Admissions

Dual Enrollment

Due to the recent events involving COVID-19, the University has put our community’s health and well-being at the forefront of each decision. Because of that, all SOAR sessions for new summer and fall students are being moved to a fully virtual format. For information on Georgia Southern’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, visit our information page.

As a dual-enrolled student, face-to-face SOAR was already optional for you. But know that your dual enrollment advisors are committed to ensuring you will be ready to begin classes and join a truly unique community of fellow Eagles. Be on the lookout for information regarding a special online orientation experience made just for dual-enrolled students. Because of this, you do not need to register for Virtual SOAR. Other resources will be shared throughout the summer to ensure your questions have been answered and you are ready to SOAR!

All summer semester courses will be held fully online. Your academic advisor will help summer students build a schedule, but no coursework will be face-to-face between now and the end of July. If you are currently admitted to start in May/June and would like to start in August instead, complete a brief form to update your entry term here.
