Freshman Application Changes Part II
Starting with the Spring 2010 application cycle and beyond, UGA will only be accepting online applications (this applies to freshman and transfers), as we are shifting away from paper. Less than 4% of applicants applied by paper last year, but the delay in inputting information, scanning the documents and interpreting the handwriting proved a great challenge to our office. In order to streamline the process and allow for quicker timelines, we have shifted to the online application only policy. We will still have sample pdf copies of the application available for you to review, but they will have a large "SAMPLE" image across them.
We hope that this will ultimately make the process easier and quicker, and it will assist our office in obtaining more accurate information in an easier to read method. I will post about the other changes later on this week.
