Fort Valley State University is a historically Black educational institution in Georgia that enrolls about 3,600 students. The university has entered into a partnership agreement with Georgia Military College that will allow students who have completed an associate’s degree at Georgia Military College to transfer all of their credits to apply towards a bachelor’s degree at Fort Valley State. African Americans make up more than 40 percent of the student body at Georgia Military College.
Ivelaw Lloyd Griffith, president of Fort Valley State University, said that “not only will young men and women be able to complete their baccalaureate degrees at Fort Valley State University, but I know some of them also will want to pursue their master’s degrees with us. I’m delighted that we are building this partnership with Georgia Military College, which has a splendid reputation for making the dreams of young men and women come true.”
