The New Georgia Southern University

In January 2017, the University System of Georgia Board of Regents voted to consolidate Armstrong State University and Georgia Southern University. If approved, the new University will be formed in January 2018 and the expected timeline for the first entering class will be fall 2018.

For now, students should apply to the campus they plan to attend. This application is for students wanting to attend classes on the Statesboro campus. If you want to attend the Armstrong campus in Savannah or the Liberty campus in Hinesville, you should apply to Armstrong State University.

Paying for College & Financial Aid


Paying for college and navigating the financial aid process can be scary and confusing. Georgia Southern wants to be as transparent as possible with the cost of attendance and our staff want to help. You should be sure to plan ahead with your family on how to pay for college.

Applying for financial aid isn't as complex as you might imagine. For a step-by-step checklist, visit the Office of Financial Aid's website. Start the process by completing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), available October 1st for the following fall term. You should complete the FAFSA by February 1st for fall semester aid. Contact Georgia Southern's Office of Financial Aid at (912) 478-5413 or finaid@georgiasouthern.edu.

If you would like to receive a 1098-T form after each year of enrollment to claim an education credit on your (or your parents') tax return, you must provide a social security number on this application.
