Fort Valley State University At Risk Of Losing Accreditation

Jul 19, 2017

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools says the Fort Valley State University, a historically black college in middle Georgia, has failed to comply with core requirements for accreditation.


These include improving financial control, student support services, and physical facilities. SACS also says Fort Valley is not meeting their requirements involving federal student aid funds.


The university says they’ve already begun assessing their academic and administrative functions, and have created new online systems and technology for their students to use.


The school will be reviewed again in the summer of 2018. If problems persist they could lose their accreditation.
