4 Plus 1 Combined Degree Advantage

Fairleigh Dickinson University has announced an incentive program that offers the incoming class the opportunity to continue into the graduate-degree level with an extension of their undergraduate scholarships by one year. Students can choose from a wide selection of combined degrees. 

Advantages of this program include saving time by accelerating the student’s education. Students enrolled in this program can graduate with both a bachelor’s and master’s degree. Students also have the flexibility to go from undergraduate degrees at one FDU campus and finish their graduate degrees at the other. Qualified students must declare their intent to pursue a five-year combined degree after earning between 60 and 80 undergraduate credits. This is only offered to students continuing at the master’s graduate level on a full-time basis.

Read about the Combined Degree Advantage or contact the Undergraduate Admissions Office by calling 1-800-FDU-8803.
