Additional Information

FDU provides its students with a variety of different learning experiences that will teach, challenge and prepare you for a lifetime of success. Our classes are small and personal, and give you the opportunity to better connect with your instructors and other students. Every class is taught by an experienced, engaged professor, and we emphasize experiential learning, which we believe better prepares students for the real world.

FDU is test optional.  Though standardized test scores are not required, students are welcome to submit SAT or ACT scores with their application for admission.

"The things I learned from my FDU hospitality professor - be humble, be appreciative, and be respectful of your employees - prepared me for running a successful business."
