How Does Scholarship Work (Vancouver Campus)

Congratulations on your academic achievement!

Scholarship/Study Grant indicated in your Letter of Offer is awarded per tuition credit and applies to FDU Vancouver Campus university degree program only.

Most FDU courses are 3 credits each, full load for one academic year is based on 30 credits. For every credit hour you register, the Scholarship/Study Grant will be applied to your account. This Scholarship/Study Grant will remain in effect for your entire program of study provided you maintain a required cumulative grade point average on 4.0 scale.

Please use the chart below for information on your tuition costs.

Tuition fees are due after your register for the academic term.  Students usually take 15 credits per term on average. Minimum full-time course load for Fall and Spring terms – 12 credits; for Summer term – 9 credits.
