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 $20 non-refundable application fee or submit an acceptable waiver.
We accept official application fee waivers from ACT, College Board, and NACAC. Your guidance counselor can provide the ACT and NACAC waiver or you can click here to print your SAT waiver from CollegeBoard.
Request your official high school transcript.
East Georgia 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 (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.
Students who have participated in Move On When Ready/Dual Enrollment or another dual-enrollment program while also in high school are required to send transcripts from all colleges attended, even if the courses are listed on the high school transcript. Earned college credit will not be awarded without these official transcripts. Additionally, failure to submit these transcripts could result in delays in financial aid or the ability to alter your schedule once enrolled at East Georgia.
Official formats for receiving transcripts include:
College: Parchment, National Student Clearinghouse, Mail
High School: GAfutures, Parchment, and Mail
*Faxed documents and copies provided by the student are NOT considered official and will not be used for admission purposes. Courses from one institution that are listed on another high school and/or college transcript will not substitute for an official transcript. Prior educational experience may not be omitted from an application package.
Submit your senior schedule.
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.
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.
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.
Provide proof of current Immunizations. Students who affirm that these immunization requirements conflict with their religious beliefs may request an exemption via the immunization form. Students with religious exemptions are subject to exclusion from campus in the event of an outbreak of a disease for which immunization is required. Students who are enrolled in fully online distance learning programs may also request an exemption from immunization requirements as long as they only enroll in fully online courses.
- (Optional) Submit official SAT or ACT score reports from the testing agency (SAT Code: 5200 / ACT code: 0799) Test scores are not required for acceptance, however all applicants are asked to submit any and all test scores they may have in order to determine placement or exemption in Learning Support courses. Placement or exemption in Learning Support courses are based on the highest test scores that we receive and must be in the same test (Accuplacer, SAT, or ACT).
