Fayetteville State University Partners With Piedmont Community College

Historically Black Fayetteville State University in North Carolina and Piedmont Community College in Roxboro, North Carolina, have signed a Degree Pathway Partnership. This agreement will allow students who graduate with associate degrees from Piedmont Community College to complete an online bachelor’s degree at Fayetteville State University for no more than $10,000.

Piedmont Community College enrolls just over 1,300 students according to the latest data supplied to the U.S. Department of Education. African Americans make up 27 percent of the student body.

“Fayetteville State University is excited to partner with Piedmont Community College to offer one of the nation’s most affordable pathways to a bachelor’s degree,” said James Anderson, chancellor of the university. “Both FSU and PCC are committed to putting higher education within reach of every North Carolinian.”

Through this partnership, PCC students will be able to complete bachelor’s degrees at FSU for these online programs: accounting, birth to kindergarten education, business administration, criminal justice, fire and emergency services administration, intelligence studies, nursing, professional studies, psychology, and sociology.

“Many PCC students are first generation or those interested in watching their educational costs,” said Pamela G. Senegal, president of the community college. “Connecting with partners that encourage graduates to continue their journey at a four-year institution, while saving money, is exactly the opening we would like to provide. Individuals with drive and desire should always be encouraged to follow their dream of a degree, no matter their financial situation. This partnership acts as that gateway.”
