Minimum Residence Requirements


For an associate degree at least one semester’s work (at least 16 credit hours) and at least 8 of the last 16 hours in residence are required.

For a BA/BS degree, at least one year’s work in residence is required, and one semester of it must be in the senior year. A “year of residence” must represent not less than 30 hours credit, and a semester is defined as a minimum of 15 hours credit. Exception is made in the case of students who have completed three years of required work at Fairmont State and who decide to complete the senior year by substituting approved credit earned subsequently in a college of medicine or dentistry.
