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.


The Admissions and Welcome Center welcomes all future Falcons. You will be introduced to our unique academic programs, meet faculty, visit our residence halls, and see our cozy hilltop campus. We are committed to providing you a transformative education and resources to succeed. When you are on campus, you will get to experience being a Falcon, and see our beautiful Falcon Center (Student Union). Please select your preference on whether you would like to come in person to view our campus or schedule from the comfort of your home.


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..
