Founded in 1942 by the Felician Sisters, Felician University is one of the few Franciscan universities in the country and the only one in New Jersey.

As a co-educational, liberal arts institution, Felician is home to approximately 2,300 undergraduate, graduate and adult studies students. With full-time, part-time and online offerings, you can expect an accommodating university experience at Felician University.
