  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

What Students Are Saying

3.41 Average Rating
A very culturally and ethnically diverse educational facility. Student-centered learning environment. An excellent place to receive a education to prosper in any location, globally.
Ashley from Wayne, NJ
I love the school. It is a dry campus - meaning no drinking, even if you are 21 or older - but there is so much to do. There are variety of clubs and activities and Student Life is always open to new ideas. You also get tickets to events for free or lower prices.
Timisha from Jersey City, NJ
Fairleigh Dickinson has been a relaxing yet rewarding experience so far. On average, professors and other university staff have been both efficient and highly cooperative, and I've had no qualms over course material or its effectiveness. Attending the school may be a little on the expensive side, but I've had more than enough reason to stay.
