Bronco STAR

Bronco STAR is an academic support program at Fayetteville State that works toward increasing access and decreasing barriers to a college degree for students who learn differently. The Bronco STAR project works in several ways:

For Students Students who have learning differences, and do not learn the traditional way may benefit from our package of services. Bronco STAR participants have regular meetings with an Academic Success Coach, one-on-one tutoring, dedicated study space in the Bronco STAR HUB, access to assistive technology, and the ability to learn from one another to meet school and life goals.

How to apply: Students in the Bronco STAR program must be admitted to FSU through the regular admissions process. Once you are an enrolled Bronco, we will meet with you to find out whether our services will be of benefit to our learning differences related to Executive Functioning Challenges, Attention Deficit Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and other learning differences. Because we do not require a diagnosis, we look for evidence and patterns in multiple overlapping ways. We will look at the following:

  • Referral from an advisor, parent, instructor, or another person who has seen you engage with your education over time
  • Evidence of struggle in academic pursuits (early alerts, GPA, progression, etc.)
  • Your answers to a self-assessment questionnaire
  • Interview with STAR staff
  • To apply to the program, please visit our office at 202 in the Helen T. Chick building or give us a call at 910-672-1506

Champions' primary role is to serve as advocates for students with learning differences and as a point of contact for our students when they need assistance.
