The registration fee includes two large binders of course materials that summarize class presentations and will serve as a reference for regulatory, technical and managerial information useful in the field for years to come.

Housing is not included in your tuition. If you live outside of the central NJ area and need to secure a place to stay during EPH, please visit our Housing Options page.

EPH is a non-credit, continuing education program, so traditional financial aid is not available. However, there are some other financial aid options available to EPH students. See below for additional information.

Student Loans

The EPH Program has a relationship with SallieMae that enables our students to apply for student loans. These are private, credit based loans.

To begin the loan process, visit:

http://www.salliemae.com/rutgers-ocpe (select Smart Option Student Loan)

Details for your application:

  • Select State – NJ
  • Select School – Rutgers University – OCPE – CONT EDU002629-97
  • Course of Study – Other
  • Grade Level – First year freshman
  • Enrollment Status – Half time

Important: SallieMae will give you a recipient ID and password, but they will NOT review your loan application until Rutgers confirms that you are really enrolled in the EPH course. You must email your recipient ID and password to us for your loan application to be reviewed.

When applying for a student loan to attend the EPH program, please be mindful of the potential issues surrounding obtaining a loan and be sure to secure your financial arrangements early. If you need further information, please do not hesitate to contact Dalynn Knigge at 848-932-7315 or via e-mail at eph@njaes.rutgers.edu.

Financial Aid for U.S. Veterans

The EPH Program has been approved by the New Jersey State Approving Agency for Veterans Training. U.S. veterans enrolled in EPH can apply for benefits under the GI Bill; if you plan to pursue this option, contact us so we can submit your information to the Dept. of Veteran Affairs.

Training for the Unemployed

The EPH Program has been approved for One-Stop Career Training for New Jersey residents. Click here for more information about how to apply for retraining funds.

Lifetime Learning Tax Credit

Students who attend the Rutgers EPH program may qualify for a 'Lifetime Learning Tax Credit.' A family may claim a credit up to $2000 maximum, equal to 20% of the first $10,000 of educational expenses. Eligible education expenses are offset by scholarships, grants and employer-provided tax free educational assistance. The tax credit is subject to income and other limitations. For more details, consult IRS Publication 970, "Tax Benefits for Higher Education" or discuss with your tax advisor. Visit http://www.irs.gov/publications/p970/ch03.html for information.
