Franklin Pierce Universityís the highest goal is the development of intellect and character. That what sets a Franklin Pierce education aside from others is that it requires that its students contribute far larger than they might have expected when they entered.
As an academic home, it is an advanced New England local school specializing in the liberal arts, sciences, business, and associated professional disciplines. This distinctiveness and the mission that animates it have a particular impact on an ever-increasing population of lifetime learners through the College of Graduate and Professional Studies.
Students can apply to enter in the fall, spring or summer Sessions. Applicants are assessed on an individual basis with the student's ability and genuineness of intention of main concern. The tendency toward better grades, more complicated course work and greater school participation are considered greatly in the student's behalf. Advisor support and additional recommendations are appreciated and are given particular consideration. Class size and campus setting are such that SAT results are usually a less applicable predictor of success at FP than continuing classroom success.
