Happy 225!


Later this week, UGA will be celebrating the 225 anniversary of the founding of the university, with a focus on both the history of UGA and the future for our institution. On Thursday, April 22, the focus will be on the past 225 years of UGA, with discussions about the evolution of the physical space on campus, desegregation, and a reception and concert featuring the music of UGA. On Friday, April 23, the focus will be on what lies ahead for UGA, and will close with a rededication of the Fine Arts Theatre. As the nation's first chartered public institution of higher education, UGA has a great deal to celebrate!

Please visit the 225 celebration site for more information about the event and the history of UGA.

  1. How can I change my major before orientation?

  2. Anon: Freshman can go to the Information Change form to change their major, but transfers are not allowed to change majors once they are admitted.

  3. Hi! Is UGA participating in the Move On When Ready Joint Enrollment Program, and if so, how can I apply?

  4. Erin: All USG colleges and universities are working on the MOWR program requirements, so hopefully this information should be out by this summer. The MOWR program is similar to an Advanced Enrollment applicant, where the student would attend a college full-time prior to high school graduation.

    At this time, the Adv. Enrollment deadlines are the same as freshman deadlines, so the timeline for fall 2010 is behind us. As well, I expect the requirements for the program will be fairly high (as the Adv. Enrollment requirements are), and also will involve an interview. For more details on Adv. Enrollment levels, do a search on the admissions website for it.

    In addition, for students outside the Athens area, there would most likely be an on-campus housing requirement.

  5. Hi DGraves,

    Great blog! I am interested in earning a second bachelor's degree (I have my first already). Do you happen to have any stats available for applicants pursuing a second degree?

    Thanks!

  6. *My appologies - I should have been more specific. By stats I mean any historical information such as application/acceptance rates, GPAs etc for those pursuing a second degree.

    Thanks again :O)

  7. Kal: The number of second degree is applicants is so small compared to freshman and traditional transfers that I have no statistics available. At time, second degree applicant files may take longer to process due to the large number of courses to review and determine UGA equivalents.
