Each year the EOF Board of Directors and the New Jersey Higher Education Office invite the campus programs to identify graduating EOF students who have demonstrated exceptional achievement during their college careers.  Students who graduate during the summer, and  fall of the current academic year  or will be eligible to graduate at the conclusion of the spring  semester  of the current academic year and have a cumulative GPA of 3.20 or higher are eligible for one of three academic achievement awards categories.  One graduating senior per program may also be nominated for an Outstanding Achievement Award which is explained below.  All awardees wear blue & gold  honor chords during commencement.
