    The Honors level is intended for students whose grades, test scores, and/or teacher recommendations indicated superior academic promise.

FDU Middle College Program

Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Middle College Program (MCP) is a concurrent program that provides an opportunity for qualified high school students to get an early start on college education by earning college credits while still in high school.

The credits earned are recognized as high school credits toward graduation but are also entered onto the student’s permanent Fairleigh Dickinson University (FDU) transcript. Most MCP courses are transferable to four-year colleges and universities.

Students must meet the criteria established by their high school (made available during the course selection process) in order to enroll in these courses.
