FVSU admission officials see increase in applications

FORT VALLEY, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Fort Valley State University admission officials are seeing a huge increase in the number of applications they are receiving.

Calandra Wright, the Admissions Director at FVSU, tells 41NBC this time last year they only had about 500 applicants. This year, they’ve already received more than 3,000. 

She adds FVSU recently tried new strategies to attract more students, including handing out paper applications.

“At a college fair or at a high school, with a recruiter there, the person-to-person transaction allows them to get the process started, then they can move forward because once we have their application, we can correspond with them,” Wright said. 

Wright says the majority of the applications they get are paper applications because students may not have internet access outside of school.
