Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Why do I have an E hold on my transcript from the EOF department?
A.Every semester an E is put on your transcript to prevent you from registering for any classes without the approval of an EOF counselor. This hold may only be removed by an EOF counselor. This ensures good academic progress by making sure you have the prerequisites and you are properly registered for classes.
Q. What happens if I forget to reapply to the EOF Program?
A.It is the responsibility of the student to reapply to both the EOF and Financial Aid departments every year. If students miss deadlines for Financial Aid, this will disqualify them for any financial aid for the upcoming year. Deadlines will be posted on the bulletin board located outside the EOF department.
Q. What happens if I fall below a 2.0 G.P.A?
A.The EOF office upholds the same regulations of academic excellence set by Middlesex County College. (See College Catalog for additional information.)
Q. What is the process for applying for EOF Summer Funding?
The goal of summer funding and programming is to host new incoming students to the college. The program also works to provide support to renewal students. The summer grant should be used for students that have no other means of paying for summer courses. Students are expected to meet with the Senior Administrative Assistant to request a summer application and meet with their counselor/professional for approval. The Director (or Assistant Director) will make the final decision on approval. The number of students funded is based on the funding made available by state allocations.
- Students are notified of Summer Application availability.
- Students must complete their FAFSA and EOF Renewal form for the next academic year in order to be eligible for a summer application.
- Students must meet with their EOF counselor/professional to discuss summer course registration, advisement or planning.
- Once a course has been selected the student should register online and provide a printed registration form along with the summer application to their counselor/professional.
- The counselor/professional will complete the summer application with a recommendation for approval or denial.
Q. What happens if I exceed my maximum payments of EOF and Financial Aid?
A. Most students who are at Middlesex County College for more than two years will find that they might encounter problems with funding for school expenses. Any EOF student who encounters this problem should contact the EOF office as soon as possible.
