Fall 2019 Transfer/Non-Traditional

Transfer and Mature/Non-Traditional

All students are required to attend a SOAR session prior to enrolling in classes. SOAR sessions are led by current Georgia Southern students who will be a great resource for you to ask questions of and show you what it means to be a Georgia Southern student! You will also meet with your academic advisor, who will advise you on which classes to take during your time here. For more information about advising and course scheduling, see Preparing for Advisement at SOAR.
