General SSU Admissions Requirements

Forms and Policies

  • Re-Admission for SSU Undergraduates
    If you attended SSU in the past, use this simple, one-page form to apply for re-admission. You may print the form, complete it and fax it to the Registrar's Office as instructed. Notice of acceptance is generally forthcoming within ten business days.
  • Academic Renewal Policy (Georgia Board of Regents)
    The University System of Georgia allows students who are re-entering a USG college after an absence of five or more years and who experienced previous academic difficulties the one-time opportunity to renew grades for graduation GPA purposes. Students are advised that academic renewal may affect financial aid and are urged to consult with the SSU Financial Aid Office. A full explanation of the policy and criteria for acceptance can be found on the Board of Regents' website indicated above.
