“FVSU’s Open House is a great opportunity to become intimately engaged with FVSU,” said Calandra Wright, the university’s recruitment and admissions director. “It is a unique opportunity for our visitors to experience FVSU and learn about our academic offerings, financial aid packages and neighbor waivers for Alabama, South Carolina and Florida residents.”
Applicants can speak with representatives from FVSU’s offices of admissions, campus life, career services, military science and academic areas. Professors and deans from the colleges of Arts and Sciences; Education; and Agriculture, Family Sciences and Technology will share details about degree offerings. Students who bring a sealed transcript and test scores and meet FVSU’s admissions standards receive an admissions decision on sight.
“Another feature of our Spring Open House is that students will get the opportunity to hear student testimonies and learn what it means to be a Wildcat,” said Stevie Lawrence interim associate provost and vice president for student success and enrollment management.
FVSU financial aid counselors will give tips about completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, forms needed to send to the financial aid office, and how to use the Banner Web system to approve financial aid.
