International Mailing Options

NOTE: Regular mail means sending documents through the United States Postal Service (USPS) , and not through private companies like FedEx, UPS (United Parcel Service), or DHL. There will be no tracking information available for items mailed through USPS, nor can we give an accurate timeframe on when to expect your documents. Students interested in using either FedEx, UPS, or DHL can request these mailing services by following the instructions for UEMS.

How To Receive Documents through regular mail:

  • If you are an incoming student, you will get an e-mail from the international student advisor, notifying you of your acceptance to VSU. Incoming graduate students may get an e-mail or their acceptance letter directly from the graduate school. If this is the case, please contact the iss@valdosta.edu.

    • E-mail iss@valdosta.edu with your full mailing address. 

      • Your full legal name and include any or all of the applicable information:Street Number, Street Address, PO BOX number or Apartment number, Town and or City, State and or Province, Country and Postal Code
