The EOF Program provides academic and personal support services to EOF students.
EOF provides participants with highly effective and timely academic support services. These include, but are not limited to, individual and small group tutorials and access to professional learning specialists. In addition, the Assistant Directors/Counselors use their knowledge of a student’s particular learning style and preferences to facilitate more effective selection of courses, faculty, and academic support options.
Each student is assigned to an EOF counselor who provides academic, career, personal, and financial counseling. Students receive individual as well as group counseling. The counseling staff also prepares and presents various workshops to facilitate students' transition to college and support their successful completion of an undergraduate degree.
EOF students receive one-on-one or small group tutoring services at no cost to them in order to address their individual academic needs.
EOF Academic Courses:
During their first and second years, EOF students register for credit-bearing courses taught by EOF staff designed to enhance their academic and leadership skills.
Students receive a financial aid package designed to meet the cost of attending FDU while minimizing loans and maximizing grants. The package includes federal grants and loans, as well as state and university grants, and covers the cost of tuition, fees, educational materials, and room and board (if applicable).
EOF Graduate Grants:
EOF graduates who enroll in Masters Degree programs as full-time, matriculated students may apply to receive an EOF Graduate Grant. EOF graduates are eligible for the graduate grant as long as they continue to demonstrate financial need and meet established criteria. The amount of the graduate grants is dependant upon the student’s financial need. These grants are renewable based upon continued eligibility and available funding.
