2017 Early Action Update

With the Early Action deadline hitting about 10 days ago, here are a few updates about the process:


  • Total EA Applications (7% increase over last year):  15,560 (submitted and fee paid)
  • Complete Early Action Applications as of today: 13, 850 (89% of the group)
  • # of EA Applicants Applying within 4 days of Deadline: 4,264
As you can see, a large number of the Early Action applications are complete. The biggest item that is missing right now are official test scores, and as long as they were both taken and UGA was marked as a score recipient by 10/15, we can use them. You can see if your SAT scores have been sent by looking at the Score Sends option on your online score report. The ACT does not have an online listing of when scores are sent, so you would need to contact them directly. We just imported 3,900 10/1 SAT scores this morning, so a large number of files just changed to complete. If you took the 10/1 SAT with Writing, those scores are suppose to be sent to us on 10/30.

We are caught up completely on importing documents. If your documents were submitted by the 10/22 deadline, it will be considered for Early Action. If a document is not in, you need to take steps ASAP.

Your Steps

Be sure to check your Status Page to make sure you are complete!  If items you have sent are not showing up on your Status Page, double-check with your counselor, College Board, ACT, etc. to make sure that it was sent.  If a document was sent and it has been more than 5 business days, I would suggest either re-sending the document(s) or contacting us. We do not accept faxed documents, so make sure to send it electronically or by mail.

Now that you have submitted your application (and it is hopefully complete), take a few minutes to relax and enjoy the fall weather.

Go Dawgs!
