5 If you’re still in high school but want to start taking classes at Georgia Southern, look into Dual Enrollment.
One of the best ways to get started on a college degree while in high school is Dual Enrollment. This program allows you to take classes right alongside your fellow classmates, but you’re actually learning from Georgia Southern faculty who are dedicated to helping you succeed. The courses you take can count toward your degree when it comes time for graduation!
The best part about this program is that it’s offered at Georgia Southern’s campuses across South Georgia and Savannah, so there’s no traveling required (just set up an account with the university and start logging in).
6 There are many ways to check if you’re eligible for admission to Georgia Southern University.
To begin the process of applying, prospective students can visit the university’s website and click on the “Admissions” tab. From there, they can view a calendar of application deadlines and important dates for your specific school year.
