Please note that Orientation is mandatory for ALL incoming students to East Georgia State College (exceptions include Dual Enrolled, Transients, Former Students, and Non-Degree Seeking students). Incoming new students that fail to attend Orientation will be allowed to only register for classes during the late registration process, which means you may not be able to get the course or professor you were hoping for. A hold will be placed on your student record requiring attendance at a ‘late’ orientation program with the date of event to be determined by the Admissions Office. Students enrolling at the Statesboro campus will attend P.A.W.S. at Statesboro and students enrolling at the Swainsboro campus will attend P.A.W.S. in Swainsboro. However, due to limited spacing students are allowed to only bring ONE guest.
The P.A.W.S. Orientation program is for YOUR benefit to help you to be the most successful student you can be! In order to attend Orientation and register for classes you must be accepted to East Georgia State College. If you have not been accepted, you will need to check your admissions status to see what outstanding requirements you have that may be preventing your file from being complete or if any COMPASS testing must occur. We no longer test students for the COMPASS at Orientation so you must take care of that prior to attending an Orientaiton date . Upon acceptance, you can select the P.A.W.S. link above and then choose which Orientation you would like to attend. We look forward to having you become part of the EGSC family! If you have any questions or concerns prior to your attendance, please do not hesitate to contact us.
