Georgia Southwestern is proud to offer the SAT On-Campus. This program allows students the opportunity to take the SAT on the Southwestern campus and use that score for entrance into Georgia Southwestern State University only. The scores may be used for both regular beginning freshmen and for Move On When Ready applicants. The cost of the test is $50 and is payable on the morning of testing with cash or check. Students wanting to pay with credit card must do so at the Student Accounts Office, located in the Marshal Student Center. Payments are accepted from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM. The student should bring their receipt showing payment to testing.
Testing will test place in the Administration Building, students will be report to the Admissions Office. The test will take approximately 3 1/2 hours. Students must have photo identification and are encouraged to bring an SAT approved calculator. Students are also encouraged to prepare for the test by using the information found at the SAT website, https://professionals.collegeboard.com/testing/sat. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer accommodations for the SAT On-Campus.
The Office of Admissions at Georgia Southwestern State University is dedicated to recruiting, admitting, and serving new students regionally, nationally, and internationally. Our mission is to provide University information to an eligible, diverse student population; and to provide quality service and assistance to both graduate and undergraduate students while maintaining the integrity of the admissions process.
Georgia, Florida, Alabama, and South Carolina residents all pay in-state tuition at Southwestern. Residents of Alabama, Florida and South Carolina that attend Georgia Southwestern State University will be granted out-of-state tuition waivers by the University System of Georgia (USG). As an added incentive, the first 50 students from Florida, Alabama, or South Carolina to be accepted to Southwestern will receive a $500 scholarship. We encourage you to apply and submit the needed materials early so you may qualify for this scholarship.
Students receiving the border state waiver must remain continuously enrolled at GSW to ensure this waiver will be continued until graduation. The 4 States - 1 Rate Initiative allows students from these 3 states the opportunity to attend an out-of-state university with a private school feel at a fraction of what that cost should be. We look forward to the opportunity to welcome more students to Southwestern from these neighboring states.
