  • Have you ever been a student at Fayetteville State University?
  • Have you stopped out before completing your degree for any reason-family obligations, work conflicts, military service, etc.?
  • Would you like to return to FSU to resume your studies?

If the answer to these questions is "Yes!," the Return2FSU program may be for you. Return2FSU helps students re-enroll at FSU by assisting them with any obstacles to re-admission: determining your unpaid bills, financial aid applications, re-admission applications, academic appeals, whatever might be standing between you and your return to college. Our Retention Counselor will guide you through the process, and every office on campus has someone ready to help you Return2FSU!

To complete the process to Return2FSU, submit the following:

  1. Online Application as a Returning User and:
    • Complete and submit the Application Agreement Page and the North Carolina Residency Form.  These forms can be found here under Miscellaneous Forms and are submitted to the Office of Admissions.
    • If you last attended FSU more than one semester ago, pay the $40 application fee to the Office of Student Accounts.
    • If you have attended another institution since you last attend FSU, submit the transcripts from the institution(s) to the Office of the Registrar.
  2. Complete the FAFSA.
  3. If you were on Academic Suspension, need to apply for Academic Fresh Start, or had Financial Aid Ineligibility when you left, see the policy on Satisfactory Academic Progress then complete and submit an Academic Appeals Form to the Appeals Committee.

Once you've completed these steps your application and forms will be processed by the Office of Admissions (and Appeals Committee if needed); this process takes approximately two weeks.  Upon being readmitted, your advisor will be able to prepare you to register for appropriate courses.
