Fayetteville State University
Fayetteville State University's ideal location allows students to enjoy a close, personal community that is small enough to invite participation, yet large enough to offer a diverse array of cultural, social and recreational activities.
Originally established in 1867, the school became Fayetteville State University in 1969 by an act of the North Carolina General Assembly and joined the UNC system in 1972. The University has a student body of over 6,300 students and offers over 40 undergraduate programs and 23 graduate programs. In addition, FSU offers one doctorate degree in educational leadership.

FSU first established its presence on Fort Bragg in 1973. Since then, the FSU Fort Bragg-Pope Army Airfield Center has continued to provide educational opportunities for all military personnel, their dependents, and citizens of the surrounding communities. The focus is to “Target & Achieve” the specific needs and requirements unique to the military. Students may take a minimum of three semester hours or a maximum of nine semester hours credit each term, depending upon personal obligations. All courses are taught after standard business hours to afford greater flexibility and opportunity for learning.
FSU provides a specialized orientation session for all of its military affiliated students. In addition to the content provided to traditional students, FSU also includes topics such as transfer credit for military training, benefits enrollment, and the campus resources available on base at Fort Bragg.
