Vancouver Campus Tuition and Fees

FDU Vancouver Tuition and Fees for the 2023-2024 Academic year

All fees, tuition, and charges are subject to change at any time at the discretion of the University’s Board of Trustees. However, this is usually done at the start of every academic year (Fall term).

Fairleigh Dickinson University is a not-for-profit institution that relies primarily on tuition to meet its expenses. Despite the financial hardships the university faces also as a result of COVID-19, we continue to make needed investments in technology and space expansion to provide students with superior learning support systems.

Undergraduate FDUV programs are 120 credits in length and require 8 academic terms to complete, usually over the course of 4 years.
