Welcome to Valdosta State, a comprehensive university - meaning we offer associate, bachelor, graduate, and doctoral degrees - that serves the heart of South Georgia in one of its largest cities.
We love palm trees, live oaks, fountains, and sunny days on the Front Lawn. Our students love hands on experience, individual faculty interaction, and unique experiences like undergraduate research in the Florida Keys. Settled just fifteen minutes above the Florida state line, Valdosta State University offers in-state tuition to residents of Florida, as well as South Carolina, Alabama, and Tennessee.
Valdosta State offers the best of both worlds — the extensive academic, cultural, and social opportunities of a major university and the small classes and close personal attention found at smaller institutions.
