High School Counselors

Counselor Visit Day

Counselor Visit Day gives school counselors the opportunity to visit Georgia Southern’s Statesboro and Armstrong Campuses. Counselors participate in information sessions and campus tours on each campus and have the opportunity to network with Admissions staff and students. Lunch and snacks are provided for all-day participants, as well as transportation between campuses and limited same-day transportation from Atlanta. Participants from Augusta and Jacksonville will have the opportunity to share their information if they are interested in car pooling with other participants from the area.

Counselor Visit Day is the perfect opportunity for you to visit and tour our campuses and interact with current students and staff.

Registration is required.

Staying on Course Requirements

In order to be admitted to Georgia Southern your students must meet the minimum course requirements as listed on the Staying On Course document issued by the Georgia Board of Regents.

The Required High School Curriculum (RHSC) is the cornerstone of the University System of Georgia (USG)
admission policy. The Staying on Course document reflects the minimum high school unit requirements for each of the academic subject areas. Students should pursue a challenging and rigorous high school curriculum to be best prepared for a successful college experience and should consult with their high school counselor to determine appropriate
coursework. The course titles and numbers used in this document reflect those utilized by the Georgia Department
of Education. Consideration is also given to similar courses for students attending private or out-of-state high
schools. In addition to the courses listed on the Staying on Course document, other AP and IB courses, as well as college-level courses completed through dual enrollment, may be considered in the appropriate subject area.

Please reach out to your admissions counselor for more information.

Border State Waivers

The University System of Georgia has approved out-of-state tuition differential waivers to residents of Alabama, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee for the Armstrong Campus in Savannah and the Liberty Campus in Hinesville. Learn more at

Out-of-State Fee Waiver Scholarship

The Out-of-State Fee Waiver Scholarship is a highly competitive academic scholarship that allows select out-of-state students to attend Georgia Southern without paying out-of-state fees. Such fees, which are common at state universities throughout the country, are assessed because students who live in another state haven’t supported the institution with tax dollars. The State of Georgia recognizes the value of inviting high-achieving students to study and earn degrees here regardless of where they live, allowing Georgia Southern to award a limited number of out-of-state fee waivers. Full and partial scholarships are available. Learn more at
