Transfer Student (BOR Student Affairs Policy 126.96.36.199)
An applicant who has enrolled previously in any accredited college or university and has 30 semester hours or more of transferable college credit and 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.
Guaranteed Admission: Transfer applicants with 30 semester hours or more of transferable college credit AND are in good academic standing at their prior institution will be guaranteed admission after submitting an application, application fee and all official college transcripts. Applicants with less than 30 hours of transferable college credit will also need to meet freshmen requirements to be guaranteed admission. See below for specific documents for admission and registration.
Transfer applicants need to submit the following documents:
Official College Transcript(s)
- Transcripts from each college, university or technical school attended.
- Applicants must be eligible to return to the institution they last attended.
- Applicants must be in good academic standing.
- Applicants with less than 30 transferable hours of credit must meet freshman admissions requirements (BOR Student Affairs Policy 188.8.131.52)
- High school transcripts (If having less than 30 transferrable hours)
- Required immunization records and EGSC medical entrance form
- Lawful Presence documentation
Students that are placed on exclusion or dismissal from their previous institution will be ineligible for Financial Aid and are ineligible to attend East Georgia State College UNTIL they have sat out their exclusion or dismissal period.
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. View the list of courses accepted through the BOR/TCSG articulation.
