Candidates for an Associate in Arts degree must complete 60 credits of acceptable college work, including 46 credits of required core courses with a minimum grade point ratio of 2.00. Up to 64 credits can be earned in the Associate in Arts degree prior to transfer to an upper-division program.
Students at Petrocelli College are permitted to take selected electives from the many and varied course offerings of the University College: Arts · Sciences · Professional Studies, including the Peter Sammartino School of Education, the Henry P. Becton School of Nursing and Allied Health, the Samuel J. Silberman College of Business Administration and the Maxwell Becton College of Arts and Sciences.
Certain elective courses critical in the development of an upper-division major - such as Accounting, Economics and Business Law for the business major - are offered at Petrocelli College as part of the regular College program. A student is, therefore, able to build toward a major at Fairleigh Dickinson University through the use of a carefully selected elective program.
In addition to the wide variety of University electives, the College offers certain courses designed to complement the basic College program. These courses are reviewed regularly, and changes are effected to suit the needs of the student.
