Welcome to South Georgia State College!

As president, I give you a special invitation to visit us at any time—in person or through this site—and explore what's happening at SGSC.

SGSC is a multi-site, fully accredited college and member of the University System of Georgia, with a main campus in Douglas, an additional campus in Waycross, and two entry programs in Valdosta and Americus. With a strong academic program, a rich heritage of athletics and engaging student activities, SGSC provides a complete college experience that is affordable, accessible, welcoming, and safe.

South Georgia State College offers over 20 associate degree pathways that transfer seamlessly to four-year institutions as well as three bachelor’s degrees. We take pride in the close relationships our students have with faculty and staff who care about each and every student, and we strive to ensure that each one benefits from the individual attention given by faculty members who are highly qualified in their fields.

Our athletic teams are nationally recognized and academically successful. Students can participate in men’s basketball, baseball, softball, women’s soccer, men’s and women’s swimming, and cross country. SGSC is committed to assisting each student athlete in attaining a high level of academic excellence. The campus community is always invited to cheer for their favorite Hawks team!

SGSC offers an array of free student services including financial aid, tutoring, academic advising, and career and transition counseling. Students are also encouraged to get involved in student life by participating in Student Government Association (SGA), Phi Theta Kappa Honors Society, Georgia Association of Nursing (GANS), as well as many other clubs and activities.

Whether you are looking for information about admissions requirements, financial aid guidelines, details about the academic offering, information about living on campus in our contemporary residence halls, or just want to get acquainted with South Georgia State College, you’ll be able to find what you need on our website.

We welcome your interest and ask that you please accept my personal request to come visit and experience the Hawk nation. Hawks fly!
