Regional Center Student Performance

There is no typical student attending FDU’s Regional Center for Learning Disabilities. You will join students from the tri-state area as well as from states throughout the country. Most Regional Center students are pursuing a bachelor’s degree while some Regional Center students are enrolled in a two-year associate degree program at Petrocelli College on the Metropolitan Campus. Their majors range from accounting to art, engineering to education, communications to computer science.

What is typical among students in the Regional Center, however, is their outstanding record of success. They are motivated to succeed, and their interest and enthusiasm are evident in such measurable performances as:

  • Dean’s List: Nearly one in five Regional Center students is named to the Dean’s List while at FDU;
  • University Honor Roll: Nearly one in five Regional Center students makes FDU’s highest honor roll; and
  • Grade Point Average (G.P.A.): 40% all students in the program hold a B average or better and over 95% have a C average or higher.
