FVSU receives full accreditation following 'warning' status
Fort Valley State University has received full accreditation after being placed on a warning status.
In a message released to Fort Valley State University faculty and staff, President Larry E. Rivers announced that the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) has voted to affirm the university’s full accreditation.
“This means that our accreditation now is without qualification of any kind," Rivers said in a press release.
The SACS action came at its annual December meeting held in Dallas, Texas, on Monday and Tuesday, December 10 and 11, 2012. At the same meeting one year earlier, the organization had placed FVSU on a “warning” status. That action had been aimed at encouraging rapid resolution of specified audit concerns, including issues related to faculty credentialing, financial aid, and specified fiscal procedures.
FVSU is a member institution of the University System of Georgia and the state’s only 1890 land-grant institution.
