Organization

Waycross College is a two-year college and one of the newest institutions in the University System of Georgia. It is located in rural southeast Georgia and serves a ten-county area adjacent to the Okefenokee Swamp. Five major buildings, including a new state of the art Student Services Center, are located on the 150 acre campus. Off-campus classes are offered in the city of Hinesville.

The College is widely recognized as a place for students who want to enter the job market with a solid foundation in liberal arts or transfer successfully to a baccalaureate program at a four-year institution. The College does an excellent job of preparing its students for both.

Waycross College is a non-residential college of 980 students. The student body is diverse, and the average age is 25. Students may choose to major in one of 30 associate degree programs in areas such as business, criminal justice, history, psychology, and teacher education. Flexible class scheduling and an academic support center assist students in making the most of educational opportunities. Waycross College students perform well on the Regents’ Test and have good success upon transferring to four-year institutions. The Adults Start College Grant helps returning non-traditional students achieve success in higher education.

Partnerships with the community are particularly evident at Waycross College. The College is an active supporter of the Okefenokee Arts and Entertainment Alliance.

There is no lack of outside activities for students. Concerts, special lectures, social events, cultural exhibits and intramural sports are just a few of the extracurricular activities offered at Waycross College. Students also may participate in leadership opportunities through Phi Theta Kappa, the Multicultural Student Alliance, the Drama Club and Outdoor Adventurers Club.

Waycross College was founded in 1970 by the University System of Georgia to serve the growing southeast Georgia region. Classes began in 1976.
