About Macon State
The Office of Admissions is eager to assist prospective students. Office personnel are available from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 12:00 noon on Friday to provide information about College programs and admissions procedures. Our view book also is an excellent source of information, and is available here.
Admission to Macon State College requires that the Office of Admissions know as much about the academic ability of its applicants as possible. Only after such information is obtained is the College able to make an admission decision in the best interest of both the applicant and the College. Thus, the procedures outlined below should be followed in furnishing the Office of Admissions with a complete set of such relevant information.
An applicant must be qualified to do college work and must be of good moral character. The College shall have the right to examine an applicant's academic competence and character. The College reserves the right to require additional data from an applicant and to have the applicant appear for a personal interview before his or her application is accepted or rejected.
Applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible for the term in which they plan to enroll. For a student to be considered admission, an application must be submitted at least thirty days prior to the beginning of the semester for which admission is sought.
Evaluations of transfer credit are mailed to applicants prior to the first class day as long as the admissions file was complete by the application deadline. Otherwise, evaluations of transfer credit will be mailed to students during the first semester.
Prospective students should follow the steps and instructions provided below.
The Office of Admissions follows minimum admission standards established by the University System of Georgia (USG), as well as institutionally approved standards. The College's admission standards can be viewed on the Admissions web page by prospective student type.
An applicant's right of appeal is provided by the bylaws of the College and of the USG BOR. Appeals must be made in writing to the Dean of Admissions and Enrollment Management. An Admissions Advisory Committee, chaired by the Dean Of Admissions and Enrollment Management, reviews written appeals on an as-needed basis. The student is notified in writing of the decision by the Admissions Advisory Committee, and written appeals and correspondence are stored in the document imaging system maintained by the Office of Admissions. The decision of the Admissions Advisory Committee is final.
