Prospective Students

Thank you for your interest in the College of Health and Human Sciences at Georgia Southern University.

Consolidating Armstrong State University & Georgia Southern University
In January 2017, the University System of Georgia Board of Regents voted to consolidate Armstrong State University and Georgia Southern University. The new, 27,000-student university will be named Georgia Southern University with campuses in Savannah, Statesboro, and Hinesville. If approved by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) and the Board of Regents for the University System of Georgia (BORUSG), the new University will be formed in January 2018 with the expected timeline for the first entering class to be fall 2018. Complete details can be found at

The consolidation of Georgia Southern University and Armstrong State University is pending approval from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges and the University System of Georgia Board of Regents.

*A Special Note to Transfer Students*

We know transferring to another institution is a large decision and one important factor when making that decision is how the classes you have already taken will transfer to Georgia Southern University. We carefully assess your transcripts prior to your enrolling in classes here at Georgia Southern University. However, we cannot do this until after you have applied, been accepted and enrolled in a SOAR session.

For those who have not applied or have not yet been accepted, please use the Transfer Course Equivalencies tool on the Registrar’s website to determine whether your courses will transfer to Georgia Southern University.

For additional resources, visit the Georgia Southern Transfer Information page.


SOAR is Georgia Southern University’s New Student Orientation Program. SOAR gives students the opportunity to become familiarized with the campus and resources, meet their advisor, and register for classes. It is a mandatory program for all incoming freshmen and transfer students.  If you have been accepted and are planning on attending Georgia Southern University, please be sure to register for a SOAR session.

NOTE: Post-Baccalaureate students and those who have been accepted to the RN-BSN program do NOT need to attend SOAR.
