The primary purpose of the collaborative program between East Georgia State College and Augusta University is to accommodate students in Augusta and the surrounding area, who do not meet freshman admissions requirements at AU, and provide them with an opportunity to earn 30 credit hours while simultaneously preparing them for transfer into a bachelor’s degree program at Augusta University.
All applicants not meeting AU’s admission criteria will be considered for admission to EGSC.
EGSC will provide courses to make up any Regents’ High School Curriculum deficiencies and core curriculum courses. Course offerings are based on student demand and faculty availability.
Students are enrolled through EGSC and generally take 12 hours per semester. AU will offer academic and administrative space on its Summerville campus to accommodate an average of 30 classes per semester for students enrolled in the program.
Applications of those not meeting AU’s admissions criteria will be forwarded to EGSC, who will then follow up by phone to facilitate enrollment at EGSC for interested applicants.
Following the completion of 30 credit hours in the program, those with a cumulative Grade Point Average of 2.2 or higher can opt to transfer into a bachelor’s degree program at AU. More detailed information will be emailed to you once you have met the criteria and have notified EGSC of your desire to transfer.
Students will pay EGSC tuition and fees, which includes AU’s mandatory and elective fees for amenities such as the University Wellness Center, computer labs, student life and more.
EGSC currently offers a waiver of out-of-state tuition for residents of bordering South Carolina counties (Aiken and Edgefield County), attending the EGSC-Augusta campus.
EGSC uses this same collaborative model to transition students on its Statesboro campus to Georgia Southern University.
EGSC and AU are working together to promote the statewide Complete College Georgia goals, including providing students with a convenient and affordable access point and an opportunity to earn 30 credit hours while simultaneously preparing for transfer into a bachelor’s degree program.
