VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Valdosta State University's student Enrollment is on the rise.

Fall enrollment is forecast to rise four percent over fall 2008 numbers. VSU's Admission Recruiter Ryan Hogan says the school is reaching out to other states including nearby Florida.

He says some factors contributing to the enrollment increase include lower tuition costs than many schools and new additions to campus.

"We used to grow about 100 to 200 students, but we've seen a lot bigger increase this year mainly because we have new residence halls on campus and buildings we've added," said Ryan Hogan, VSU Admissions Recruiter. "We've added new programs too, so lots of students are coming to us now."

Some of the new programs include a Master's in Communication Arts, a Doctorate of Public Administration, and an American Sign Language Degree.
