  3. Have your guidance counselor send us your official high school transcript. EGSC accepts mailed, faxed, emailed, or e-transcripts that come directly from the high school. To process transcripts, we must recalculate your GPA based on the required high school curriculum, so it may appear lower than you originally anticipated because we do not factor in classes like Art, Drama, Theater, etc.  *Students that do not have a high school diploma can submit a copy of their GED score report
  4. Tell us what classes you are taking during your Senior year. We have to review a list of all courses you are taking during your Senior year of high school if you are still enrolled. This is to be sure you are on track to complete the required high school curriculum. 
  5. Send us official copies of your SAT/ACT scores from the testing agency (SAT Code - 5200, ACT Code - 0799). Although we do not require SAT/ACT scores for admission purposes, we encourage you to submit the scores if you took either test, as this could exempt you from certain portions of the entrance exam, provided they meet required minimum scores.  Get more information about the entrance exam. You are allowed to print out an official SAT score report online
  6. Request transcripts from previous colleges/technical institutions. Transcripts must be sent from any and ALL previous colleges / universities as well as any and ALL previous technical institutions, including those taken as a Dual Enrollment/MOWR Student (contact the Registrar's Office at your previous college/technical institutions to send an official transcript). Failure to report a previous institution may result in your denial/dismissal from East Georgia State and you will not receive any Financial Assistance. Transcripts will not be deemed official if sent via fax or if student has "In Progress" grades at another institution. Those that attended a technical school and earned Hope hours are required to submit a HOPE verification form.
    • The TCSG-USG agreement specifies 27 general education courses that are guaranteed to transfer between SACSCOC-accredited institutions. Course work taken at two-year Technical Colleges which are accredited through the Commission on Colleges and part of the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) will be accepted in transfer as stipulated in the articulation agreement between the Board of Regents (BOR) of the University System of Georgia and the TCSG.
