Welcome to the Graduate School

Converse Hall, home of Valdosta State University’s Graduate School, in Valdosta, Georgia.

**The Graduate School is currently operating remotely.  While we are not physically on campus, our work continues remotely in a modified format and our goal is to respond within one business day.  Our phone access will be limited, so we encourage you to email inquiries (gradschool@valdosta.edu) so we may answer more quickly.  

We are still processing new applications and documents, sending completed files for review, and continuing our operations.  We encourage you to submit documents and inquiries by email as much as possible (recommendations, supplemental requirements, etc. can all be sent as attachments) and use official electronic transcript delivery when available. We will alert applicants to any deadline changes if they occur.

More information on VSU's status and response is available here: www.valdosta.edu/health-advisory**

TEST SCORE NOTICE: We are working with departments that require test scores to establish guidelines for moving forward given the difficulty in testing due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Guidelines vary by program and we are working to post the updates for individual programs on their pages.
