This scholarship is from a college located in New Jersey, the Felician University operates as a private health institution. Since 2015, there have been only two widely used campuses. However, each is located in a different city but still located in the state of New Jersey. Originally the first name used to present the school was the Immaculate Conception Normal School by the Felician Catholic Sisters who discovered it in 1923. The name of this institution has been changed a number of times.
Felician University may be located in New Jersey but it’s less than 20 miles away from one of the biggest cities in the world, New York City.
The University operates in two areas within New Jersey where students can attend in-person and on-campus classes. There are actually multiple universities operated by the Felician institution and this one just so happens to be 1 of 25 or more. For more than a decade, the Normal School trained in-service teachers and qualified them for state certification.
During the year 1935, the Normal School was raised to the status of a teacher training college approved by and affiliated with the Catholic University of America. The students who belonged to a religious order completed a maximum of seventy-two semester hours of their undergraduate work at the College and then transferred to the Catholic University of America, Seton Hall, or Fordham Universities.
It would not be until 1967 that this private college would actually reference itself as Felician University, where the institution promptly became a four-year graduate center.
As a matter of fact, women make up more than half (around 75%) of the student population, with more than 65 different field studies for students to major in.
Some of the top rankings that Felician is most known for are:
- Becoming known as the third private institution in New Jersey for the best value in 2017, garnering a spot in history as the 3rd best private school in the state.
