VSU Courses in GoVIEW
GoVIEW is the University System of Georgia collaborative online course system, and is a complement to BlazeVIEW, the online course system at Valdosta State University. Since GoVIEW is operated as a collaborative, you may be enrolled in course sections along with students from other institutions in the University System of Georgia. As an online student at VSU, you may be taking some online courses that are hosted on GoVIEW, and others that are hosted on BlazeVIEW depending on your online degree major and your level of progress in the program.
Regularly scheduled GoVIEW maintenance is the first and third Fridays of the month from 10pm Friday until 7am Saturday. The system will be offline and unavailable for use during that time.
