Spring enrollment on the rise at Georgia Southwestern State University

AMERICUS, GA (January 10, 2024) – Early enrollment numbers at Georgia Southwestern State University indicate a notable 15% increase for Spring 2024, compared to the previous year, surpassing 3,200 students.

This growth follows an 11% increase in Fall 2023, setting a record with 3,415 students, and a 7.3% increase in Summer 2023.

“Georgia Southwestern continues to be a leading institution in the state, providing tremendous value to our students and region,” said GSW President Neal Weaver, Ph.D. “This growth reflects the strategic efforts and dedication of our faculty and staff who are focused on ensuring student success, enhancing the overall campus experience, providing programs relevant to our economy and graduating students who will make a real impact in our region’s workforce.”

GSW’s enrollment success largely stems from a proactive recruitment approach, expanded scholarship and program offerings, student success initiatives and quality programs which are consistently top-ranked regionally and nationally — all at an affordable cost. 

Increases were seen across all categories for Spring, including traditional college freshmen, transfers, dual enrollment, undergraduates and graduate students.

The final count for Spring 2024 enrollment will be published by the University System of Georgia later this semester.

GSW begins classes on Jan. 10 and enrollment continues through Jan. 16. There is still time to apply and enroll for Spring semester. For more information, visit, email, or call 229-928-1273.
