Admissions Committee


The Admissions Committee serves in an advisory capacity to the Director of Admissions. The Admissions Committee is appointed by the President and performs a variety of tasks related to clarifying admissions policies and applying these policies in exceptional cases.


The Admissions Committee hears academic appeals from Gordon State College students wishing to be readmitted; reviews files of students who are on academic suspension or exclusion at other institutions and are seeking admission to Gordon College; considers refunds of housing deposits for students who decide not to live in the campus housing; hears appeals for waiver of the out-of-state tuition charges and reviews petitions for Georgia residence classification; hears appeals of students who were denied residence hall space or admission to the College; reviews files of students with criminal convictions seeking admission to the College; periodically makes recommendations to the Faculty for changes in admissions requirements or admissions policy applications.
