Admissions Impact


The Best of Both Worlds

At Fairmont State University, you get all the benefits of a state university – hands-on learning experiences, academic programs that lead to in-demand careers, and an exciting campus life experience – combined with the best aspects of going to a smaller private school – small class sizes, a cozy, safe campus, and caring teacher-mentors.
