Exciting News: GRE Waiver for all FDU Vancouver MSACS Program Applicants!

September 20, 2023

We have some exciting news to share about our Master of Science in Applied Computer Science (MSACS) program.

Starting with the Summer 2024 term, the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) requirement has been officially removed from our admissions requirements. This change applies to all prospective students applying to the Summer 2024 term, making it easier than ever to apply for the MSACS program.

While GRE scores are no longer a mandatory part of your application, we understand that some students may still choose to submit them to enhance their academic profile. You have the option to include your GRE scores if you believe they will strengthen your application.

We hope this change simplifies your application journey and makes it even more accessible to all aspiring computer science and engineering students. At FDU Vancouver, we are committed to providing a supportive and inclusive environment for your academic pursuits.

FDU Vancouver Lowers Undergraduate Tuition

January 6, 2023

As a non-profit institution, FDU is committed to ensuring that the cost of degree programs is competitive and represents excellent value for high-quality education.

Effective for the Fall 2023 semester, tuition for international students enrolled in FDU undergraduate programs on the Vancouver Campus will be US$700 per credit hour.  The scholarship levels provided to high achieving students have also been revised.  This tuition and scholarship reset will clarify and simplify the cost of a FDU Vancouver undergraduate degree.  For returning students the tuition rate and scholarship level awarded them on admission will continue to apply. All students will be subject to any annual tuition increases that may occur in the future.

Tuition for undergraduate students who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents will follow the domestic student tuition framework.
