  • After activating your FDU NetID, install the Duo certification app to your phone at fdu.edu/duo to access FDU information.  This will ensure your access is secure whenever and wherever you log in.  Contact the University Technical Assistance Center at fdutac@fdu.edu or 973.443.8822 for assistance.

  • After activating the Duo app, visit fdu.edu/outlook for instructions on how to access your FDU student emails.  Make sure you check your FDU student email weekly leading up to your first semester, so you do not miss any important next steps or information.

  • After claiming your FDU NetID, please sign the Student Registration Contract.  Doing so, combined with completing the placement assessment process, allows the University to create your first semester course schedule.  To learn more and to sign the contract, visit fdu.edu/contract.
