Admissions

2019 Summer Transfer Students

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 to show you what it means to be a Georgia Southern student! You will also be able to sit down with your academic advisor, who will advise you on which classes to take during your first semester at Georgia Southern University.
