Welcome New Bobcats!
You have begun your journey to officially becoming an East Georgia State College student! It is our job, and our passion, to ease the transition to EGSC for both you and your family. We want to make sure you receive adequate preparation for the academic and social life that awaits you as a college student.

What is P.A.W.S.?
The P.A.W.S. (Preparing, Advising, and Welcoming Students) Orientation program is a mandatory, one day session for all new EGSC students providing students and their families with a more informed understanding of resources, policies, and new student expectations. Key elements of the program include a sequence of informational sessions for students and parents, training on myEGSC and applications, a group academic advisement session for students, and training and oversight of the course registration process. Because we consider this information vital to your academic success, all first-year students at EGSC are required to attend Orientation.
Students attending the Swainsboro, Augusta, or Statesboro locations are able to attend the Swainsboro Orientation.
You will receive an email invitation to register for an orientation date, which is sent to the student's myEGSC CatMail account, confirming your acceptance and approval to attend Orientation. Reserve your spot for the semester and campus you will be attending at the "Register for Orientation" link shown above.
