The distinguished faculty is committed to challenging each student to excel, and the low student-faculty ratio of 11:1 ensures individual attention. Fordham offers more than 65 majors.

These students had high test scores, excellent grades, recommendations, and essays. They were picked by the universities they applied to. Only half of qualified applicants nationwide are awarded scholarships.
