COMPASS is an individually tailored, comprehensive, academic, and social support program for a very limited number of college students with high functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder or Asperger’s Syndrome.
COMPASS is offered separately on each of FDU’s two New Jersey campuses. The goals of this two-year program are:
- to help each student recognize and make use of existing academic and social strengths,
- to aid in the development of new abilities, and
- to promote progress toward a higher level of independent functioning.
As a participant in COMPASS, students will begin the FDU experience during the summer when all incoming freshmen participate in a one-time overnight freshman orientation designed to help them meet their new classmates and become acquainted with the university campus and the services available. An orientation to Fairleigh Dickinson University and COMPASS will also be held for parents at that time.
