Applicants to Bainbridge State College must follow the steps for admission and meet the minimum requirements for their admissions classification as shown by the chart on the following pages. Applicants should determine which admission classification they desire and note the steps for admission and the minimum requirements for that classification. Certificate/Diploma applicants must be at least 16 years old; some programs have higher age requirements (17 for the Practical Nurse [PN] program). For all degree programs (Bachelor of Science, Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, and Associate of Applied Science), students may be considered for admission if they have earned a high school diploma or GED, have a minimum of a 2.0 high school GPA, and meet the minimum COMPASS score requirements. For degree programs, a GED is acceptable only if the student’s high school class has graduated. Certificates of attendance or special education diplomas are not acceptable. Direct admission appeals to the Bainbridge State College Admissions Committee. However, the Georgia Board of Regents sets most minimum requirements which are considered firm. The applicants should call the Office of Admissions at 229-243-6020 or toll free at 1-866-825-1715 for more information.
