Fairleigh Dickinson University has been educating America’s veterans since the end of World War II. We are a proud participant in the GI Bill® Yellow Ribbon Program, which allows a 100 percent eligible veteran to attend an FDU undergraduate, graduate, or certificate program at no cost.

For information regarding other FDU services available to veterans, including eligibility and financial information, or other resources outside this University, please see the links below.

Transcripts and Credits for Veterans

Veterans may be able to receive FDU credit for military education experiences. FDU uses the American Council on Education (ACE) credit recommendations to help award credits for these experiences. Each academic program at FDU makes independent judgments about military educational transcripts and college transcripts.
