Welcome to the Access Office!

The Mission of the Access Office is to serve as leaders in removing physical, educational, and other barriers and creating an inclusive and diverse environment by collaborating with and motivating students, faculty, staff, and the community so that they can ensure that all VSU classrooms, events, and experiences are seamlessly accessible to all.

Our primary objective is to provide equal access to campus programs and activities for all students while upholding the academic standards of Valdosta State University.

We hope that you will find connecting with the Access Office a simple process. Our team will be happy to meet with you in a manner that works best for you (a face-to-face meeting, a phone or video phone meeting, a meeting using Skype). Many of our processes include online forms to save you time and effort, but you are always welcome to schedule a meeting if you have any questions along the way. While this process can be initiated at any time, it is recommended that students contact the Access Office as early as possible in their academic career. We would be happy to meet with students and their families during campus tours, at Open House, or Orientation if interested in meeting prior to the start of their first semester.
