2014 Transfer Updates

Late last week, our office started reviewing Summer transfer applications.  The deadline for summer has not passed and we are still receiving applications and documents, so we cannot say how long it will take us to finish or guess when you will hear a decision.  If you applied early for summer or fall, please be sure to check your myStatus to see if we have your most up-to-date transcript(s).  If you were enrolled in coursework last fall and have not sent a transcript with your fall grades, you should have one sent as soon as possible.  To be complete and ready to review, we must have a transcript from each college/university you have previously attended.  If we see that you were enrolled in courses last fall and we do not have a transcript with those grades, you are not complete and this will delay a review of your application.

The Fall transfer application will open up on Monday, February 17, as we have two systems running this year, and we need to keep the Summer applications (on the old system) separate from the Fall applications (new system). The deadline for Fall transfer admissions is April 1, and this is both an application and document deadline. We suggest you not wait until the deadline to apply, as this can only delay a decision and cause slowness in matching up documents due to the volume of items coming in around deadlines. Due to the new system, the start of Fall transfer reviews might be a little later, as we have to build the transfer articulation of coursework from X colleges to UGA courses. Thank you for your patience in this matter.

Transfer decisions are made on a daily basis Monday through Friday, and it varies on how many decisions we can make in a day due to the complexity of some transfer files. The myStatus page is updated in the early a.m. every morning, and decisions are posted on the myStatus page and are mailed to transfer applicants.

Go Dawgs!
