  1.     New students submit the online Residence Hall Application and $50 application fee.
  2.     Office of Housing and Residence Life checks to make sure that student has been admitted to East Georgia State College and has completed immunization form.
  3.     Student completes Criminal Background Investigation (CBI) Consent Form and returns it.
  4.     CBI information is pulled from contracted vendor and submitted to CBI committee for decision.

ALL EGSC fees must be paid in full before student may move in, including tuition/fees, housing and meal plan charges. NOTE: Financial Aid money CAN BE used to help with housing and meal plan charges, but NOT with application fee and deposit.
