FDU's Middle College program gives college-bound juniors and seniors the opportunity to experience university-style learning before they even graduate high school.

Students take part in lectures and laboratory experiments on University campuses and FDU faculty visit the high schools to supplement ongoing instruction. Faculty and FDU staff also supervise students at various intellectual and cultural activities throughout the New Jersey/New York/Philadelphia metropolitan area.

Qualifying students are high school juniors and seniors in advanced and honors sections in subjects such as literature, science, art, mathematics and other courses. Founded in 1984, the Middle College program is now affiliated with more than 88 high schools throughout New Jersey, providing over 2800 students the opportunity to get a jumpstart on their college education.
