Freshman (BOR Student Affairs Policy 184.108.40.206)
A student who is still completing a high school education, or has received a high school diploma and has not taken college or university courses, or those who plan to transfer to a four-year institution to pursue a baccalaureate degree, is considered a freshman for purposes of admission to East Georgia State College. Applicants transferring into EGSC with less than 30 hours of transferable college credit will be required to meet freshmen requirements to be guaranteed admission.
Pay the non-refundable $20 application fee online or submit an acceptable waiver.
We accept official application fee waivers from College Board, ACT, and NACAC
Have your guidance counselor send us your official high school transcript.
East Georgia State College accepts mailed, emailed, or e-transcripts that come directly from the high school. *Faxes are accepted, but they are considered unofficial. To process transcripts, we must recalculate your GPA based on the Required High School Curriculum (as mandated by University System of Georgia policy), so it may appear lower than you originally anticipated because we do not factor in classes like art, PE, theater, etc. East Georgia State does not add or remove weight for accelerated courses.
Submit your senior schedule.
If you are still enrolled in high school, we will need to review all courses you are taking during your Senior year of high school to be sure you are on track to graduate. Typically this will be included on your high school transcript, if it is not simply have your counselor send that information to our office. The HSGPA is calculated only on the Required High School Curriculum (RHSC) units required for all students.
Provide Verification of Lawful Presence in the United States.
Applicants must provide evidence of lawful presence in the United States to qualify for in-state tuition classification. *Students who are International or are considered undocumented must submit a Lawful Presence Opt-Out form verifying that they understand they will be charged out of state tuition.
Submit any SAT/ACT score reports (SAT Code - 5200, ACT Code - 0799) Used for placement purposes only.
Freshman applicants are asked to submit any and all test scores they may have in order to determine placement in Learning Support courses, however test scores are not required for admissibility. If you submit scores and then take the test again, you may submit the new scores for us to review for placement re-evaluation. Placement in the Learning Support co-requisite courses are based on the highest test scores that we receive and must be in the same test (Accuplacer, SAT, or ACT) to be "super scored".
Provide proof of current Immunizations as well as EGSC Medical Entrance Form.
Request transcripts from previous colleges/technical institutions.
If you were previously Dual Enrolled while enrolled in high school, you must also submit transcripts from any and ALL previous colleges/technical institutions.
Check your status online.
This status will reflect whatever we have in our records at that exact moment. You will be aware of our admissions decision as soon as it is made without having to wait for an admissions letter.
