Georgia Southwestern is inviting any students who were last enrolled Fall 2019 through Fall 2020 back to campus for a second chance. We understand that times get tough and sometimes life just gets in the way. Whether it was financial struggles, health concerns, frustration with virtual learning or caring for loved ones, we realize that one of these issues - or a combination of several - may have led you to hit pause on your college journey. We want to invite you to return to GSW for the Fall 2021 semester and re-start your college experience.
