RCC & FSU Sign 10K Degree Pathway Agreement
Robeson Community College is pleased to announce it has partnered with Fayetteville State University. RCC graduates with an Associate Degree can now complete a four-year degree at FSU online with the total average “out of pocket” cost of $10,000, including the Associate Degree.
“We are excited about this new student opportunity, and we thank FSU for their partnership with RCC in our commitment to student success,” said V. Scott Lamm, Dean, University Transfer and Health Sciences at RCC.
In a continued effort to seek growth, RCC looks for partnerships with four-year universities to provide RCC graduates’ affordable choices and opportunities in higher education.
According to Dr. Patrena Elliott, Vice President for Instruction for RCC, “Many of our students desire to further their education beyond their Associates close to home. Depending on their program choice, some seek out online degree programs. Our collaboration today provides an additional and affordable pathway for them.”
To participate in this program, students must be a North Carolina resident and have filled out a FASA application each year.
“We are excited about the 10K Degree Pathway partnership with Fayetteville State University. It is yet another tool available to RCC students wishing to complete their bachelor’s degree online. This option will save students both time and money while supporting their future academic and career success,” said Melissa Singler, president of RCC.
RCC and FSU held a virtual check signing event to signify the new relationship between the colleges.
“This partnership creates a pathway for North Carolinians to follow their dreams and earn a four-year degree regardless of their financial situation. I am extremely proud to be part of the solution,” said Dr. Lee Brown, Interim Provost & Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs at Fayetteville State University.
