“I chose to attend the FDU Yeshiva Program because it offered a flexible schedule, which allowed me to continue my Judaic Studies, while still partaking in an undergrad program that would afford me all the professional opportunities I was looking for. While there, I was able to seek advice and utilize FDU’s pre-law counseling to help me determine and get into the law schools best fit for me.”

– Joseph Neuburger, BAIS ’18

SPECIAL SUMMER PRICING: After your first summer course, each subsequent summer course is an additional 50% off.

Please register by filling out the registration form above, signing it, taking a picture or scanning it, and emailing it to fparra@fdu.edu as soon as possible. Once you are registered, your instructors will get back to you with specifics on how to log on to your course. For advising, contact Dr. Francisco Parra at fparra@fdu.edu

Designed for busy students in the Orthodox Jewish community, the Yeshiva and Seminary Program at Fairleigh Dickinson University allows yeshiva and seminary students to transfer various credits and earn a bachelor of arts degree in less than 15 months. As a student in FDU’s Yeshiva Program for men or Seminary Program for women, you’ll complete your bachelor’s degree and achieve career success through exceptional academics, supportive professors and affordable tuition. The Yeshiva and Seminary Program has graduated hundreds of yeshiva and seminary students who have gone on to graduate and professional schools such as Harvard, Columbia, and Penn Law Schools, Johns Hopkins Medical School, the FDU Silberman College of Business MS in Accounting program, Rutgers Dental School, Wurzweiler and Touro Schools of Social Work, Wharton School of Business and various MBA Programs. Our students have also pursued various careers in business with their college degrees.

Program highlights

  • Enjoy easy access to NYC with our convenient location in Teaneck, NJ.
  • In-person as well as synchronous and asynchronous online classes.
  • Tuition that’s 50% less than many other FDU programs.
  • Transfer up to 90 credits (up to 72 credits from prior yeshiva and seminary study and up to 18 more from the CLEP or other exams and colleges) into the program and complete your BA in just one year.
  • Dedicated faculty who deliver highly specialized career development and graduate assistance that is tailored to meet the needs of yeshiva and seminary students.
  • Get ahead with shorter terms, including Jewish Holiday “Z’man” mini sessions.
  • Customize your degree with a specialization in business, psychology, entrepreneurship, public administration, healthcare administration, or pre-med.

Admissions requirements

  • Completed online application. There is no fee to apply.
  • Proof of a high school diploma (official transcript) or GED.
  • One year of post-secondary yeshiva/seminary studies in a recognized program.

Degree requirements

  • Completion of 120 credits (at least 30 at FDU)
  • Cumulative GPA of 2.0 in upper-level courses completed at FDU
  • Completion of 18 credits in the chosen specialization

Every student must take at least 30 credits (including online courses) with FDU. Out of these 30 credits, the following must be taken at FDU:

  • 6 credits of Advanced English
  • 18 credits of the degree concentration
  • 6 credits of CORE courses (Global Issues and Cross-Cultural Perspectives)

In addition, the following requirements must be fulfilled:

  • 6 credits of English (English Composition/Writing I & II)

All transfer credits should be submitted prior to the beginning of coursework and before students complete their FDU studies. The programs must be completed with FDU credits; that is, your last class must be taken at FDU. If you are taking a break, you should apply for a leave of absence. If you are gone from the University without a leave of absence, you must re-apply. You cannot simultaneously be a student at FDU and at another institution of higher learning (not including your Yeshiva/Seminary).
