Advisement Information

Once you have been accepted to Georgia Southern University you will receive a credit evaluation detailing what courses will transfer into our institution. For more detailed information about what specific classes will transfer, please use the Registrar’s Transfer Equivalency Tool.

 

The Advisement Process:

1. Be accepted to Georgia Southern.
2. Register for SOAR (Orientation).
3. Complete the mandatory Pre-Advising Course (including the Student Scheduling & Preference Form).
4. Your advisor will build your schedule and you will receive it at your orientation session. 
5. Meet with your advisor after SOAR as needed.

Hear more about the advisement process from Jennifer Syno, Director of Advising. Then, learn about the Transfer Equivalency Tool from Nicole Marshall:

Financial Aid & Residency Information


Financial Aid

The Office of Financial Aid is available to assist you with your financial needs and questions about funding your education. Visit their website to chat live with a Financial Aid Counselor during office hours (Monday – Friday from 8 am to 5 pm). 

As a transfer student, your financial aid does not automatically transfer from one school to another. You must cancel aid at your current school and re-apply for aid at Georgia Southern. Visit Financial Aid for more information.

Learn more about Financial Aid with Blake Mercer:

 

Residency & Tuition Classification

Students are classified as residents or non-residents based on the Georgia Southern application for admission. Any information indicating ties to another state (out-of-state address, out-of-state school, out-of-state driver’s license, etc.) will result in an out-of-state classification. Learn more about residency here, and if you have questions about your residency status, email residency@georgiasouthern.edu after your acceptance.

Learn more about residency with Javona Douglas, our Residency Coordinator:
