Let's Get Associated.

Academic and Student Affairs

Welcome to the Office of Academic and Student Affairs at East Georgia State College. Our focus is providing education that transforms the intellectual lives of students as it challenges them to deepen their understanding of social, ethical, and global issues, as well as their own place in a complex evolving world.

We are glad you have chosen EGSC.  We want the years you spend with us to be transformative and to open many doors in the future.  It is important to get connected to your faculty, support staff, fellow students, organizations, and activities during your time with us.  Our offices and programs opportunities inside and outside of the classroom to enrich your life and to help you reach your desired goals. 

The college years can be one of the most exciting times in your life.  Take your studies seriously and plan to spend at least two or more hours studying for every hour in the classroom.  We offer free tutoring in the Academic Center for Excellence and encourage you to take advantage of this and other services to assist you.  College is not just about the academic life associated with the classroom.  It is also about getting involved with new activities and new friends.  EGSC has a number of extra and co-curricular activities and organizations to explore, and we hope you will get connected with as many of those as possible. 

We are here to help you, so do not hesitate to reach out.  I look forward to your time here with us and hope to see you at graduation!
