Top 10 Reasons to Attend
East Georgia State College
We’re smart from the start!
Let’s Get Associated!
• One of the lowest tuition and fee rates in the USG: Coupled with student employment, The Correll Scholars Program, merit, and need-based scholarships, EGSC students generally have a lower college expense which means less student debt.
• EGSC is the first, and currently only, USG institution to offer associate’s degrees with disciplinary distinction: Students major in a disciplinary field (i.e., Business Administration and Economics) rather than “General Studies.” This is a tremendous benefit to students who wish to advance to a baccalaureate degree program because the required 18 hours in Area F are comprehensive enough to be considered a major field of study at the associate level.
• Three convenient locations: EGSC-Swainsboro (main campus) and EGSC-Statesboro are near I-16 East. EGSC-Augusta is near I-20 East.
• A comfortable transition to college: Safe, nurturing environment with small classes, abundant academic resources, diverse student life activities, and a residential option, Bobcat Villas South and West on the Swainsboro campus.
