Transfer Students Impact

Transfer Students

If you’re considering transferring from another school, Fairmont State University understands students like you—students who take control of their education…and their future.

We understand that you require a quality education without the high price tag of a private school. But you also want to learn in a place that "gets" you, with faculty and staff who listen to your needs. 

You’re the kind of student we love. You take control of your education and not only demand quality and affordability, but you want academic programs that lead to great careers.
