2 Ways to Visit, In Person & Virtually
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. 
That’s why we offer two visit experiences – in person or virtual.


Our cozy, safe campus has reopened to students and families who wish to learn more about Fairmont State University. Our campus visits are far more than just a simple swing around campus. Fairmont State makes your campus tour, well, your campus tour. It’s all about you. We tailor your visit to suit your needs and give you a clear view of what your college experience will be like. You’ll chat one-on-one with an Admissions Counselor, meet current students and you can talk to teacher-mentors in any area of study in which you’re interested.


Choosing a college is a big decision. There are so many choices – Big or small? Public university or private school? Far away or near home? – sometimes it helps to get a broader perspective of the entire process. 
 That’s why Fairmont State University has put together Bird’s-Eye View, a party for students just like you. This event is for Rising Seniors!


On-The-Spot days are available to provide the assistance you’re looking for!
  • Have you applied and need help with your next steps?
  • Want to earn a degree, and don’t know where to start?
  • Attended college but didn’t gradate and need to know what to do to complete your degree?
  • Need to turn in documents to complete your admissions file?
If you have questions about attending Fairmont State University this fall – we’re here to help!
Sign up for the On-The-Spot appointment and we’ll make sure we get you on the right path to join the Falcon Family this fall!


We know not everyone can make it to campus, so we’ve created ways for you to get the information you need from the comfort of your home.

Can’t come to campus? We’ll bring 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.
