WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM 18 UCW November 22-28, 2023 FTCC offers ways for students to save on tuition by DR. CHRISTOPHER THRASHER Students pursuing a bachelor's degree can save drastically on tuition costs and student loans by taking the first two years of study at FTCC. Our transfer counselors can assist in planning the best transfer pathway to achieve your goals. FTCC and FSU Keen Scholarship An exciting partnership exists between FTCC and Fayetteville State University. e FSU-FTCC Keen Scholarship, in honor of former FTCC President Dr. J. Larry Keen, assists with financial relief in cover- ing tuition costs at Fayetteville State. Eligible students must have earned an associate degree from FTCC, have a minimum GPA of at least 3.0, and meet the requirements for admission to FSU. For the 2024-2025 academic year, students must apply for this scholarship by March 31, 2024. For more information about the FSU- FTCC Keen Scholarship, please con- tact Brittany Mundy (FSU Academic Advisor for FTCC) at mundyb@ faytechcc.edu or 910-486-7455. e Guaranteed Admissions Program is a program that ensures students who graduate from FTCC with an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree and have met all requirements are able to transfer to any North Carolina public university with junior status. e Carolina Student Transfer Excellence Program is a partnership between the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and commu- nity colleges in North Carolina that provides transfer opportunities for talented low- and moderate-income students. Admission into profession- al programs at UNC-Chapel Hill is competitive, and all students are not guaranteed acceptance. Admission to UNC-Chapel Hill through Under- graduate Studies is guaranteed upon completion of the AA or AS degrees. C-STEP is an all-encompassing program that helps students gain extensive knowledge of the campus, meet key individuals who will be of aid when they arrive, and, more importantly, provide them an oppor- tunity to learn and grow with like- minded individuals who become far more than peers.
