FSU Honors Military-Involved Students with Degree Credits and Scholarships

Among the nation’s top Historically Black Universities for military-connected students, Fayetteville State University (FSU) values the service and expertise of military members and aims to support these dedicated Americans as they build a life and career in the state of North Carolina. 

As part of its commitment to supporting military-involved students, FSU offers a military credit program that recognizes and rewards the critical skills and experience students have gained through their military training and deployments. By honoring these accomplishments with degree credits, the military credit program helps military-involved students earn their degrees and transition into the workforce more quickly. 

To receive credits, military-involved students only need to submit their joint services transcript (JST) to the university. FSU’s veteran military certified officials and student advisors then review the transcript to determine the course equivalents that correspond to the student’s military experience and award them credit toward their degree. 

For example, students who helped to manage equipment and inventories may earn credits for a supply chain management course, while students who used internet technology or processed data during their time of service may earn credits toward computer science and data applications courses.

FSU strives in multiple ways to serve as a military-inclusive university. In addition to the military degree credit program, FSU offers military tuition scholarships to veterans, active-duty personnel, reservists, and spouses and dependents of military-involved personnel. These scholarships cover the full cost of tuition, ensuring that earning a college degree is accessible and affordable to those who have served our country and their dependent family members.

Honoring the service and sacrifice of military personnel reflects the values of FSU. Providing a path for military-involved students to finish their degree faster and at a lower cost means they can more quickly advance their careers and provide for themselves and their families. We are proud to give these students the recognition they deserve for their service to our country and our communities.
