Fort Valley State University, along with all other University System of Georgia institutions, will move to online instruction for all courses for the remainder of the spring 2020 semester, with extremely limited exceptions. The move follows last week's decision to suspend instruction for two weeks to ensure business and instructional continuity and to allow the state to conduct an assessment of the coronavirus (COVID-19.)

FVSU students are prohibited from returning to campus until they have received detailed instructions, which will be forthcoming soon from the Student Affairs Staff. These new directives replace all previous instructions relative to removing personal items from the residence halls. Students must follow the instructions provided.

FVSU's residence halls will be closed, with minimal exceptions for students unable to return home, or who cannot find housing elsewhere. For those students who are unable to depart campus, we will make every effort to accommodate these students.

Fort Valley State's campus will remain open, with minimal staff physically on-site, to ensure continuity of services.

We will continue to practice social distancing to promote the safety of our faculty, staff and students as we all do our best to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
