Alumni Directory Project


Fairmont State Alumni Association Partners with Publishing Concepts (PCI)

Fairmont State University strives to keep our alumni connected to the school and to each other. In order to do this, Fairmont State has authorized Publishing Concepts (PCI) to launch a project to update contact information for all alumni and to create a new alumni directory.

Starting soon, you will receive e-mails, postcards, and phone calls from PCI requesting that you update your contact information. We encourage you to respond to these communications. Once PCI has collected the information, the company will compile the data and create a new alumni directory.

PCI is a trusted partner of Fairmont State University. We hope you will participate in our alumni directory project.

For common questions and concerns you can check the Frequently Asked Questions. (BELOW)

If you have any other questions, please contact Ashley Knight, Alumni Relations and Annual Giving Coordinator 304-367-4015 or by email


Frequently Asked Questions By Alumni

I received an email/postcard/phone call from a company asking for my personal information. They said they were working on a directory for the Fairmont State Alumni Association.  Is this a legitimate project, or is it a scam?

We have partnered with PCI (also known as Publishing Concepts) to produce our new alumni directory. PCI is a company located in Dallas, TX that publishes  directories for educational institutions, fraternities, sororities and military organizations across the nation. This project allows the Fairmont State Alumni Association to receive important updates to our database so we know more about our alumni and how we can better serve you and future alumni.


How do I know my information will only be used for directory purposes? 

The Fairmont State Alumni Association has a contractual agreement with PCI that states the names, addresses and information provided to PCI by the Fairmont State Alumni Association for the publication of the Directory will be held confidential by PCI, except to the extent that they are utilized in, or in the preparation of, the Directory and except as required by court order or law.  The Directory will be made available only to alumni of Fairmont State University. Upon completion of the project, PCI will return to the Fairmont State Alumni Association any and all electronic files that have been supplied by the Fairmont State Alumni Association or produced by PCI in connection with the production of the Directory.


I would like to verify and update my information. How may I do this?

If you have received a postcard or an email with a telephone number, you may call the number to speak with a dedicated representative for the Fairmont State Alumni Association project. The representative will verify all the information we have on file for you and make any updates where needed. If you have received an email with an embedded link, you may go to the online site to review your information. If you have questions, you may call PCI’s customer service desk at 1.800.982.1590.


Can anyone purchase a directory?

The Fairmont State Alumni Association Alumni Directory is available for sale only to Fairmont State University alumni.


When will I receive my directory?

The total duration of the directory project is about 12 months. Since we began the project in July 2018 the directories will be distributed in July 2019.
