Transfer Student

Transfer Student (BOR Student Affairs Policy

An applicant who has enrolled previously in any accredited college or university and has 30 or more semester hours of transferable college credit, and has graduated or would have graduated from high school within the last five years is considered a transfer student. Because applicants with less than 30 semester hours of transferable credit will need to meet freshmen requirements, the high school transcript requirement will not be waived until a full evaluation of all previous college coursework is completed.

Admissions Checklist:

  1. Apply online
  2. Pay the non-refundable $20 application fee online.
  3. Request transcripts from previous college, university, or technical school(s)
    You must submit transcripts from any and ALL previous colleges/technical institutions, must be in good academic standing, and be eligible to return to the institution last attended. Official transcripts are required whether or not the applicant wishes to receive transfer credit. *Students placed on academic suspension, exclusion, or dismissal from their previous institution will be ineligible to attend East Georgia State College UNTIL they have sat out their exclusion or dismissal period.

  4. Submit official high school transcript or GED, HiSET, or TASC scores. (If having less than 30 transferrable hours)
    East Georgia State College accepts mailed, emailed, or e-transcripts that come directly from the high school or testing agency. *Faxes are accepted, but they are considered unofficial. The high school transcript needs to indicate type of diploma received and date of graduation based on Section of BOR Student Affairs Policy Manual. Certificates of performance or special education diplomas are not acceptable. Applicants who have satisfactorily completed the GED, HiSET, or TASC high school equivalency diploma need only submit an official score report. 
  5. 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.
