SAS EOF

School of Arts and Sciences (SAS EOF)

The School of Arts and Sciences (SAS) Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) Program was established in June 2007 when the Rutgers-New Brunswick liberal arts colleges’ EOF Programs (Douglass College, Livingston College, Rutgers College, and University College) were consolidated.  The SAS EOF Program is committed to providing access and opportunity to first-generation college students who demonstrate potential for success and a high level of academic motivation, and who qualify for admission on the basis of academic and financial need.  The SAS EOF Program strives to attract students who possess the drive to overcome personal and financial obstacles, and take advantage of all of the educational enrichment opportunities (such as undergraduate research, study abroad, internships/externships) that attending a premier Research University provides.

From first enrollment through graduation, students admitted to the School of Arts and Sciences EOF Program are required to meet Program guidelines to maintain their eligibility. These include successful completion of the Summer Institute, maintaining an on-going active relationship with their assigned counselor, and participation in academic support efforts, such as, tutoring, creating an academic plan, interpersonal skills-building activities, workshops, educational enrichment activities, and career exploration.  SAS EOF students are expected to prepare themselves for life after Rutgers University.  Toward this end, the Program places special emphasis on moving students toward graduate education programs, professional schools, and rewarding careers.
