Benefits and Compensation

Fort Valley State University offers a comprehensive benefit package to full-time employees working 30  or more hours per week on a regular basis. The benefits package is designed to meet the needs of FVSU employees and family members and includes coverage for medical, dental, vision, life and AD&D, and much more. The program is administered by the Office of Human Resources and the University System of Georgia. For more information about the current offerings, please visit the USG Benefits website.

As an institution of higher education, FVSU believes in providing educational opportunities to its employees through the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP). After 6 months of continuous, full-time employment, eligible FVSU employees may qualify for a waiver of tuition and fees when attending a USG institution. To apply for this benefit, employees must submit the TAP application to the Office of Human Resources. Applications deadlines are 4/15, 7/15 and 11/15. All applications must be received prior to enrollment in classes in a subsequent term. For more information about the TAP program, visit the USG website.

Compensation for faculty and staff is distributed on a bi-weekly and monthly pay schedule. Click here to view and/or download a copy of the 2018 payroll calendar.
