Waycross College, a two-year unit of the University System of Georgia, exists to provide programs of higher education for citizens of the immediate and surrounding communities. The College's philosophy is 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.

Waycross College attempts to provide a wide range of enjoyable and satisfying experiences calculated to contribute to one's intellectual objectives and personal interests and aptitudes. Concerts, recitals, special lectures, independent study, meaningful physical activities, club activities, social events, cultural exhibits, and intercollegiate athletics are provided on a regular basis.

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 anticipate consolidation as a two-campus institution called South Georgia State College on Jan. 8, 2013, pending approval by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges and the University System of Georgia’s Board of Regents.

Waycross College is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award associate’s degrees.
