Hello CTAE Educators! Georgia Southwestern recognizes the important role that Career, Technical, and Agricultural Educators play in developing and preparing students for life at a university. We want to be a resource for you and ask that you encourage your students to explore the opportunities at Georgia Southwestern.

Today's Lesson

Need a virtual lesson or a day to prepare for an upcoming CTSO competition or event? Then let Georgia Southwestern take over your class for a day. We have prepared a 30-minute video for you to share with your class. It discusses "Navigating the College Admissions Process" using Georgia Southwestern as the sample school. It teaches students about the options to consider and the questions to ask when trying to find a college that is right for them. Included below is a 20-question quiz/assignment with answer key for you to use. We have also developed a Kahoot! quiz if you prefer that option.

Bring Your CTSO to Georgia Southwestern

We are excited to host you and your students for a tour of Georgia Southwestern State University.  We love having the opportunity to showcase our excellent academics and wonderful campus atmosphere to prospective students.

The tour can be formatted to fit the needs of your particular group, although they usually consist of a welcome from the Office of Admissions, a tour of campus and finally, a meeting with an Admissions Counselor.  The tour will be led by student leaders. If there is a particular major associated with your CTSO, we can also try to arrange a short meeting with faculty from that department. An example would be a HOSA group meeting with our College of Nursing and Health Sciences.

Group tours can be scheduled Monday-Friday during our normal business hours.  To set up your visit, call our office at (229) 928-1273 or email

Reservations are required and we ask that they be made as early as possible, preferably no less than 1 week in advance. Additionally, there must be one adult chaperone for every 15 students. Requests for a school group visit should be made by a chaperone who will be accompanying the group on the tour.

If you need to cancel your group’s visit, we ask that you notify our office at least 2 days in advance, if possible.

*Due to the availability of admissions staff and tour guides, reservations for group visits are limited to high school students only. 


Nursing Guaranteed Acceptance Program

Southwestern offers an exciting Guaranteed Acceptance Program (GAP) for exceptional high school students interested in nursing. As you know, admission to nursing programs is extremely competitive across the nation and usually occurs during a student's collegiate sophomore year. At Southwestern, incoming freshmen are given the opportunity to apply for admission to the nursing GAP before the end of their senior year of high school. Students admitted into the GAP are assured a place in our nursing program, providing they meet the required benchmarks during the program. Currently, participation in the GAP also includes a $1000 on-campus housing scholarship, which is renewable for one year. There are two early action deadlines March 1st and May 1st. We hope you will encourage your students to apply early.

Georgia's Leading Nursing Program

In addition to the opportunity to apply for a guaranteed place in our nursing program, Southwestern also offers a leading program in one of the most technologically advanced training facilities in the nation. The link below allows you to take a video tour of that nursing facility and meet some of our students.
