Account Access for Employees

This section is designed for employees of the university, including, but not limited to, the following groups:
    • Faculty
    • Staff
    • Graduate Assistants
    • Student Assistants
    • Work Study Students

Step 1: Determining your VSU ID number

Every employee at the university has a unique VSU ID number that begins with 870. You will need this number in order to retrieve your username and password in the next step. If you do not know your VSU ID number, refer to the VSU ID Lookup Guide.

 

Step 2: Determining your VSU username and password

Once you have determined your VSU ID number, retrieve your VSU username and set your initial password by using the Password Management Tool. Your VSU email address will be the username you retrieved followed by @valdosta.edu.

For example, if your username is:

johndoe

Your email address would be:

johndoe@valdosta.edu

 

Step 3: Access VSU electronic services

To access your accounts, click the MyVSU link on the top-right corner of Valdosta State University web pages. The password you set can be used to access a number of VSU electronic services that you will need to complete your job duties. Please note that while the password is the same for each of the following services, the username will differ as listed below:

  • Email (Office 365) - Please note that you will need to log in with your full email address as your username. Access email, calendars and contacts. 
  • Online Classes (BlazeVIEW) - Use the username you located in step 2. Post or access online course content such as syllabi, discussion boards and assignments.
  • Registration (Banner) - Please note that you will need to log in with the VSU ID number you acquired in step 1 as your user ID. Faculty and some employees in other roles will use this to access proof rolls and enter grades.

Step 4: Set up a computer logon account

View the Guide on Creating a Computer Login for steps on creating an account to use for logging in campus computers. Please note that you will need to perform these steps on an office computer, rather than on a computer in a computer lab or smart classroom.

 

Step 5: Connect to VSU Wireless

Visit our VSU Wireless Webpage for information on accessing the wireless network on your laptops, tablets, and other mobile devices. This will allow them to connect to the Internet when you bring them to campus.

 

Step 6: Using VoIP (Office Telephones)

For any questions in using you office telephone, refer to the VoIP Quick Start Guide which provides information on how to operate your VoIP phone and use Jabber (IM). Additional VoIP resources are available on the Telecommunications Webpage.

 

Step 7: Get assistance

  • Faculty and staff are eligible to purchase Work-at-Home Software through our provider, SRS.
    • Please note that all VSU faculty, staff, and students are eligible for 5 free copies of Microsoft Office for computers and 5 copies for mobile devices. As a result, a purchase of Microsoft Office through SRS should not be necessary. Our Microsoft Advantage guide offers steps on claiming your free copies.
