As an international student, you will join FSU's diverse, global campus community. Our Office of International Education will support you during your application process and throughout your time as a student. Once you're a Bronco, our International Students Association can also help you become acclimated to campus and find your place in the Bronco family.

How to Apply

*SpanTran has created a custom application for Fayetteville State University students to help them get the right kind of foreign transcript evaluation at a discounted rate. You can access their application here.

All documents must be received at least thirty (30) days prior to the semester of proposed study at Fayetteville State University.

For FSU to remain in compliance, ALL F-1 VISA international students in the U.S. are only allowed to take one online course or one distance learning course per semester. All the remaining classes must be face to face.

The definition of an online course is as follows:

“An online, or distance learning, course for the purpose of international student regulations means a course that is primarily offered through technology and does not require the student's physical attendance for classes, examinations or other purposes integral to completion of the class.”
