$10,000 Degree Pathway Partnership

As part of a parternship between Fayetteville State University and Richmond Community College, Fayetteville Technical Community College, Guilford Technical Community College, Davidson County Community College, Isothermal Community College, Bladen Community College, and Southeastern Community College, associate's degree recipients can complete an online Bachelor's degree at FSU for a maximum "out of pocket" costs of $10,000.

How it Works:

(for illustrative purposes only, individual costs will vary):

Cost of Associate's Degree (60 credits): $5,000
Cost of 4-Year Degree Completion (60 credits): $8,000
Total Cost of 4-Year Degree: $13,000
Fayetteville State University Grant: ($3,000)
Student's Total "Out of Pocket" Cost: $10,000*

*"Out of pocket" costs refer to costs not covered by financial aid. Your cost may be much less than $10,000 if you are eligible for federal or state need-based grants.

Note: Cost estimates assume that student maintains continuous enrollment, enrolls in required courses only, earns final grades of A, B. or C, and does not withdraw from classes. FSU will provide an institutional scholarship each semester as needed to make sure total "out of pocket" cost does not exceed $10,000.
