About Macon State
All applicants must have a high school diploma or a General Educational Development (GED) credential. The high school diploma must be issued from a high school accredited by a regional accrediting association, the Georgia Accrediting Commission, the Georgia Private School Accrediting Commission, the Accrediting Commission for Independent Study or from a public school regulated by a school system and state department of education. Applicants who have a High School Certificate (also called a Certificate of Performance) or a Special Education Diploma are not considered to be high school graduates.
GED applicants must be at least 18 years old or the GED applicant's class must have graduated from high school. There are no exceptions to the requirement that a beginning freshman have either a high school diploma or the GED.
Admissions Requirements for Traditional Students
Middle Georgia College and Macon State College will be consolidating to form Middle Georgia State College (pending SACS approval) in January 2013 through an act of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia. Due to financial aid regulations and the enormity of this project our databases won't be fully consolidated until Fall 2013. Students applying for Spring 2013 and Summer 2013 will need to decide where the majority of their classes will be taken. This will determine which school they need to apply to for financial aid.
Students who will take the majority of their classes through Macon or Warner Robins will need to apply to Macon State. Students who will take the majority of their classes on the Cochran, Dublin or Eastman campus will need to apply to Middle Georgia College. Failure to submit documentation correctly will result in acceptance and awarding delays. If you have questions of where to apply please contact the Admission Office and/or Financial Aid Office at either school and they will be glad to assist you.
Current students who wish to take classes for Spring 2013 and/or Summer 2013 at Macon/Warner Robins and Cochran/Dublin/Eastman will need to apply for transient status at their home institution. Home institution is defined as the school where you are receiving your financial aid. If you have question about how to apply for transient status, please contact the Registrar's Office at either school and they will be glad to assist you. Please note that current students who wish to take ALL of their classes at a new campus will need to apply to the appropriate college as a transfer student and have all admission and financial aid documents sent to the school (e.g., Macon State College students who wish to take all of their classes at the Cochran campus will need to apply as a transfer student to Middle Georgia College for spring or summer 2013).
Please also note that the Admission's Requirements have changed. For more information please visit here.
Due to the consolidation admission requirements have changed and we now have tiered admission standards for bachelor, associate and certificate programs.
The following COMPASS scores are needed to exempt learning support: 70 English/Writing, 78 Reading, and 37 Algebra. Students must also reach the COMPASS minimums of 32 English, 20 Math and 62 Reading. Students that fail to score the COMPASS minimums or place into all three areas of Learning Support will not be admissible under general admission but may be eligible for the Prep Academy.
