ADMISSION APPLICATION REVIEW AND SELECTION
All applicants must submit the application for admission, personal statement and a $40 application fee made payable to Fordham University.
A high school diploma or GED is required.
All applicants must submit documentation of the highest educational level at which they studied.*
The admission committee evaluates each application individually. An effort is made to assess ability, previous achievement, motivation and maturity of purpose - all of which are essential to success in collegiate studies.
* Applicants who are unable to provide documentation in a timely manner may be admitted conditionally for their first term of study.
THE COLLEGE SKILLS ASSESSMENT
A brief college skills assessment is part of the admission process, and is intended to insure that students have the skills requisite to success in a challenging university program. The assessment often identifies academic areas in need of improvement, and some candidates are admitted on the condition that they attend to them early in their Fordham careers.
Applicants must schedule an appointment to take the College Skills Assessment. Afternoon and evening appointments are offered several times each month throughoutthe fall, spring and summer.
This two part assessment consists of a standardized reading comprehension test and a brief writing sample. Total assessment time is approximately ninety minutes.
* Please note you are encouraged to submit your application prior to or on the date of testing.
SPECIAL STUDENT ADMISSION
Individuals who do not intend to pursue a degree can be admitted as special, non-degree students in order to enable them to attend the specific courses of their choice, or to complete the courses required for one of several certificate programs which the College offers. So, too, individuals who already hold a bachelor's degree can be admitted for specific courses, certificate programs, or the post-baccalaureate pre-medical program.
Students who are pursuing these courses need to submit the following:
