State regulations require that public universities seeking to enroll students residing outside North Carolina in distance or online programming must be approved to deliver such programming in accordance with the receiving state’s requirements. In other words, applicants who reside outside North Carolina will only be admitted to online degree completion programs, certificate programs or individual online courses offered by Fayetteville State University if the university has secured authorization from the applicant’s state of residence, when required. Individuals interested in applying to one of these online programs or courses who do not reside in an authorized state, should not submit an application or application fee for admission to FSU until authorization is verified.
FSU will monitor developments in state laws in each state in which it enrolls students and, if authorization or licensure is or becomes necessary, will seek those approvals. For additional information on the state authorization of distance education, please contact:
