SCCC/FDU Scholars Program


Complete your undergraduate or combined bachelor’s/master’s degree — at either of FDU’s northern New Jersey campuses — with guaranteed scholarship support. Fairleigh Dickinson University and Sussex County Community College offer a dual admissions program that enables you to complete the courses required for Fairleigh Dickinson University undergraduate and select combined bachelor’s/master’s programs by earning an associate degree at Sussex County Community College.

The SCCC-FDU Scholars Program provides the necessary support and administrative services for Sussex County Community College students to transition to bachelor of arts, bachelor of science or combined bachelor’s/master’s degree programs at Fairleigh Dickinson University.

How the Program Works

  • You can enroll in the program as an entering freshman or during your first year at Sussex County Community College by completing an SCCC-FDU Scholars Program Intent to Enroll Form.
  • All credits you successfully complete at SCCC toward your associate degree — up to a maximum of 64 credits — can be considered for transfer toward Fairleigh Dickinson University’s bachelor’s or combined bachelor’s/master’s programs.
  • FDU offers more than 100 degree programs and concentrations in business, education, engineering, hotel/restaurant management, liberal arts, nursing and allied health, and the sciences.
  • You also can choose from nearly three dozen combined degree programs that allow you to complete a graduate degree through accelerated studies.
  • You have the option of enrolling at FDU’s Florham Campus (Madison, NJ) or Metropolitan Campus (Teaneck, NJ).

Scholarship Benefits of the Program
Upon earning your associate degree at SCCC and enrolling at FDU, you will automatically qualify to receive a 40% reduction from the appropriate FDU tuition rate.

You may also qualify for the following additional scholarship incentives:

  • If you are a Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) scholar, FDU will award you an $18,000 annual scholarship in lieu of the
    40% tuition reduction.
  • If your cumulative GPA is 3.5 or greater at SCCC, you will receive a $1,000 annual scholarship at FDU in addition to the tuition reduction.
  • If you qualify for NJ STARS II, you will receive the $2,500 scholarship from the state of New Jersey in addition to FDU’s 40% tuition reduction or PTK scholarship.
  • If you enroll in one of FDU’s combined bachelor’s/master’s programs, you will receive a 40% tuition reduction for the graduate year (unless you are enrolled in a graduate program that is offered at a more favorable tuition).
  • If you choose to live on campus, you will receive a $1,500 annual housing grant.
