U.S. LOCATIONS

At Fairleigh Dickinson University, you will find two locations in northern New Jersey. Once you have selected your academic major, you may find that it is offered on both U.S. campuses — giving you the opportunity to choose both the living and learning environ-ment that you like most.

Both U.S. locations are less than an hour from New York City. They offer students easy access to the resources of New York City while providing safe, suburban environments. The campus distances from New York City are 10 km (Metropolitan Campus) and 56 km (Florham Campus).

Metropolitan Campus, Teaneck, NJ The University’s Metropolitan Campus, located in the dynamic New York/New Jersey corridor in Teaneck (Bergen County), features a univer-sity atmosphere with an international perspective, attracting students from the U.S. and around the world. Undergraduates have access to the resources of a major graduate center, and nearby New York City is an integral part of their learning experience. Accelerated bachelor’s/master’s options are among its many professional preparation programs.

Florham Campus, Madison, NJ

The University’s Florham Campus, located on a former Vanderbilt-Twombly estate in suburban Madison (Morris County), offers undergraduates a classic experience for the contemporary world in a small college setting. Its focus is on providing outstanding on-campus and residential living opportunities, hands-on learning experiences, strong graduate and professional school prepa-ration, and customized educational options — all framed by a global perspective. A variety of graduate programs are also offered at the University’s Florham Campus.

INTERNATIONAL LOCATIONS

Wroxton College

Wroxton College is the University’s own overseas campus, located in Oxfordshire, England. It offers Fairleigh Dickinson University students outstanding study abroad options. Vancouver Campus

Fairleigh Dickinson University now offers undergraduate degrees in business, information technology and individualized studies and a graduate degree in administrative science in Vancouver, British Columbia, one of the most scenic, cosmopolitan and multicultural cities in the world.

APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS

Read the Information and Application Instructions section on page 3 and submit the following:

1. Application – Complete pages 11 thru 14. 2. Transcripts – For first-year bachelor’s degree applicants, official transcripts must be sent directly from your secondary school (high school and/or post-secondary institutions) to Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Office of International Admissions. The transcript should include all courses in progress. First-year bachelor’s degree applicants are required to submit transcripts from each secondary school attended. Transfer and graduate applicants must submit transcripts from all post-secondary institutions attended. Individual marksheets showing all attempts are required of applicants who completed study in South Asia (India). If you have completed fewer than 24 semester hours of university coursework at the time of applica-tion, you must submit an official transcript from your secondary school (high school).

For transcripts not in English, a notarized or certified English translation must accompany the original transcript. A transcript is official only when it is sent directly from an institution to Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Office of International Admissions, or when it is submitted with the application in a sealed envelope stamped by the institution. FDU will accept credentials sent electronically via Docufide.

Transfer applicants must submit course descriptions of all university coursework completed or currently in progress. 3. Recommendations – You should submit two letters of recommendation. For first-year bachelor’s degree applicants, at least one must be written by a teacher or school counselor. For transfer and graduate applicants, at least one recommendation must be written by a university faculty member or academic adviser. If the applicant has been out of university for several years, a recommendation from an employer may be submitted. All letters of

recommendation should be written on letter-head stationery and submitted to the Office of International Admissions either directly from the recommender or in sealed envelopes accompanying the application.

4. Standardized Test Scores – First-year bachelor’s degree applicants are encouraged to submit results from the Scholastic

Assessment Test (SAT) or the American College Test (ACT) directly to the Office of International Admissions. While the tests are not required for international applicants, submission of test scores often increases the student’s chance of admission and receiving a scholarship. SAT or ACT scores are required for Col. Fairleigh S. Dickinson Scholarship applicants. Transfer and graduate applicants with 24 or more semester hours are not required to submit an SAT or ACT score. Information concerning these examina-tions can be located at collegeboard.org or act.org.

FIRST-YEAR BACHELOR’S

DEGREE STUDENTS

Applicants to Fairleigh Dickinson University are expected to have completed the secondary school curriculum that will best prepare them for their first year of study at the university level. Applicants for fall semester admission which begins in late August must submit all applica-tion materials to the Office of Internaapplica-tional Admissions by July 1. However, applicants are encouraged to apply early during their final secondary school year so that student visa documents can be sent well in advance to assure appropriate consideration at a U.S. embassy or consulate and in order to locate lower airfares for your trip to the USA. Applicants for spring semester admission which begins in late January must submit all application materials by December 1. First-year bachelor’s degree students are admitted on a “rolling basis”. An admission decision is usually sent within three weeks after submission of a complete application.

ADVANCED STANDING

Entering first-year bachelor’s degree students can qualify for advanced standing for academic credit earned by the following methods: • Through Advanced Placement (AP)

examinations administered each May by the College Entrance Examination Board; • Through the International Baccalaureate

(I.B.) program; or

• By requesting transfer credit for advanced secondary school studies. For example, A-level results or the 13th year of education.

EDUCATIONAL REQUIREMENTS

An applicant must have graduated from an

accredited or government recognized secondary school or have received his or her General Education Development (GED) certificate.

It is recommended (but not required) that

an applicant complete the equivalent of 16 academic (university preparatory) units in secondary school with a distribution as follows: • English: 4 units

• University preparatory mathematics: 3 units • History: 2 units

• Laboratory Sciences: 2 units • Foreign Language: 2 units • Electives: 4 units

It is recommended that applicants to

bach-elor’s degree programs in engineering or science take university preparatory mathematics in algebra, geometry and trigonometry, a course in chemistry which includes a laboratory, and a course in physics which also includes a laboratory.

Applicants to a bachelor’s degree in health

sciences program should take at least two units with a laboratory in biology and in chemistry.

TRANSFER STUDENTS

It is assumed that most transfer candidates have completed university coursework similar to the desired Fairleigh Dickinson curriculum. Transfer credit may be awarded for courses at a university that is either regionally accredited in the United States or recognized by the foreign government where the university is located, if the study is substantially equivalent to courses offered in the desired Fairleigh Dickinson curriculum and if the study has been completed with the equivalent of a grade of “C” (2.0) or better on the American university grading system.

Applicants may apply for admission during their last semester at their former university; however, a final transcript must be received in the Office of International Admissions before a student enrolls at Fairleigh Dickinson. If an admitted student submits all course descriptions of previous coursework or a transfer credit evaluation during the admissions process, he or she may request to know approximately how many transfer credits will be awarded.

Credit Evaluation for Undergraduate Transfer Students: Admitted students trans-ferring from foreign universities will be required to submit a course-by-course World Educational Services (WES)* credential evalu-ation for transfer credit eligibility. The WES evaluation must be submitted upon or before your arrival on campus. For more information, visit wes.org.

*A WES evaluation is NOT required for IB, AP or *A-level examinations.

Transfer Applicants to Nursing and Allied Health Programs: A course-by-course WES eval-uation of your foreign credentials is required at the time of application.

For students who have I.B. higher level exams, British A-levels or AP exams, a WES evaluation will not be required for transfer credit evaluation. Please submit all official exam results upon or before your arrival on campus.

Fairleigh Dickinson University offers rolling admissions for transfer students.

GRADUATE STUDENTS

Applicants to master’s degree programs must have completed the equivalent of a four-year U.S. bachelor’s degree.

Applicants may submit an application during their final year of bachelor’s degree study (after completing their mid-year examinations). If admitted, final year transcripts with proof of degree completion must be received in the Office of International Admissions before the student is permitted to enroll.

Students who have earned a three-year bachelor’s degree (with the exception of the European Diploma Supplement with the required ECTS credits) must complete an additional year of study before applying for admission. This may include the first year of a foreign master’s degree or a post graduate diploma (PGD) earned through resident instruction at an accredited or government recognized university.

Applicants who do not have a four-year bachelor’s degree and who are interested in the University's master’s degree programs in Computer Science or Management Information Systems, or the Master’s in Business Admin-istration (M.B.A.) may apply for admission to a Bridge Program. Successful candidates are admitted and required to enroll in one year of bachelor’s degree course work before beginning the master’s degree courses.

For details about the Bridge Programs, contact the International Admissions Office, refer to the Graduate Studies Bulletin or visit fdu.edu/bridge.

Graduate and Ph.D. Degree Applicants to Nursing and Allied Health Programs: A course-by-course WES evaluation of your foreign credentials is required at the time of application.

Waiver Credit for Graduate Students: Admitted graduate students who wish to apply for course waivers must submit course descriptions of previously completed graduate level course work which includes the following: 1. Course topic

2. Course objectives

3. In-class hours/class schedule 4. Description of assignments

5. Title and author(s) of textbook(s) used in the course

6. Grading/assessment policy (helpful, but not required)

If descriptions are not available, a course-by-course WES evaluation will be required.

Fairleigh Dickinson University recognizes academic potential of qualified applicants through scholarship awards and other programs. To apply for scholarships, you must submit an International Scholarship Application (see page 15) along with the Application for Admission for International Students and Americans Abroad. Scholarships are awarded only to newly admitted students, and currently enrolled Fairleigh Dickinson students may not apply. International Student Scholarship: All foreign citizens and Americans who reside outside the United States may apply for an International Student Scholarship. The schol-arship is awarded to qualified full-time freshmen, transfer and graduate students and the amount of the scholarship is based on academic merit and demonstrated financial need. The scholarship may be renewed annually at the same level of funding contingent upon successful academic performance. Scholarship amounts vary and scholarships are awarded at the time of admission only.

Presidential Scholarship: These full-tuition scholarships are available to first-time, full-time undergraduate freshman applicants. Consider-ation will be given to students who have the equivalent of a 3.5 G.P.A. and an SAT Critical Reading + Math score of 1300 or higher or an ACT of 29 or above. A nomination from a Guidance/Career Counselor or an EducationUSA Advisor (fdu.edu/counselornomination) is required. Students who receive the scholarship are required to live on campus for the duration of study. A nomination and complete application with all supporting documents must be received by January 15 for the Fall/August semester or November 1 for the Spring/January semester.

Colonel Fairleigh S. Dickinson Scholarship: All foreign citizens and Americans living abroad who apply as first-year bachelor’s degree students are automatically considered for the Colonel Fairleigh S. Dickinson Scholarship. An official score on the Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) or the American College Test (ACT) is required for consideration. The amount of the award can be significant if the applicant scores well on either of these examinations.

Phi Theta Kappa Scholarship: These awards recognize transfer students studying at community colleges in the United States who are members of Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Honor Society and have completed at least 24 credits of college-level work. To qualify for a $16,000 PTK scholar-ship, applicants must submit proof of PTK membership with their application for admission. The PTK scholarship is annually renewable. Athletic Scholarships: These scholarships recognize the superior athletic abilities of students participating in NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) Division I sports at the Metropolitan Campus. All recipients are subject to the Division I rules and regulations of the NCAA. Awards can range up to full tuition and housing.

Global Housing Grants (Metropolitan Campus only): First-time undergraduate students living in the residence halls at the Metropolitan Campus will be considered for an annual $3,000 Global Housing Grant. These grants, awarded on the basis of academic merit and financial need, are renewable for up to two years. To be considered for a Global Housing Grant, you must submit the

International Scholarship Application as well as all required application documents. A limited number of these grants are available.

Alumni-Trustee-Faculty Endorsement Grant: A grant of U.S. $1,000 is awarded to enrolling students who have been recommended by an FDU graduate, faculty member or trustee of the University. Endorsements must be made in writing and submitted at the time of application. (See inside back cover for the referral form.) Grants are for the student’s first year only. Children of Alumni Grant: An annual grant of U.S. $1,500 is awarded to sons and daughters of Fairleigh Dickinson University alumni. Family Grant: A grant of U.S. $1,500 is offered to each child of the same family enrolled full-time simultaneously.

ELS English Language Center Grant: Awards of up to $5,000 per year are available to gradu-ates of ELS level 112 (certain restrictions apply). ELS students who qualify for a merit-based scholarship greater than $5,000 per year will not receive the ELS grant.

On-Campus Employment: There are on-campus jobs which become available to all students on a competitive basis. While jobs are not plentiful, international students may apply for them when they become available. International students are not guaranteed a job and should not include an on-campus job in their financial planning to cover the cost of attendance at the University. In addition, the number of research and teaching assistantships is very limited and highly competitive. Payment Plan: Fairleigh Dickinson offers a payment plan to qualified students. Upon arrival at the University, you may visit the Enrollment Services Office to apply. If eligible, you may pay for your annual expenses in eight monthly installments as opposed to the usual two payments prior to each semester.
