Waycross College was a two-year unit of the University System of Georgia. The College's philosophy was to provide opportunities for those who need special preparation for regular college-level courses, while giving well-prepared students immediate access to transfer courses that can be applied toward advanced study appropriate to their academic goals.
Historically, the establishment of a University System two-year college in the Ware County-Waycross area was originally approved by the Board of Regents in December, 1970. A site for the College was approved by the Board in February, 1973. A bond issue was approved in May, 1973. An official name, Waycross Junior College, was approved by the Board of Regents in January, 1975. Waycross Junior College opened for classes in September, 1976. In June, 1987, the official name was changed to Waycross College.
On January 10, 2012, the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia approved the merger of the school with South Georgia College. The two institutions were consolidated into a new institution named South Georgia State College on Jan. 8, 2013.
