*The Spring Freshman Application Deadline is August 15, and the required materials are the same as Regular Decision.

Transfer Applicants

The Summer and Fall transfer application will be accessible online in mid to late January, and the Spring application in late May.

Fall Term - April 1
Spring Term - August 15
Summer Term - March 1

Transfer deadlines are for both the application and for all college transcripts. UGA will only review academic work that is completed and sent to our office by the deadline. For example, Fall transfer applicants have a deadline of 4/1, so we can only review work completed and into our office by 4/1. We cannot use work from a Spring term where classes are in progress and will be completed after the deadline.

Required Application Materials
  • Application and Application Fee
  • Official transcripts from ALL colleges attended (even dual enrollment, transient, or other work)
  • UGA will only use the work that is completed and is on the college transcript(s) in determining transferable hours, transfer GPA, etc. We do not review work that is in progress, so applicants must meet the transfer review criteria based on what is on the transcript(s) by the deadline.

 If a deadline falls on a Sunday or a federal holiday, the postmark deadline will be extended to the first business day following the published deadline.

  1. I am wondering why does UGA make their deadline for transfer students on April 1st? Why does UGA make it to where a student who does have at least 30 hours and at least a 3.2 in their first year of college is not allowed to go to UGA until the spring semester? What is the reasoning behind doing that? I looked at Clemson University and they have theirs set up for June 1st. Makes me wonder why can't UGA make their Fall deadline at this time so kids who do work really hard and have good grades can get into UGA for the Fall semester after one year.

    1. Every college is different on their deadlines, and the reason behind their deadlines. Here is my explanation of our 4/1 Fall transfer deadline:

      We have set up our deadlines so that we can make decisions in a timely fashion (so you do not have to wait until late July for a decision), and so that we can keep our requirements and enrollment at a steady rate. If we shifted our deadline to late May/early June, we would have to raise the requirements (more students would apply and be considered for the same number of spaces), and we could not make decisions until after June 1 for most students, so it would become a very late decision date.

      I would suggest looking at transferring into UGA for Spring of the following year after you meet the requirements.

  5. I am looking to transfer to UGA in Fall 2016. When i go to look up what credits at my current university will transfer to UGA, I am told to look at general credits that have transferred as of 2013.

    1. It sounds like we have never officially reviewed the coursework in question, and as such there is no transfer equivalency for these courses. As such, you would need to apply in order for us to review your transcript and determine transfer equivalencies.

I graduated from high school almost 10 years ago but have graduated from two vocational schools. Do you accept credits from vocational schools if they are ACCET accredited? Secondly, since my ACTs were taken in high school, my scores have been archived. Does the student (myself) have them sent to you or is there a different way of receiving my scores?

    1. We are not looking at ACCET accreditation, but instead we are looking at Regional Accreditation such as SACS, among other things. Here is a quick cut/paste from our transfer equivalency page:

      General Rules for Transfer Equivalency
      Academic College Degree Level Credit from an Institution accredited by their regional Association of Colleges and schools generally transfers (Bachelor’s Degree). Transfer/General Education Core at a Community or Technical College should transfer (Associate Degree). Non-Academic, Non-Accredited or Non-College level credit will not Transfer (Applied Associate Degree, Diploma, Certificate, and Continuing Education)

      As for the ACT, that can only be requested by the student.

    2. Thank you for the quick response! I have one more two part question. Am I to apply as Nontraditional via Transfer? If so, should I still include my transcripts from the vocational schools?

    3. I would guess you would apply as a non-traditional student (and yes, send the transcripts), and if we see that your courses would transfer we would then change you to a transfer applicant.

    7. On the application, we ask you to enter your intended major, and a second one that you have an interest in at this time. When you enter in this information, we will add the first major to your actual student record, but we like to know the academic interests of the applicant pool. You will not have two majors, only one. If you enroll at UGA, you can always change your major, drop a major, etc. We do not limit you to staying in the major you initially selected. You seem to have a great deal of questions about the transfer process, so I suggest you attend one of our transfer information sessions, https://dar.uga.edu/visit/. The person leading this can answer a wide range of transfer questions.

    1. It first depends on if you have any AP/IB credit at the college you will be attending, and if that work will be on the college transcript as specific coursework with a course number designation and specific hours (like ENGL 1101-3 hours). If it is on the transcript as such, we can use this as transfer work. As well, if you have DE credit, we can use this work as transfer work. As for being at another college for a year after HS graduation, this means that we would be fine To consider you for transfer admission at UGA in the Fall of 2017 if you have the 30 hours of work completed, strong grades, and have a year of work prior to enrolling (so by August of 2017).

      Delete
    2. One of your requirements is that it hasn to completed, so if its second semester and the deadline is in April , your courses won't be completed till May. That's why I thought Fall 2017 would not work, forcing me to then apply for Spring 2017.

      Delete
    3. it is one year of college prior to enrolling, so you would have 1 year done by August, as long as you then have 30 hours completed by 4/1 (so summer work, fall work, ap work showing on the transcript, DE work, etc.).

      Delete
    4. So to confirm ( as I don't have AP work), if you do not have 30 completed hours by 4/1, you will no be considered regardless of the courses in progress during your second term

      Delete
    5. As listed in the details of this post:

      Transfer deadlines are for both the application and for all college transcripts. UGA will only review academic work that is completed and sent to our office by the deadline. For example, Fall transfer applicants have a deadline of 4/1, so we can only review work completed and into our office by 4/1. We cannot use work from a Spring term where classes are in progress and will be completed after the deadline.

      As such, we cannot use the in-progress work in the calculation of the GPA or in the hours completed determination. If you take summer work and fall work that is 30 hours of transfer work completed, that is fine.

    1. Students can apply for RD in September, and it is still RD. The only difference with EA vs RD is the timing of things, not how we actually review things. As well, the mid-Dec date is a priority deadline, but people who apply after this can still be considered for scholarships. If you apply in December and send in an initial transcript in December, we will calculate a GPA based on the work on the transcript at that time. If you then send a follow up transcript, we will have it in your file for our readers to look at, but we cannot recalculate 25,000 GPA's with fall work in the short span, so the GPA would not be recalculated.

  42. Hi, I am currently completing my transfer application for Spring 2017 and it is asking for my completion date. Is that my estimated completion date for my In Progress credit or my graduation?

    1. Estimated completion date of your current and/or in progress work.

  43. Hi! I am looking to apply this fall for the fall 2017 semester as an incoming freshman. I am from Texas and my high school does not send transcripts on our behalf to out of state schools. I have requested an official copy of my transcript and I will need to mail it on my own. What is an address I can send it to? I've looked on the website but I have not been able to find a good address. Please let me know what I need to do! I look forward to applying!

    1. Our address is UGA Admissions, 210 South Jackson Street, Athens, GA 30602-1633, and it is on the bottom of our admissions website. Don't send this in yet, as we are still working on final HS and college transcripts for Fall, and I don't want it to get lost in the shuffle. I suggest sending it in after 9/1.

  44. I had ordered college board to send my SAT score to UGA, but it needs about 10 days working days and may reach UGA around 14/8 - 15/8, am I counted as apply within deadline?

  45. I am applying as a transfer student for spring 2017... can I bring a physical copy of my transcript from my current college to UGA instead of mailing it? I know it sounds crazy, but I just want to make sure it gets there before the 15th. I live pretty close and I would feel safe doing it this way.

    1. We are fine if you hand deliver a sealed envelope from the college. Again, it must be a transcript in an envelope sealed by the college.

  46. Hello, I am planning on applying for UGA EA when the application opens up. However, it says that they are requiring an ACT writing score. I only took the SAT with writing, can I still apply for EA? Thanks!

    1. I am not sure where you are seeing that we require the ACT (or the ACT with Writing), but if you can give me a url of the website page we can look at it. Both here and on the lead in to applying EA, https://www.admissions.uga.edu/prospective-students/first-year/early-action, we state that either the SAT or ACT is required, but that the essay is not required. Up until this year we required an ACT or SAT Writing score, but not anymore. I hope this helps.

  47. Hello, thanks for the fast reply,

    It says it right here that we have to have taken both the ACT and SAT to apply? Or am I reading it incorrectly?

    https://www.admissions.uga.edu/prospective-students/first-year/fy-deadlines

    Also, after I made an account on the UGA site, it says "SAT/ACT scores must be sent in by the testing agency, and we must have an ACT Writing score. The October SAT is the last exam UGA can use for Early Action admission, and the January SAT is the last exam UGA can use for Regular Decision admission."

    Does that mean the ACT writing is required?

    1. On the page you mention, it states for the EA deadline "Official SAT and/or ACT scores (must be both taken and scores requested to be sent to UGA by 10/15)". This means that we will take the SAT or the ACT, with the and/or meaning we can take one or the other, and it does not mention the Writing portion.

      As for you making an account on the application site, that is for students applying for Spring 2017 and previous, as we are changing to a new system. For Spring 2017 and before, we required the Writing, but not for Summer/Fall 2017 and after. The current application page states that the new app will open on 9/1 in a new system and not to start an app in the old system if you are looking at summer/fall 2017.

      So you only need an ACT or an SAT, neither needs the essay part, and the new application will open on 9/1.

  48. Hi, I have a question about high school curriculum requirements. I'm a High school senior, but I so far only have 3 Units for English (9th Lit/Comp, 10th Lit/Comp, A.P Lang) so far. The same goes for Math and Science. Although I do have the required 3 units for Social Sciences and 2 Units for foreign language, I don't yet have 4 units of the remaining necessary subjects. I am currently taking the 4th class of each respective subject (A.P Lit, Physics, and Pre-Cal). Can I apply with just these classes so far? Or do I have to wait until this year's second semester so I can have some sort of proof that I am indeed taking the 4th Unit of said subjects?

    1. Yes, you can apply with these requirements in progress, as most HS seniors are in the same situation. These requirements are focused on once you graduate from HS, so it takes into account all four years of HS.

    2. Ok, Thanks! Just needed some clarification.

  49. I have attended 3 different high schools (only one is in Georgia). Freshman year I took Geometry, sophomore year I took algebra 2, and junior year I took a semester of precalculus; however I moved schools at the beginning of the second semester and my new school was unable to place me in a class other than Algebra 2. This class was different than the Algebra 2 I had taken at my other school content-wise, as it was more of a survey math class. I am currently taking AP Statistics as a senior. Do I meet the requirements to apply or do I fall under extenuating circumstances? Thank you.

    1. You have taken Alg I, Geometry, and Algebra II, and are completing Statistics. As such, you will have completed 4 HS level math classes (with one being in 8th grade I assume), with one being beyond Algebra II. As such, you are fine.

    2. if I was not given high school credit for my math class in middle school is that still okay?

      Delete
    3. That is okay, as there are two areas (Math and Foreign Language) where we are good with the 8th grade course as it leads into the 9th grade course which is a step above. For instance, if you take Spanish 2 in 9th grade, we understand that Spanish 1 was taken in middle school, either in 8th grade or 7/8, and are good with that even if it does not show on a HS transcript.

  50. Hi, I am in the process of applying for colleges. It seems as though the October 2016 SAT scores would not be available until after the deadline of 10/15. I am wondering, if I sent in my previous SAT scores for early action and then I sent the October scores later if that would be included in the Early Action review process in admissions?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. As stated above in the EA deadlines section, if you both take and request an SAT or ACT by the 10/15 EA deadline, then we can use them for EA. This means do not wait to review the October scores before sending them, as that might be too late. We are fine if you send the earlier scores now and make sure the October scores are a part of your initial score sends when the test is taken.

      Delete
    2. Just to clarify. If I take the October 1st, 2016 SAT and is sent once scored (As in I choose the institution to send the scores before the exam day), would this exam be eligible for the early action admission?

      Delete
    3. Yes. Review the Deadlines information again, as the test score bullet says "Official SAT or ACT (Essay not required) scores sent to UGA by the testing agency, test must be taken and requested sent to UGA by the 10/15 deadline". So the 10/1 SAT is taken before the 10/15 deadline, and if you request it when you sign up, that means it is also requested before the 10/15 deadline.

    1. If you review the sections in this page, you will see that our freshman EA deadline (fall or summer) is 10/15 and our RD deadline is 1/15. If you are referring to transfer applicants, it is 4/1 as stated in the transfer section.

  54. Hi! I took the ACT on September 10, 2016 and want to apply for early action. I sent the scores to UGA. Should I wait until those scores have been released to submit my application or should I go ahead and submit my application and then the scores will be added later when they are sent?

    1. We are fine if you apply and then send in scores, as we easily import the scores electronically and then match them to the application file automatically. As such, you can go ahead and complete/submit the application, just make sure to keep track of the status page to make sure we receive the scores.

  55. I am a senior in high school and have passed the math classes: Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, and I am currently in AP Statistics. Will these classes count as my 4 years of mathematics or do I have to have the subjects described on the requirement page?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. On the College Prep Page of the application, it says that you must have completed Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2 and a fourth year of math beyond that, and then gives a few (but not all) examples. It then gives a link to the Staying on Course document from the state that gives a detailed list of the courses for all the areas including math. AP Statistics is a fourth year of math beyond the initial three, and it is on the state list, so you are fine.

    1. I have gone in and corrected the email on your application, and had a new email go out to the counselor. As well, if your counselor has logged into the counselor portal we provide, they can submit the school report from there without the email being sent to them.
