Rowan Opportunity Program

Rowan Opportunity Program

The Rowan Opportunity Program is designed to help more students access a free education at Rowan University. Starting in the fall 2021 semester, first-time, incoming freshmen students whose families have an adjusted gross income (AGI) of $45,000 or less may now have access to free tuition and fees (see full eligibility criteria below). 

Once accepted into this program, students will remain eligible to receive free tuition/fees through graduation, even if household income changes. Since this is a need-based award, there is no minimum GPA requirement for eligibility, though students must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress for financial aid purposes to remain eligible. 

Eligibility Requirements

  • Must file a FAFSA and meet all state grant deadlines.
  • Must be a New Jersey resident.
  • Family AGI (as reported on the FAFSA or NJ Alternative Application) must be $65,000 or less. 
  • Must be an incoming, first-year freshman in the fall 2021 semester. 
  • There is no application required to be considered for this program. 

Additional Terms and Conditions

  • Full-time enrollment is required.
  • Funding available for fall and spring semesters only.
  • Will be awarded to cover tuition and fees after all federal grants, state aid, and institutional funding has been applied. This award cannot be used to create a refund/credit balance.
  • There is no GPA requirement, but students must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress to receive the award.
