College of Coastal Georgia sails

BRUNSWICK, GA, September 2, 2020 - Students applying for freshman admission to the College of Coastal Georgia will not have to submit standardized SAT or ACT test scores for the 2021 spring, summer, or fall terms. The new requirements were recently approved by the University System of Georgia in light of testing interruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

 According to Dr. Jason Umfress, vice president for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management, “The current pandemic has placed institutions in a unique situation and has allowed many colleges to evaluate their existing policies, including a review of the enrollment process. At Coastal Georgia, we value our approach to allowing students to access a quality education and typically review their qualifications based on academic merit and standardized test scores. With test scores being waived for the upcoming year, we will include and evaluate a student’s past academic performance as an indicator of success here at the College while eliminating potential barriers to the enrollment process.”

 “By waiving the requirements, we will continue to expand access for potential students to enroll at the College of Coastal Georgia, which is here to serve the students in the region, across Georgia, and beyond—even during uncertain times,” said College of Coastal Georgia President Michelle Johnston.

 The College is currently accepting applications for the Spring 2021 semester. The application for the Summer 2021 and Fall 2021 semesters opened on Tuesday, September 1. The application fee will be waived the week of September 1-7. For more information, visit
