Online Education

Welcome to Fort Valley State University’s (FVSU) Online degree programs and thank you for your interest in continuing your education at our University. Fort Valley State University’s Online Education is offered through the College of Graduate Studies and Extended Education. Online Education is used as a vehicle to reach out and serve a segment of traditional learners, the adult student population including graduate Students seeking to pursue various studies, former college students who need to continue their education in order to acquire a baccalaureate degree, or employees/employers seeking professional development.

Online and hybrid courses provide amazing flexibility in allowing you to continue your education without traveling to campus several times per week.  This saves you time, travel costs, and fit nicely into your already busy life!  It will be very helpful for you to be self-motivated and disciplined to ensure that your assignments and course requirements are completed on time. Please take a moment to review the remainder of this message to ensure you start off the semester on the right track!
