Applications for Spring 2023 are now open!

New and free Undergraduate admission process

The Path to Success Program

​Fairfax University of America (FXUA) has created the Path to Success Program (PSP), its NEW and FREE undergraduate admission process, that caters to the needs of non-traditional modern learners. The online PSP is available to all interested high school graduates or senior students (in their last year of high school) regardless of past academic performance. The PSP gives students an opportunity to learn from past experiences and build the capacities to excel at the next stage of their academic journey. The PSP provides learners with a tailored path to higher education where they can develop the skills to thrive in the 21st century and succeed in college.

Path to Success Program Structure

The PSP follows a rigorous structure that guides prospective students through clear steps starting from application submission to program completion.

1

Application

All FXUA prospective students will start by submitting an application form and additional official documentation to enter the program. The list of required documentation is described in the Path to Success Program Undergraduate Admission Requirements section below.

2

Assessment:

Student applicants will complete brief online assessments that will guide FXUA’s efforts to identify prospective students’ learning gaps across the program categories and place them in a personalized program path.

3

Placement:

Students will be placed in a tailored program path depending on their assessment scores. Our staff will meet with students individually to explain their program path and answer any questions.

4

Path:

The PSP will provide self-paced online courses allowing students a great sense of ownership to develop within seven categories: English Language (Preparatory English or ESL), Academic Writing & Research and Math. With our student-centered approach, we offer highly interactive course materials and activities that focus on self-reflection and real-life application.

Note: The required academic remediation courses must be completed prior to the last day of classes of their first semester. If applicants do not complete these courses by the scheduled deadline, they are required to pay an administrative fee of $170 per course, to continue taking the academic remediation courses into the next semester.

5

Completion:

Upon successful completion of assigned PSP categories, students will earn admission to the FXUA undergraduate degree program of their choice. In addition, students will earn micro-credentials for each category they complete and an FXUA certificate of completion.
