Admission to the EOF Program


Consideration for the EOF program is given only to applicants who submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), an application for admission to CCM, and an application to the EOF Program.

Application Process

  • Complete the CCM admission application process. This includes an application fee and a basic skills test.
  • Complete the EOF application. A copy can be obtained from the EOF office or by clicking the link below. Be sure it is properly signed and dated and all information is filled out.
  • Complete and mail the FAFSA to the Federal government, and provide EOF with a copy. Be sure that it is signed by student and parent before it is submitted, and list CCM as first choice college [code 007106]. The FAFSA can be supplied by a High School Guidance Counselor, EOF, CCM Financial Aid Office, or Office of Admissions; however, filing on line is strongly recommended on the web site: www.fafsa.ed.gov.
  • After completing the FAFSA application all students must provide additional financial aid information for NJ state aid consideration (EOF & TAG – Tuition Aid Grant).
