Consolidation

Consolidating Armstrong State University & Georgia Southern University

In January 2017, the University System of Georgia Board of Regents voted to consolidate Armstrong State University and Georgia Southern University. The new, 27,000-student university will be named Georgia Southern University with campuses in Savannah, Statesboro, and Hinesville. The​ ​expected​ ​timeline​ ​for​ ​the​ ​first​ ​entering​ ​class​ ​will​ ​be​ ​fall  2018.​ ​​We​ ​are​ ​excited  about​ ​the​ ​future​ ​of​ ​the​ ​new​ ​Georgia​ ​Southern​ ​and​ ​how​ ​we​ ​can​ ​better​ ​serve​ ​students!  Complete details about consolidation can be found at consolidation.georgiasouthern.edu.
