Becton College - Transfer Student Services

Florham Campus

WELCOME....

to all incoming Becton College Transfer Students at the Florham Campus of Fairleigh Dickinson University. We think you've made an outstanding decision to join our community of student and faculty scholars in a college that emphasizes the liberal arts in a supportive and caring environment. We hope that you'll use the resources available to you as you begin your journey through your academic program and into your future career.

Orientation

Every semester, the Office of Student Life hosts a transfer student orientation prior to the start of classes. It's a great opportunity to not only meet other new transfer students, but also to have questions answered by faculty, administrators and staff.

Advising and Registration Procedures

The College has worked to simplify the advising and registration process to be as user-friendly as possible. Critical to this endeavor is that you become skilled in understanding your curricular requirements, university policies and procedures, and all relevant deadlines.
