Admissions

Summer 2019 Freshman

All freshmen 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 be able to meet with your academic advisor, who will advise you on which classes have been selected for your first semester. We encourage you to prepare for advisement prior to SOAR.
