  • The University is also one of the few universities in the world to be granted Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) status by the United Nations.

ESL and Academic Bridge Programs

Our comprehensive English as a Second Language (ESL) program is designed to prepare students to enroll in a degree program, enter a competitive job market, or simply improve their listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. In our Intensive English Program, full-time students study for 23 hours a week and must enroll for a minimum of eight weeks. Classes are kept to an average of 10 students to ensure students receive a lot of personal attention. In addition to classroom learning, a campus provides a total immersion experience; ESL students can interact with American students, live in the residence halls, participate in clubs, sports, campus activities and explore NYC. Conditional admission to Felician’s degree programs is also available to those studying in the full time Bridge program.

Felician College


Located in Lodi and Rutherford, New Jersey, Felician University is just 10 miles away from the famous New York City. This gives international students the opportunity to explore New York and all it has to offer, but at the same time gives students the opportunity to retreat to a more residential community for living and studying. With the best of both worlds, international students can grab a train ride to the City, or they can stay home where they are in walking distance to shops, restaurants, and a movie theatre – not to mention the on-campus facilities.

Campus Experience

As a co-educational, liberal arts institution, Felician is home to approximately 2,400 undergraduate, graduate and adult studies students. The campus environment is built on diversity with many spiritual, intellectual, and social events going on throughout the year. With two campuses, each location is self-sufficient, with its own cafeteria, classrooms, academic and administrative offices, study lounges, computer labs, activities and more. This will allow you the opportunity to interact with American students as well as other international students from across the globe.
