Dr. James A. Anderson, FSU chancellor, and Dr. Dale McInnis, president of Richmond Community College, shake hands after signing the Memorandum of Understanding for the $10K Degree Pathway Plan.

Fayetteville State University (FSU) and Richmond Community College (RCC) signed an agreement Tuesday that will allow RichmondCC graduates to complete an online bachelor’s degree at FSU at a total cost of no more than $10,000 in out-of-pocket expenses.

The $10K Pathway Plan opens the door to affordable bachelor’s degrees in these online programs at FSU: Accounting, Birth to Kindergarten (non-teaching), Criminal Justice, Fire and Emergency Services Administration, Business Administration (General), Intelligence Studies, Nursing, Professional Studies, Psychology and Sociology. While these degree programs are fully online, FSU will provide regular face-to-face contact with program participants when needed.

Dr. James A. Anderson, FSU chancellor, and Dr. Dale McInnis, president of RichmondCC, signed the agreement during a special ceremony held at the Cole Auditorium.

“By signing this Memorandum of Understanding, President McInnis and I are promising more than affordable tuition; we are also committing ourselves and our institutions to provide the academic advisement, personal support and overall academic environment that will help our students be successful at both institutions,” Anderson said.

Anderson noted that $10,000 is a fraction of what a degree costs at many national online education providers.
