How do I get my Eagle ID card?

Approximately 72 hours after you are registered for classes at EGSC, you may present your schedule to Eagle Card Services at GS to obtain your Eagle ID card.

Can I join ROTC and/or Southern Pride Marching Band?

Yes! Please email jwilliamson@ega.edu to request more information.

Can I purchase a meal plan?

Yes. You can purchase a meal plan through GS. Please visit the GS website for more information on meal plans.

Do you have on-campus housing?

Our students live in student-centered apartment complexes located around the GS campus. A shuttle is provided to EGSC from Paulson Stadium located on the GS campus. As a convenience for our students, we have compiled a list of options you may view by clicking here.

Do I put EGSC or GS on my FAFSA?

Listing both schools is an option. However, you must make sure that EGSC’s school code is listed and submitted.

EGSC’s school code- 010997- This will come up as the Swainsboro Campus

Can I use my financial aid for rent, purchasing a meal plan, or books?

  • Books: If you have aid left over after tuition and fees are subtracted, you are able to use up to $800 or 75% of the amount left to purchase textbooks. This is called a “book voucher”. The amount used will be deducted from your refund.
  • Rent: The apartment complexes in Statesboro know that many students rely on their financial aid refunds to pay their rent, and the majority of them will work with you to modify payment deadlines to meet financial aid disbursement schedules.
  • Meal Plans: Meal plans are purchased through GS and must be paid for upfront. In other words, you are unable to wait on a financial aid refund before paying for the meal plan.
