The Early Action Deadline is Approaching

The Early Action deadline is almost here!  Our office typically receives 4,000+ applications, a drastic increase in mail, emails and phone calls in the few days preceding the deadline.  The best thing an applicant can do right now is be patient.  We work as quickly as possible to match documents with files, but we are dealing with a large number of applications and supplemental material.

The fastest way to get material to us is to send it electronically.  If your high school is in Georgia, you can send transcripts through GAcollege411.org . Students attending a high school outside of Georgia can have their counselors submit transcripts online through Docufide/Parchment.  The high school evaluation can be submitted online from the High School Counselor Portal.  Remember, no faxes!

Please do not call our office to ask if we have received a document, test score, etc. if it was just sent.  It takes about 8 to 10 business days from the time something is mailed for it to be matched with your file.  It takes 4 to 5 business days for something submitted online to show up on your myStatus.

Be sure to check your myStatus to see what we have received and what we are missing.  This is updated once every business day, so you do not need to check it several times a day.  Documents do not need to show up in your myStatus by October 15 to be in by the deadline.  Know that if you have submitted something to us by the deadline, we will post it in our system and your myStatus shortly.  We appreciate your patience as we work vigorously to match all of the material we are receiving with applications.

Go Dawgs!
