Welcome Incoming Freshman!

As a first-year EOF student, you will participate in an immersive Summer Institute Program, where you can earn up to 6-credits, receive supplemental instruction, participate in a research project, build relationships with your academic advisor, EOF counselor, and faculty, and develop life-long relationships with your peers–all at NO-COST to students. 

It is advised that all incoming Freshman students should attend and successfully complete the EOF Summer Institute. Admission to Rutgers University-Camden is contingent upon successful completion of the summer program.  

Applying to EOF for Incoming Freshman

EOF admission is highly competitive and spaces are limited every year. Potential students can apply through the Rutgers University admissions application by indicating “yes” in their interest to be considered for the EOF Program. We encourage interested students to apply when the Rutgers Admissions application opens in September.
