Saginaw Valley State University


chemistry students

At SVSU you will experience opportunities of self discovery, leadership, and growth while pursuing one of our 90 undergraduate or graduate programs. You will be enlightened to international cultures through speakers, coursework, and perhaps even a study abroad experience. Our distinguished faculty are committed to undergraduate teaching.  The value of these opportunities is enhanced by the fact that SVSU offers the lowest tuition rate of Michigan’s public universities.


SVSU is located within the Great Lakes Bay region (GLB) of Michigan and is in the center of the cities that comprise the region including Bay City, Midland and Saginaw. Our students enjoy a safe, modern campus with easy access to urban amenities and the year-round activities and festivals of the GLB region.

On Campus

Your college experience isn’t just about what you learn in the classroom – learning is also on campus, in the local community and around the world. Engagement and leadership can be formal or informal, including joining or leading a Registered Student Organization, getting involved in Alternative Breaks, or presenting research at a national conference.
