2021 EOF Summer Program
What is the EOF Summer Program?
The EOF Program at Union County College is offering first time college students the opportunity to further develop their skills and knowledge as scholars, leaders and professionals. The goal of the Summer Program is to introduce our scholars to the academic and social demands of college life, as well as prepare scholars for an effective transition into the Fall semester. Our Summer Program begins our scholars on a journey to be elite and empowering them for future college success. We offer several options for participation. Applicants can participate in one or both of our four-week academic institutes or our condensed Accelerated Institute. In order to receive the most benefits, we recommend participating in at least one academic institute.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, EOF has switched to an online intensive institute. EOF wants to empower and enrich our scholars, while also keeping everyone safe and practicing social distancing.
EOF English Institute
June 28 – July 22
9:00 am to 1:00 pm
The mastery of English and proper grammar is critical to the success of any scholar that is pursuing a degree in higher education. Our English Institute looks to sharpen skills related to reading comprehension, effective composition of essays and other works.
To strengthen their college level writing, scholars will receive coursework in English, receive in-class and after-class tutorial support and participate in the EOF 101 enrichment course to assist in the transition of being a first-time full-time student. The EOF English Institute is a four-week program offered online, with available tutoring and optional post session activities for EOF Summer Program scholars.
The 2021 EOF English Institute will run June 28 – July 22 (no classes on Fridays). Please note that both the first and last day of the institute are extended day sessions (9:00 am to 3:00 pm) via online platforms
EOF Math Institute
July 26 – August 19
9:00 am – 1:00 pm
A mastery of math is key in every facet of the educational spectrum. Whether that is being an outstanding Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) major or excelling in Statistics, mathematics is essential to be a leader within any industry.
Scholars who attend the EOF Math Institute will strengthen their skills in either Algebra or Statistics. Additionally, scholars will receive post class tutorial support and participate in the EOF 101 enrichment course to assist in the transition of being a first-time full-time scholar. The EOF Math Institute is a four-week program offered online, with available tutoring and optional post session activities for EOF Summer Program scholars.
