What Students Are Saying

3.86 Average Rating
I would definitely come to visit the school first. I didn't, and wound up still enjoying the campus, but my experience could have turned out a lot differently. Also, some of the people in my incoming class found each other on Facebook. I recommend joining your class page, or following each other on Twitter. It gives you the opportunity to get a brief glimpse of who you're going to be meeting.
Ada from Washington, DC
Once you enroll into Savannah State University, do not lose focus on the reason that you chose the college, which should be academically based. Having fun should come after academic success.
Jacquez from Albany, GA
Always be on top of your financial aid, meal plans and housing and check out scholarships early, as you will not be informed of them after you've been accepted.
Simone from Beaverton, OR
Always call the Financial Aid building about funding for school, as while as Housing to make sure you have a room to stay in when you get there.

Everything is going electronic now, so your email and PAWS account will need to be checked daily.

But stay on top of Financial Aid!!! They are mighty slow!

1) Make sure to turn in all your paperwork early. Try to get your stuff together before the rush, when everyone will be in the financial aid, and bursars office.
2) If you plan to stay on campus make sure to get to know your CA. They are there to help you, but sometimes you need to make the first effort.
3) Plan to be involved, make sure you have your academics together your first semester, but make sure to look at some of the organizations on campus. There is bound to be something that interests you.
4) If you are from out of state there is a representative just for you, who is suppose to help you with scholarships, and simple things to make your first year a little easier.
5) There is a freshman academy that will allow you to explore the campus and all it has to offer, along with alternative trips for breaks that you could become a part of to get to know your incoming class better.
Chantel from JACKSONVILLE, FL
Go to class during homecoming week, that's when most professors give out extra credit.
Simmons from Savannah, GA
A tip that I can give to prospective students is to use the multitude of resources that the University offers you, whether it be the library or any tutoring programs available. Also, try getting involved with a club or organization and be a well-rounded student.
Sean from Wrens, GA
Make sure you stay on top of your financial aid. Stay organized and always put homework and school work FIRST! Remember you are paying for this so if you slack off you have to pay even more to retake the class! SSU welcomes everyone and makes you feel like family as soon as you step on campus.
