Fairleigh Dickinson will require vaccines for some students this fall

Fairleigh Dickinson University announced that students attending all three campuses in Hackensack, Teaneck, and Madison must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before the fall semester begins. The announcement comes just weeks after Rutgers became one of the first universities in the country to make the COVID-19 vaccine a requirement for enrollment.

FDU’s decision applies to students living in on-campus dorms, attending in-person classes or any in-person activities.
