As an ISEP student, you can build your own program by choosing your courses from a variety of fields. Use the notes for course searching to help you find which courses are available.

Especially noteworthy are Valdosta’s programs in business, education, fine arts, speech and pathology, sports medicine and the sciences. Valdosta's observatory with 16" reflecting telescope and planetarium with Spitz-A3-P projector enhance a strong astronomy program. American studies, specifically focused on the U.S. South, are well developed in history and literature. Botany and freshwater biology offerings are supported by an extensive herbarium and field research facilities.



Exchange students will be housed in Reade Hall. Please go to the provided link for more information about the residence hall.
