EOF Student Checklist

Now that you’ve been accepted to Montclair State, your next step is to enroll as a full-fledged Red Hawk.

Use the checklist below for guidance.

In addition to completing the steps on the Freshmen Student Checklist or Transfer Student Checklist, all accepted EOF students must also:

Step 1
Submit the FAFSA Financial Aid Form

For Freshmen Students:

Complete the 2019-20 FAFSA for your mandatory Residential Summer Academy program online at fafsa.ed.gov as soon as possible. We recommend that you use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to link, or transfer, your tax return information from the IRS website into your FAFSA. Montclair State’s school code is 002617.

For Freshmen and Transfer Students:

To receive final acceptance into the EOF program for the academic year and to be considered for federal and state financial aid, as well as any merit- or non-merit-based scholarships, you must complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) by March 1.

Be sure to review the Financial Aid Checklist to make sure you have completed all necessary steps and to keep your financial aid applications on track.

Step 2
Placement Testing

Complete your Placement Test Reply Form within one week of submitting your new student deposit. While placement tests are administered to many incoming freshmen to establish their appropriate course level, some students are exempt.

Please review the Basic Skills Requirements and Exemption Criteria and indicate your status by completing and checking the appropriate line on the Placement Test Reply Form.

Step 3
Foreign Language Placement

Complete the Foreign Language Placement Registration Form. [AW5] Review the Foreign Language Placement Announcement to complete the form.

Step 4
Attend the mandatory Residential Summer Academy

All first-year students who are enrolling in the fall under the provisions of the EOF program are required to participate in an online mandatory Summer Academy from July-August. You will be contacted by Rahjaun Gordon gordonra@montclair.edu regarding specific orientation requirements for EOF. Any questions, please contact Rahjaun Gordon at 973-655-7016 or Dr. Daniel Jean at 201-364-3382.

Step 5
