    Main Academic Excellence that is in line with FDU admission standards.

    1. Score at least a 1030 on the SAT or 22 on the ACT.
    2. Maintain a GPA of at least a 3.15.

    Join Extracurriculars that Align with FDU’s Values.

    1. Join your school band, a sports team or another group activity. If Fairleigh Dickinson University-Florham Campus values music heavily, for example, then try to participate in an organization related to that topic.
    2. Volunteer in your hometown. Madison has tons of ways to be involved beyond just the college. Fairleigh Dickinson University-Florham Campus wants applicants that are also good ambassadors for the school - they want students who will give back to the local community and broader Madison area in general.
    3. Spend your summer doing something that speaks to your values, personal growth, leadership qualities and other less quantifiable characteristics. FDU needs to see past your test scores and grades - they need to know that you will be a valuable and contributing member of their community. You are more than grades and test scores - your experiences should demonstrate that.

    Prepare Your Application

    1. Write a stellar essay that shows Fairleigh Dickinson University-Florham Campus something they can’t figure out from the other parts of your application. For a detailed guide on writing the best college essay, check this out.
    2. Get teacher recs that speak to your character. If you know what you’re majoring in and include that in your FDU app, try to have at least 1 recommendation from a teacher in that department.
    3. Apply Before the Deadline. Too many students wait until the last minute to submit their application, and too much can go wrong during this precious time window. Since many students are applying on the last day, it’s possible that FDU’s own system crashes. Don’t risk the added stress this can cause - submit your app a few days early.
