Fairleigh Dickinson University Gap Year at Tel Aviv University
Under the FDU Freshman Year in Israel Program, students apply to and enroll at Fairleigh Dickinson University as freshmen prior to traveling to Israel for a one- or two-semester academic program for visiting freshmen. While studying in Israel, students can earn up to 18 college credits for one semester or up to 36 college credits for a full academic year. The program includes opportunities to travel in Israel, meet and socialize with Israeli students, and enjoy a vast array of cultural enrichment opportunities.
Transcripts from Tel Aviv University are sent to Fairleigh Dickinson University at the completion of a student’s program in Israel and credits automatically become FDU credits. Unlike many gap-year programs, no college deferral is necessary. Since students enroll at FDU during their freshman year, they are eligible for state, federal and institutional aid to help defray the costs of their studies in Israel. Students pay the same tuition and fees as they would for a semester or academic year at Fairleigh Dickinson University minus their aid package.
