*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.

  2. I am currently at 29 credit hours and a 4.0 GPA on those credit hours by April 1st. Is there any chance that I am considered for Fall semester? Another question, If I am not even considered, is there a way to get that one last hour through UGA online somehow? (my current school does not have a class that ends by deadline)

    1. Applicants must have 30 completed hours by the application deadline to be eligible to transfer. You are not able to take courses at UGA until you have been admitted.

  3. I am currently a Senior in High School. I am a Dual Enrollment student at my school. I already have 12 hours under this scenario and will have 24 more hours by the time I graduate for a total of 36 hours. Do I need to apply as a Freshman or Transfer student?

  5. Hello!

    I'm a bit confused about the school evaluation forms. My school sends our own evaluation forms along with our transcripts, would these qualify or is the evaluation form unique to UGA? On myStatus my transcript is marked as received however the school evaluation form is not, so I do not know if that means I need to fill out a separate school evaluation form or if mine just hasn't been processed yet.

    1. We are fine with a school's own counselor form, it just takes a little longer to review it and make sure it is what we need (occasionally we receive HS profiles instead), so just be patient as we enter it into our system.

  6. I am attempting to apply for the Foundation Fellowship and Bernard Ramsey Honors Scholarship, and I have reached where I am supposed to attach some sort of resume. What is the resume? Is there a certain form to fill out I've missed or is it supposed to be formatted like a work resume?

  9. I currently attend GSU what class matches with PEDB here. The Transfer chart only say KINS****. Does that mean there is no class at GSU that matches with PEDB. I am going to transfer Fall 2015 as a Junior.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If you look at the transfer equivalency site, you will see a default at the top for GSU KINS classes, and so a majority of the 11XX KINS classes come in as PEDB courses, and some higher than that. So anything that is PE based (flag football, bowling, basketball, etc.) would be PEDB. Dance courses would come in as dance, though.

      Delete
    2. Does Personal Fitness count as a course that would fall under PE Based Classes. Georgia State University does not offer any PE Based Classes

      Delete
    3. When you said GSU, the first school to pop up was Ga Southern, not Ga State. I am not sure about Personal Fitness, as many of these come in as a Health and Wellness class, not PE. Sorry, I just do not know.

    4. Would i just have to take this class as junior at UGA or would i have to take it during the summer before I attend the Fall 2014 term

    5. I believe the UGA PE 1 hour requirement is just needed for graduation, so it can be taken through senior year. It can be taken at UGA or at another college.

  10. Hi Dr. Graves,
    I am currently a senior at Parkview High School, my absolute dream is to attend The University Of Georgia. I am just curious as to your thoughts as to what I should seriously work on. I have a 3.7 GPA, 8 AP classes, and sadly a 1500 SAT score. I am taking the ACT in December, I have been getting tutored and am hoping that score is successful. Out of curiosity, is one standardized test looked at higher than the other, I did awfully on the SAT and am really working hard for my ACT to be good. Is one test looked at more? Also when I send in my application I will not have an ACT score yet but I did it so that it sends directly to the school, is there somewhere on my application I say that it is coming.

    PS: my mom shared with me she knows you and recently did a photo shoot of your family... Paige Knudsen, how cool!

    1. We are fine with either the SAT or the ACT, and we do not prefer either test over the other. We will only use what is the best score. You do not need to let us know about the future score, as it will tie into your application directly, and you should see it fairly quickly on your myStatus page after it is sent. Say hi to your mom, and let me know if you have any more questions!

  11. When getting a teacher recommendation, how would I determine which teacher would be the best? What is important, the class that he/she teaches, their education level or their words of recommendation?

  18. Hello, I am looking to transfer to UGA and I will have 30+ hours by the deadline. However, I looked at the "transfer equivalency" page on the UGA website and some of my classes are listed as "STAT1D**" meaning there is not a direct transfer, but it is considered a transfer elective. Does the mean classes that are not direct transfers are subtracted from the total hours considered thus dropping me below 30 hours?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Transfer electives are treated the same as courses that transfer directly as another course, so we will use the grades, hours, etc. for both admission review and in how they come into UGA.

    1. It is best if you complete the application first and then have supporting materials sent in, with the only exception being test scores, as these are electronically stored and match with a file immediately. Once you apply and your app is in our system, there will be a place on the myStatus for you to enter your counselor and teacher emails.

    1. That is a generic term I use to refer to the overall academic profile of admitted EA students.

I was just wondering, do you know if I will still have access to UGA Mail? I have heavily communicated with my advisor, departments, and offices.

    2. Do you know if I will keep the same UGA ID# and User ID when I apply again? (Since I will be re-applying with same personal email as same student). Thanks for answering all my questions. I asked a lot of them last Spring before I was going to apply for Spring 2015, and in August. I just felt like Fall would be better for me, and I feel confident enough to be admitted again. I plan on re-applying day 1 of the application.

    3. You might need to contact our IT team prior to applying for Fall, as there is a short period of overlap time between Spring applications still being in our system and starting a fall app. You would email adm-tech@uga.edu when the fall app opens, and they will work with you. You will keep the same ID number.

    1. The next application cycle you would be able to look at would be Spring 2016. Saying this, because you will have a GED and will most likely not have completed certain HS classes that are required for UGA, you might want to look at attending a 2 year college and then transferring into UGA.

  53. I already applied for regular decision and the SAT scores I got from my test in January are better than the ones I applied with. Since I just got the scores back today and I requested them to be sent to UGA automatically(before I actually took the test), will they be seen during my evaluation?

    1. Our system is set up to match updated test scores automatically, and to have the new scores be a part of the review process, so you will be fine.

    1. There are no specific grades or test scores you will need, as it depends on you as compared to the other applicants. My biggest suggestion is that you challenge yourself in the classroom and work hard in these classes, as your high school academics are the best indicator of success in college classes.

  58. Good morning Dr. Graves,

    I wasn't exactly sure where to post this, so I'm just doing it here. Anyway, I am planning on taking a class or two through a local college this summer. I have already looked at the page about transferring credits from that school to UGA. Does the ability to transfer those credits still stand if the courses are online?

    Thank you!

    1. We do not differentiate between different types of classes (online vs in a seat), so online coursework is fine as long as it is from an accredited university. Make sure you are comfortable with this style, though, as it is not always the best method for everyone.

  59. I'm applying for dual enrollment for fall 2015, and on the admissions criteria page, it says that applicants need to submit letters of support from a parent and a school official. Are these supposed to be mailed in or is there a place online to submit them?
    Also, on a different web page, an additional criteria of writing a personal statement of intention is listed. Is this also supposed to be submitted, like the above letters?

    1. The student and the parent would write a seperate letter and mail it in, while the school official is taken care of with the counselor form.

  63. Hello, I am inquiring about UGA's online program.. I attended the University of North GA for the Fall 2014 semester. I have a 4.0 GPA with 30 credit hours. I am interested in Fall 2015 for UGA's online program, but I see the deadline for transfer students was April 1st.. does that apply to the online program as well? If so, then the next available option is Spring 2016, correct?

    (I apologize if this comment was posted more than once. My computer is giving me grief.)

    1. I suggest you review the online BBA program and then reach out to their office, as they can help you understand more about the program. The deadlines are the same as for Athens based programs, so you would be looking at a future term. In addition, the program requires students to have 60 transferable hours to be considered for admissions. See https://online.uga.edu/online-offerings/undergraduate/bba-bachelor-of-business-administration for details.

  64. Is there a cap on how many degrees transfer students can come in with? I double majored at Georgia State and received two bachelor degrees there but am looking to get a third in computer science. Also, when will the transfer application open up for Spring 2016?

    1. We do not have a limit on how many degrees a student has when they decide to enroll here as a second degree or post bac student. Remember though that you will need to have at least 45 hours of UGA coursework to receive a degree from here. As for the Spring application, it will open up in late May.

  66. I am going to be a freshman at UNG in the fall and I'm hoping to transfer to UGA for next fall. I currently have about 10 hours of credit from AP and a summer class I am taking. I'm signed up for 13 hours in the fall and will have 15 in the spring. Since spring hours won't be considered, if I take CLEP exams, will those hours be counted as credit by April 1?

  68. Hi I'm a rising senior and I just started on my application to apply for Early Action (a little more than a month before I start my senior year). But the online First year application won't let me choose the option of Early Action. Once I fill in the bubble next to "First Year Applicant", the choice for Early Action disappears and I'm only left with the option of "Regular Decision". Also, it asks for which semester I intend to begin my enrollment and it only offers the option of Spring 2016. Is that correct?

  69. Hello, I'm about to apply UGA for Spring 2016. Now i've been attending GPC for 2yrs and I made both GPA and credit hrs for transfer. But I want to make sure what I need to submit to UGA except online application and transcript. Since I'm F-1 student, i wonder there's any other documents that I send before or after deadline. Could you tell me what I have to bring?

    1. If you have only attended college at GPC, then we would need the application, the GPC transcript, and I am guessing your English proficiency is taken care of with ENGL 1101/1102 at GPC with an average GPA in those 2 classes of a 2.50 or better. In addition, we will need a Certificate of Finance and the added materials for this (see https://www.admissions.uga.edu/prospective-students/international/transfer-international). The Certificate of Finance information can come after the deadline, but do not delay with this data.

    1. If you apply EA and are deferred, you would then compkete part II of the application (the essays), and we would move forward with the next step of the review. If you are denied EA, you then are denied and you cannot apply any further.
