Academic Advising

Mission Statement

At Valdosta State University, advising is a collaborative, mandatory process designed to help students

  • succeed academically,
  • develop an appropriate educational plan leading to graduation,
  • focus on their life beyond the university, and
  • play a responsible and proactive role in their own education.

Advisors will assist students in decision-making by

  • providing timely and accurate information,
  • making appropriate referrals to campus resources, and
  • encouraging students to use available technology.
