This collaborative program between East Georgia State College and Georgia Southern University is designed to accommodate students in Statesboro and the surrounding area who do not meet freshman admissions requirements at Georgia Southern University.

Students who enroll at the Statesboro location get to experience the unique combination of East Georgia State College - Statesboro’s (EGSC-S) small, personalized academic learning environment and the large university student services and resources of Georgia Southern University (GS), while saving a lot of money.

In 2021, the Bobcat to Eagle (B2E) program was developed to provide an easy transfer pathway directly to Georgia Southern. EGSC students can take classes on the Statesboro campus, and following the completion of 30 credit hours in the program, those with a cumulative Grade Point Average of 2.5 or higher can opt to transfer into a bachelor’s degree program at GS. However, students that attend the Statesboro location are able to transfer to any other institution and are not required to be a part of the B2E program.
