Application Status Check

Thank you for applying to The Graduate School at Valdosta State University! Please complete the following steps in their exact order to check the status of your application for your graduate program.  

Please be advised: VSU does not require applicants to provide their social security numbers (SSNs) on their applications, however, applications without SSNs may have difficulty accessing the information in the status check portal. Please contact the Graduate School for assistance regarding this issue.


Step One: Know your student ID number. (This number begins with the digits "870"). If you do not know your student ID number, please use the instructions in the ID Lookup link to find this information. This ID number is also located at the bottom of all official correspondence with The Graduate School office, such as acknowledgement letters, etc.

Step Two: Set your account password. All new users must set their own password prior to logging into the portal for the first time. To set your password, please follow the steps provided in the Password Utility link.

Step Three: Using your student ID number and your account password from the previous steps, enter your information in the appropriate fields in the Status Check portal login screen.

** If you are misdirected to the undergraduate portal, simply click on the "Return to Student Services Menu" link and proceed to Step Four. **

Step Four: Once you have logged into the status check portal, click on the Student & Financial Aid tab at the top of the screen.  Please note: you may be asked to validate your campus alert selection or address first. On the Student & Financial Aid menu, please select Graduate School Information; this item is located near the upper-middle area of the menu list. Then click on View Graduate Application. 

The portal is a work in progress and we will continue working to streamline the application experience.


Should you have any problems logging in to check the status of your application, please contact The Graduate School at or at 229-333-5694.
