

Admission into the MAP program is based on the evaluation of a Rowan University application, secondary school achievement, recommendations and assessments of their motivation to succeed through an individual interview. New Jersey residency and financial income is not a requirement for MAP.

Students admitted under the EOF/MAP program are required to attend the Pre-College Institute, (PCI) summer enrichment program. Once accepted into the program, EOF and MAP students must successfully complete PCI to be admitted to the University in the Fall semester. Upon successful completion of PCI, students will have access to a support system that is specially tailored to meet their needs, offering intensive counseling, supplemental instruction, tutoring and workshops throughout the duration of their academic career at Rowan.
