Fayetteville State University Enters Partnership With Central Carolina Community College

Historically Black Fayetteville State University in North Carolina has entered into an agreement with Central Carolina Community College in Sanford that will create a pathway for graduates of the community college to transfer to the university to complete their bachelor’s degree.

Central Carolina Community College enrolls close to 5,200 students, according to the latest statistics supplied to the U.S. Department of Education. African Americans make up 17 percent of the student body.

Graduates of Central Carolina Community College who have obtained an associate’s degree will be able to complete an online bachelor’s degree at Fayetteville State University at a total cost of no more than $10,000 in out-of-pocket expenses, or approximately $5,000 at the community college and $5,000 at Fayetteville State. Students eligible for federal and state grants will likely pay less than $10,000 out of pocket.

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.

Peggy Valentine, interim chancellor of Fayetteville State University, stated that “this agreement demonstrates both institutions’ commitment to make the cost of a college education attainable and affordable. The FSU family looks forward to serving and working with those students who seek a degree from our institution.”
