The Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) program is a University- and state-sponsored program governed by the policies established by the Office of the Secretary of Higher Education and Fairleigh Dickinson University. The fund was created by law in 1969 to ensure meaningful access to higher education for those who come from backgrounds of economic and educational disadvantage. The fund assists low-income New Jersey residents who are capable and motivated but lack adequate preparation for college study. To ensure the opportunity to attend college, the Fund provides supplemental financial aid to help cover college costs (such as tuition, books, fees, room and board) that are not covered by the state's Tuition Aid Grant program.

The EOF program is located on FDU's two New Jersey campuses. Each campus has an EOF office with an administrator and support staff. Services that are provided include financial aid, counseling and tutorial services. Students have access to academic, career, personal and financial aid counseling in both individual and group settings. Tutorial assistance is provided to students to reinforce and enhance their course work. In order to be responsive to students' varied learning styles and academic support needs, services are continually monitored and refined to ensure personalized attention.
