The curriculum of the Petrocelli College of Continuing Studies intends to specifically address the needs of students outside the mainstream of traditional undergraduate and graduate populations served by the University's other colleges. The College's many initiatives also represent an entrepreneurial approach to meeting the needs of students of all ages and backgrounds.
Programs listed on this page are programs for academic credit. For non-credit programs, see Continuing Studies.
In conjunction with the other colleges, Petrocelli College also is heavily involved with distance-learning initiatives, summer- and winter-session programming and the support and development of credit certificate programs.
Formed in April 1998, originally with the name New College of General and Continuing Studies, Petrocelli College of Continuing Studies addresses the special educational needs of nontraditional students, including adult learners.
Recognizing that the student profile on most U.S. campuses is changing dramatically, the University's Petrocelli College provides a unified approach to -- and enhanced focus on -- adult learners; it continues to position FDU as a leader in providing learning opportunities in a strong academic foundation for students of all ages. The College also provides a point of entry and a supportive educational environment for those full-time students who do not meet regular admission requirements.
Petrocelli College features precollege programs, two- and four-year undergraduate degree offerings, three graduate degree programs, postbaccalaureate education and nondegree programs, with many credit, noncredit and certification options. Based on the Metropolitan Campus, Teaneck, New Jersey, the College offers programs on both New Jersey campuses, as well as at more than 50 other sites. Courses are offered in formats, at times, and in locations convenient for those students outside the mainstream of traditional undergraduate and graduate populations served by the University's other colleges.
