1. Where are my classes located?

This answer can be found when you register for the class/in Banner! Check the "campus" location: Main Campus classes are face-to-face at VSU; Online Campus classes are offered through BlazeVIEW; eCore Campus classes are offered through GoVIEW.

Image of a chart. The top row reads course campus. The bottom row reads main campus, online campus, and ecore campus. Red arrows point to the columns.

2. What is the difference between SmartPath and eCore?

SmartPath courses are offered through BlazeVIEW and are taught by VSU instructors. Because SmartPath courses are housed at VSU, you have ready and easy access to instructors and advisors. Find more information about SmartPath Core by visiting our website!

eCore classes are offered through GoVIEW. eCore classes are taught by instructors all over the state of Georgia, which means you might not have access to a VSU professor through an eCore class. Find more information about eCore by visiting our website!

3. How do I log into GoVIEW?

First time logging into GoVIEW? You'll need to create your account! Select the "forgot my password" option and put in your username.

Username: first part of your VSU email address_vsu
Example: mclawson_vsu

You will receive an email with a password reset link. Follow the directions there to log into GoVIEW.

***You must be registered for an eCore class to have access to GoVIEW.

4. How do I know if the class I'm registering for is a VSU course or an eCore course?

When registering, take note of the campus location! eCore classes are clearly identified. Remember that eCore classes are offered through GoVIEW.

5. There aren't any spots left in an eCore class I want to take! What do I do?

No worries! As long as you meet the pre-reqs for the eCore class, we can override you into the course. Email blazeview@valdosta.edu to request an override.
