East Georgia State College (EGSC) is a part of the University System of Georgia (USG) and is one of the most affordable colleges in the US through its vast resources and partnerships. For example, EGSC students in Statesboro and Augusta pay EGSC’s low tuition, enjoy small classes with professors who know their name AND have access to the wide range of student services at larger USG institutions, such as access to the libraries, clubs, health clinics, athletic events, etc. at Georgia Southern University and Augusta University. With abundant scholarship opportunities, transferability to other colleges, and partnerships with larger USG institutions, EGSC provides an affordable and easy-to-navigate path through the first two years of college. That means less student debt and more money in your pocket!
