Fort Valley State University  

Online Education Overview

Hello and welcome to FVSU!

It is possible that you may enroll in a class that uses online course materials, such as the syllabus, calendar, quizzes, or supplementary reading and visuals. Or, especially if you are a non-traditional student (someone who cannot always come to campus due to job or family responsibilities or different needs), you may take a class that is fully online or meets on campus once a week.

If you have been admitted and have paid your fees, you may enter into your online courses on first day of class. Here is how to log in:

  • The Brightspace by D2L username is the same as your FVSU email ID before the “@” sign. For example, would be jsmith1 for the user name.
  • Your password is the same as your PIN Number for accessing Banner Web.
  • If you do not have your FVSU Student Email account, you can retrieve it from Banner Web under the Personal Information Link. If you do not have your Banner Pin, then you can retrieve it also from Banner Web (forgot password).
  • Once you have retrieved your user ID and password, you can go to to log in to your FVSU Online Brightspace by D2L courses.
    If your password is still not working; please click the “Forgot Password” Link and you will receive a password reset link in your student email.
  • PLEASE NOTE: You may contact The D2L DHC (Help Center) to have your password reset at
  • Need your password? Students need to select the “Forgot password” link on the D2L page and then check their wildcat email for the password reset link.

Recently enacted federal regulations requiring enforcement of state laws regarding the delivery of distance education degrees, programs and courses to students whose physical presence is in a state other than Georgia may limit Fort Valley State University’s ability to offer online opportunities to these students. If you wish to enroll in one of our online offerings and are located in a state other than Georgia, please inquire before enrolling to determine if we have acquired permission to offer online courses in your state. You may email your inquiry to (Please note that this email address is exclusively for questions regarding state approval of online offerings. Other types of inquiries should be sent to the academic department offering the online courses).
