Account Access for Students
Gain access to your VSU account and to resources you need to be successful in and out of the classroom.
These guides are designed for students who are not also employed by the university. If you are a student assistant, graduate assistant, or work study student, please use our employee guide instead.
Let's Get Started!
Using the username and password you set up when you were admitted into the university, you can log into the MyVSU Portal. This portal is a fully-integrated platform designed to serve the needs of VSU students by offering a single login for most VSU services along with information critical to your academic success and engagement in campus activities. The responsive design is mobile-friendly for students on the go!
If you do not know your username or password, please visit our Password Reset Tool at iforgot.valdosta.edu and select I Don't Know My Password.
The first time you access MyVSU, you will be asked to set up two-factor authentication to protect your account. We would strongly recommend utilizing the Microsoft Authenticator mobile app, as it streamlines the experience with 1-click authentication.
Valdosta State University uses the BlazeVIEW learning management system to provide the online learning environment for many VSU courses. BlazeVIEW supported courses range from web-enhanced courses where traditional face-to-face instruction is supplemented with web features such as syllabi and lecture notes, to courses that are taught completely online with no on-campus attendance requirements.
To access BlazeVIEW, click the BlazeVIEW button on the top-right corner of MyVSU. Please note that students will only see individual classes in BlazeVIEW beginning on the day the class begins. Students who add a class after the first day of classes will see their class in BlazeVIEW within 2 business days of registering.

The university’s upgraded wireless network provides access to a faster and more reliable connectivity throughout the entire campus including all nine residence halls, academic and administrative buildings, auditoriums and dining spaces. Approximately 1600 access points (AP) were placed in high-density usage areas to support coverage. Additionally, advanced caching capabilities were implemented to support super-fast iOS updates and high-definition (HD) media streaming (i.e. Netflix and YouTube).
To connect, select VSU-WiFi in the list of wireless networks on your device. Then, log in with your MyVSU username and password. Specialized devices like gaming consoles may need to be registered or need settings modifications. For more information, please visit our VSU-WiFi guides.
