All prospective student applications, regardless of classification, must be accompanied by a $40.00 application fee, which is not refundable.

Applicants for transfer admission are evaluated on the basis of their college record and must be eligible to return to the last institution in which they were enrolled. Transfer students must meet the same entrance requirements as first-time applicants. Emphasis on the high school record diminishes in importance as more college study is completed. The strength of the previous college(s) attended as well as the courses selected are factors in the evaluation process.

Transfer applicants are required to provide the Office of Admissions with transcripts from previous colleges, universities, two-year institutions and secondary schools attended signed by the appropriate officials. Even though no transfer of credit may be involved, all previous post-secondary experience must be certified by transcript or record of attendance.

 

To be eligible for admission at Fayetteville State University, transfer students must:

  1. be eligible to return to the institution last attended; and
  2. have attained a 2.00 GPA or higher based on all courses attempted at all institutions.

Admission to the unversity does not guarantee admission to a professional teaching curriculum, the Nursing Program, or any program that has specific requirements. Students are responsible for ensuring that all requested credentials are forwarded to the Office of Admissions prior to registration for the semester for which they wish to enroll.  Falsification of the application or of any academic records will make the applicant ineligible for admission or subject to dismissal if admission has already been granted.

 

Transfer students who graduated from high school beginning 1990 and beyond are required to meet the 1990 minimum admissions requirements of the Board of Governors of the University of North Carolina. Exceptions are as follows:

  1. Transfer applicants who have the associate of arts, the associate of science, or the associate of fine arts degree (institution may waive some of the minimum requirements for these applicants).
  2. Transfer applicants from a community or technical college who are pursuing a degree under an articulation agreement (institution may waive some of the minimum requirements for these applicants, consistent with the articulation agreement).
  3. Other transfer applicants who do not meet the minimum high school course unit requirements (institution may waive some of the minimum requirements for applicants in this category who have completed six semester or nine quarter
    hours of degree-creditable work in each of these subject areas in an accredited institution of higher education: English, mathematics, the natural sciences, the social and behavioral sciences, and a second language).
  4. Applicants who do not meet all the minimum high school course unit requirements but who were awarded the high school diploma or a General Education Development certificate (GED) prior to the spring of 1988 (institution may waive some of the minimum requirements for applicants in this category)..
