FHSU is the leading forward-thinking, entrepreneurial university of the Midwest. We have an enrollment of more than 15,000 students and offer certificate and degree programs at the associate, bachelor’s and master’s levels through 31 academic departments (we also offer a Doctorate of Nursing Practice degree). We attract goal-oriented students who want premier learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom combined with extraordinary one-to-one attention and support.
Our professors are outstanding mentor-teachers who motivate students to develop their unique talents. Our students not only graduate with a deep appreciation of knowledge, professional skills, and confidence, but they also have a competitive edge upon graduation – over 95% of FHSU students find a job or placement in graduate school after graduation.
Fort Hays State’s cozy, tree-filled campus is located in Hays, Kansas (on I-70, halfway between Kansas City and Denver). FHSU is a welcoming community in the heart of historic Hays, a community that celebrates its frontier roots and its modern sensibility – coffee shops, one-of-a-kind restaurants, shopping, and a vibrant arts scene.
