Yes, visit the University Library website at

Will I need to purchase any books for my classes; If so where do I get them?

This depends on the course you are taking and the instructor teaching it. Most courses will require a text book or material of some kind. Specific requirements for each course can be obtained by logging into WebCampus and checking your online course. When the information is available, we post the book list on the home page of this website.

Books can be purchased through a variety of means, including the FDU Bookstore. Many students check online book stores and the book publisher as well.

What are the technical requirements for participation in FDU's online program?

There is no special software to purchase and today's computers are adequately equiped to access our WebCampus. Most important is a high speed Internet connection (dial up is too slow). A full list of hardware and software requirements can be found on page 4 in the WebCampus Student Manual.

To what address should I mail my tuition payment? Can I pay online or use a credit card?

There are several ways to make payments to FDU. For full details, refer to the Tuition and Payment page.
