Fayetteville State University Creates Pathway Programs With Two Community Colleges

Fayetteville State University, a historically Black educational institution in North Carolina, has partnered with Johnston Community College and Brunswick Community College to establish Pathway Plans between the institutions.

Johnston Community College in Smithfield, North Carolina, enrolls just over 4,000 students. African American make up 13 percent of the student body. Brunswick Community College in Bolivia, North Carolina, enrolls just over 1,400 students. African Americans are 13 percent of the student body.

The new partnerships will allow associate degree graduates from JCC and BCC to complete an online bachelor’s degree through FSU at a total cost of no more than $10,000. Participating students will have the opportunity to earn bachelor’s degrees in accounting, birth through kindergarten (non-teaching), business administration, criminal justice, fire and emergency services administration, intelligence studies, nursing, interdisciplinary studies, psychology, or sociology.

“Our students continue to be concerned about the costs of furthering their education beyond the associate degree,” said David N. Johnson, president of Johnston Community College. “The $10K Pathway Plan provides JCC graduates in select programs the opportunity to complete an online bachelor’s degree at a total cost of no more than $10,000 in out-of-pocket expenses. We welcome the opportunity to offer this affordable educational pathway from JCC to FSU to our students.”
