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 happens if I register for the summer session before applying for EOF summer session funding?
A.Since summer EOF funding is limited, students may not register for summer classes on their own. Students must first renew their application for the upcoming year with the EOF assistant, with an summer application for EOF. Students will be notified in writing regarding their eligibility for summer funding. Students will then be registered by the EOF program. Any students registering on their own, without following these steps, WILL NOT RECEIVE FUNDING FOR THE SUMMER! Students will be responsible to pay for of any classes for which they register on their own.

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.
