  • Degree: Pharmacy
"DO NOT choose this school, you will regret it 100% I agree with the reviewer who said that they only care about money and that is what FDU is all about, just money, stay away. The Dean of pharmacy school has a degree in education and his assistant also has a degree in education, I’m not sure what’s the relationship between education and pharmacy. How could he be a Dean of pharmacy school and he doesn’t hold a pharmacy degree? I guess for cheaper employment! I will leave the rest for you to imagine what kind school is this!"

"This school is a total SCAM! They take your deposit up front walk you through the whole process, save the financial part for the end of the visit. To turn around and find out it's way OVER PRICED! Then when you can't go they keep your $550.00 deposit. That is insane! They will NOT void your contract if you do not make it in. They will keep your money no matter who you talk to. That is highway robbery at it's best! Nobody answers the phone everyone just replies to email like they are afraid of confrontation. You confronted me when you took my money but now you ignore me, totally unprofessional! The nonrefundable policy should NOT be enforced if the student can't go to the college. Parents work hard especially single parents. Other colleges don't take your money unless your child gets in! This school is a good ole private SCAM!!"

"This school is all about making money off students in the pharmacy program. The dean told us that he didnt care what he think so we are just a number to them. The university does not help anyone. They try to push the clubs they have but it will not help you. In terms of financial aid they dont help but they make sure you pay. As for classes it is not organized at all. And you cant speak out to the dean about your classes or else he will tell you pharmacy isnt for you. Hes such a joke, someone with an education degree is running the pharmacy program, does that make any sense? This is the ONE OF THE worse pharmacy programs and they should be reported."

  • Degree: Executive MBA
"The range of courses that Fairleigh Dickinson University offers for the Executive MBA program has enabled me to acquire a more in depth knowledge base of managerial skills, and apply those skills towards the growth of my career. The classes are offered on Saturdays from 8:30am-4:30pm with an hour break for lunch, so there's no need to rush to get to class after work fighting through rush hour traffic. I found this to be extremely convenient for my work schedule, which tends to be late hours during the week. The program has also been great for networking opportunities, as both the students and faculty come from top companies in the NJ area, which is also an added benefit."

  • Degree: Early Childhood Education
"The program is not as difficult or demanding as I thought it would be. I do not feel as though I got out as much as I could from it because subjects were either rushed over and topics were not discussed in the depth they should. Most professors would give good grades to products that should not have received such high marks. Few comments were supplied to students so that improvements could be made Also, the school is very expensive and my academic scholarship ended during my fifth graduate year even though I received help during my four undergraduate years."

"I went to FDU to play volleyball and to attend a school in another state. It appealed to me because it seemed close to NYC and I wanted to experience the city life. It was a good school for me because it was more urban compared to many of the rural schools I visited, but there were many commuters which made it possible for me to only be friends with athletes that stayed on campus or the few non commuter non athletes."

"My university has improved in the past four decades, but is still somewhat true to the old postulate, "If one can't go to university, go to Fairleigh.". Having now given short shrift to my alma mater; I managed to rise above its reputation, only to sink into lethargy and sloth, with subsequent effect to my earning ability."

"Fairleigh Dickinson University is a great school with welcoming faculty who strive to motivate and challenge their students. The small class sizes allow for great one-on-one interaction between students and faculty. Moreover, the various campus activities, dining locations, clubs and career opportunities help to promote well-rounded students."

  • Degree: Psychology
"The Psychology program at FDU Florham is phenomenal, the classes are interesting and challenging and the teachers are extremely helpful when teaching and tutoring students. The program is an overview of the different areas of psychology and also allows students to take elective classes in their own interests such as counseling or industrial psychology. The degree is very liberal arts based still, but does allow students to take many different psychology classes and with great teachers. My psychology classes were among my favorite at the school."

"Students going to Fairleigh Dickinson are not going to receive the assistance that they need. The college doesn't help you when it comes to financial aid and academic advising. They throw you in there with your classes and sometimes they'll even put you over credits and not tell you about extra fees. They will give you money for your year which is totally fine but they will never give you a full scholarship. Even if you are extremely poor you will always have to pay something"

  • Degree: Counseling
"The pros: The Clinical Mental Health Counseling program is a CAACREP accredited program with a structured curriculum that puts you on the right track if you want to become an LPC. The faculty is extremely helpful, supportive of their students, and truly show that they care. The cons: Being that FDU is a private institution, tuition is pretty expensive if you are not planning to apply for FAFSA loans."

"Absolutely horrified by the financial aid office and their blunders. Program advertised a false amount of available financial aid to students causing students to scramble for alternative loan sources after 1.5 years of study in a 4 year program. New program is still finding its ground, several professors are absolutely brand new to teaching which raises the question on quality of faculty. 3 Faculty have already quit in the programs 1.5 years of existence. School building is not on the actual university campus, rather it is an office building which they rent out across the street--completely segregated from campus life. FDU does not have many extracurricular activities or groups for graduate students, more catering to undergraduate liberal arts majors."
