    • Self-sponsored applicants do not need an affidavit.
    • The Affidavit of Financial Support must be in the name of the sponsor indicated on your bank statement. Multiple bank statements will require an affidavit from each sponsor.

FDU reserves the right to request submission of official documents via post as necessary.

Admitted students who plan to attend FDU must agency send official academic records (if applicable) in sealed envelopes before arrival on campus. Students will not be allowed to register for classes until official documents have been received.
