The faculty and administration of Fairleigh Dickinson University (FDU) are pleased to invite you to participate in the Middle College Program, the University’s long-standing concurrent enrollment program. You are eligible to take part in this exciting cooperative effort that engages the faculty and resources of your high school and those of the University.

Students who enroll in the program can get a head start on college by taking credit-bearing courses that offer a valuable preamble to college-level coursework. Participation in this program supports a student’s transition from high school to college, strengthens their college application, and aids in their development of crucial tools for future success.

Your instructor will be a faculty member from your high school whose credentials were reviewed and approved by an advisory committee of Fairleigh Dickinson University. Approved courses have also been thoroughly reviewed to ensure they meet program standards for college-level rigor and depth.
