Confirmation Deposit

Congratulations! Receiving an offer of admission to the university is only the first step. To reserve your space, all admitted freshmen (and transfer students with less than 12 hours) wishing to reserve their seats must submit the following by May 1:

  • a $200 non-refundable enrollment confirmation deposit
  • a $235 housing application fee & security deposit ($200 of which is refundable up to May 1) 

Students are encouraged to submit their deposits as soon as they are certain of Georgia College as their college choice, especially since room assignments and roommate preferences are based on date priority.

Additional deposit information and the Confirmation of Enrollment form will arrive with the acceptance package. Any students admitted after May 1 must submit the confirmation deposit and housing materials within two weeks of receiving an offer of admission.

Any student canceling a housing contract after May 1 will forfeit the housing security deposit.
