Fairmont State turns opportunity, passion, and hard work into excellence in a vibrant, close-knit campus community where students and teachers become your friends for life. Here, you’ll enjoy the opportunities offered by a comprehensive state university combined with the personal attention and campus atmosphere you’d expect from a small, private school. Being the “biggest” or “most exclusive” school has never been our goal. We just want to be the school that prepares hard-working, passionate students like you for a lifetime of success.

SCHEDULE A VISIT

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed all our lives, but one thing that will never change is Fairmont State University’s commitment to providing you a transformative education and resources to succeed.

As you may know, our cozy, safe campus is closed to visitors. That’s why we’ve created a video tour – you can’t come to campus (yet), so we’re bringing the campus to you. A student tour guide will take you around our picturesque hilltop campus, and open a window into what life is like as a Falcon. You’ll visit residence halls, the Falcon Center (the hub of activities on campus), athletic facilities, the quad, and everywhere in between.  

FINANCIAL AID

When it comes to determining “value,” you have to look beyond the bottom line. Fairmont State University not only has one of the lowest tuition rates in the state, but because we have such stellar outcomes, our value is also unmatched.
Fairmont State University only reviews transferable credit from regionally accredited institutions and institutions with national accreditation that is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education for acceptance as credit in our academic programs. The most current listing of sanctioned accrediting bodies can be found at www.ed.gov..
