Financing Your Degree
Felician University is committed to providing you with a nurturing and affordable academic environment – that’s why we remain one of the most affordable private colleges in New Jersey.
It is important to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible. It is the only way to determine if you will qualify for any loans. Filing online is recommended as it is quicker and more efficient than paper filing – fafsa.ed.gov. To file online you must first obtain a pin at pin.ed.gov.
Felician’s FAFSA Code: 002610
It is important that you obtain and use a Felician e-mail address. Administrative offices and faculty will use this e-mail address as a primary way to contact you during your time as a Felician student. When you register for classes, you will receive a letter in the mail with your Felician e-mail address and password.
This letter will also provide the details you need to access WebAdvisor, an online platform that will enable you to view course information such as your schedule and grades, and to interact with various campus offices.
Felician University uses a course management system (CMS) to provide the platform for online learning. Upon registering for an online course, you will be assigned log-in information for the CMS via your Felician University e-mail. Be aware that registration for an online course is closed on the first day the course begins.
The state of New Jersey requires all students attending classes at our main college campuses in Lodi and Rutherford to complete a health form. You will receive this form directly from the Felician Center for Health. Please complete and return this form as soon as possible once you receive it.
Student ID Card/Parking Permit
Once you are registered for your course(s) you may obtain your Student Identification Card and parking sticker at the Security Office on the Rutherford campus. Your ID and parking sticker will be valid throughout your degree program. Please bring a valid vehicle registration and valid vehicle insurance card to obtain your parking sticker.
Parking stickers are required to park at our two campuses. If you will be attending one of our programs at an off-site location, please check with your site director for parking information.
You are encouraged to obtain your parking sticker within two weeks of registering for classes in order to avoid receiving a parking ticket. Please contact the Rutherford Security Office at 201.559.3561 for more information. The office is located in Elliott Terrace.
