About Macon State
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.
The Office of Financial Aid provides assistance for students who, without such aid, would be unable to attend Macon State College. It is the intention of the College to help as many students as possible by providing assistance with grants, scholarships, loans and/or student employment.
Macon State College is able to offer many students financial assistance. We realize that despite scholarship assistance and the reasonable cost of a Macon State education, you and/or your family may not be able to provide the resources necessary to fund your college education. We hope that no student will fail to consider Macon State College due to financial reasons.
The Financial Aid Office is committed to helping you find ways to finance your education. Our staff can help you sort through various types of financial aid, including the Georgia HOPE programs and Federal Student Aid Programs.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Financial Aid awards are subject to change without prior notification.
