North Carolina Early College Scholarship


NORTH CAROLINA EARLY COLLEGE students can attend Fayetteville State University and earn a bachelor's degree DEBT FREE.*

We will provide selected students with a scholarship to make it possible. Here's how it works:

  • If you are a North Carolina Early College student, have a high school unweighted GPA of 3.0 or higher, and have applied for federal financial aid, you're eligible to apply. You must be a North Carolina resident to qualify.

  • The scholarship is available for up to TWO YEARS while enrolled at FSU (excluding summer school).

  • FSU will award you a scholarship to cover the cost of attendance above any federal and state grants and scholarships you receive.  You don't have to accept any loans.

  • The scholarship will cover the cost for tuition, fees, room and board.  That means living on campus is covered! 

You can earn a bachelor's degree without having to use your own money  AND you can do it while attending a school that puts you first to set you up for a sucessful future. 

What you need to do:

Apply now and begin your journey to a debt free degree.  If you have any questions or want additional information, please contact the Office of Admissions at 910.672.1371 or
