— No Application Fee Required —
Offered through Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Petrocelli College on the Metropolitan Campus in Teaneck, NJ, this highly respected degree program — offered exclusively to commuter students  — is known for its small classes and exceptional academic support.   FDU is New Jersey’s only private university to offer a comprehensive, full-time associate degree program for recent high school graduates.

  • Leading to the Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree, this full-time program of study offers the personal support and attention of a smaller college environment.
  • As an A.A. student, you can take full advantage of University resources and activities — academic, social, cultural and recreational — that are available to FDU undergraduates.
  • Upon successful completion of the program, you can transfer seamlessly into many of the nearly 100 undergraduate majors and concentrations offered at the University’s Metropolitan Campus (Teaneck, NJ) or College at Florham (Madison, NJ).  
  •  As a graduate of the program, you’ll automatically receive an annually renewable $4,000 Alumni Award to continue your studies at FDU.

Enrollment is limited and applications are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis.
