Fairleigh Dickinson works hard to ensure that the credits you earn during your service transfer directly to your degree.

Please ask a Veterans Education Counselor if you have questions about transcripts, the transcript evaluation process, or the FDU Policy Statement below.

FDU Policy Statement Regarding Academic Credits for Veterans

Fairleigh Dickinson University awards academic credits for military classes, including basic training, as well as other formal educational experiences, that have been evaluated by the American Council on Education (ACE) as academic credit. Academic credits also are awarded for military occupation specialties (MOS).

These credits are treated as transfer credits. Credits will not be factored into the student’s grade point average (GPA).

The number of credits awarded will vary depending upon a student’s military education transcript and the specific academic degree program chosen. Credit can only be transferred if it is applicable to the student’s chosen academic degree program requirements.

Each student’s transcript will be evaluated individually by a transfer student adviser in consultation with faculty in the appropriate university department. The decision of the transfer student adviser may be appealed to the academic dean.
