Timelines

Freshman Timelines

 In general, there are three times during the year that UGA releases freshman decisions:

  • The Summer/Fall freshman application will be accessible online in late August/early September, and the Spring freshman application will be available in late May
  • Late November to Early December - EA Decisions released
  • Late February - Admit decisions for RD or deferred EA applicants meeting EA admit criteria
  • Late March - Final Decisions for all remaining RD and deferred EA freshman applicants 
For the December and February decisions, the focus is on the academic areas of a student, including grades, the rigor of a student's curriculum and SAT/ACT scores. For March, we are going through a detailed file reading process that looks at everything in the file.

See the Admissions Deadlines page for more details on the specific deadlines and required materials for admission consideration.

    Transfer Timelines

    In general, transfer decisions are sent out based upon the term for which a student has applied, and the time is based upon when we are able to review the files and how many files we have to review. Transfer decisions are made daily during these times, but we are not able to estimate when a student will receive a decision, as it depends on how many overall applicants there are and how challenging a file is to review:
    • The Summer/Fall transfer application will be accessible online in mid-late January, and the Spring application in late May
    • Summer Transfers - Generally, UGA reviews a majority of the files in mid-February through the beginning of March, with a limited number of decisions coming before and/or after this time frame due to other factors.
    • Fall Transfers - Generally, the review process begins in mid-March and goes through the beginning of May, starting with the files that were completed first and working from there. In addition, files with more complicated transcripts or multiple transcripts may take longer to review.
    • Spring Transfers - Generally, UGA begins review of Spring files in August, and will finish most of the decisions by late September.
    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.

        1. I believe you might have mis-read our information, as we state that you should give us 5-10 business days from a transcript being sent in until it shows up on the myStatus page, not 5-10 days before a decision. We expect a majority of Spring transfer decisions will be made by the end of Sept.

        2. The registrar's office is working on this now. It has to do with our new system and things not displaying/loading correctly. I do not have an exact timeframe for a solution, but it should be well before you enroll. You do not have to do anything.

      5. I know this isn't an admissions question, but if my USG school requires 12 hours for a Core Area to be completed and UGA requires 9 hours for the same Core Area (Which I've taken), and I transfer to UGA without having completed it at my school, would you assume that the core area would be satisfied once I transferred, considering that I would then be under UGA's core requirements as a UGA student once I got there?

        1. Yeah but the school I'm transferring from requires more credits in a category than UGA does, so I am wondering what will happen if I don't complete the category when I transfer to UGA. 3 of my classes in the category are counted in UGA's category (UGA requires only 3), but my school requires 4 classes in the category. Since I'm transferring, I guess that category will be considered complete when I get to UGA, but I don't know.

      9. UGA counts my HPS 1000 class as 2 hours of health, and 1 hour as PE. It transfers as an elective. Does the 1 PE hour still count towards credits earned, even though UGA gives an 'S' grade for it?

        ReplyDelete
        Replies
        1. UGA will transfer in 1 hour of PE work as an S grade, so if you have no other PE work that has already counted as 1 hour, then yes, it will count as the 1 hour credit.

      10. My PE class (1 hour) that transferred in is listed as being taken during Spring 2015 on Degree Works. Is this a computer problem? I took it Fall 2013.

        Replies
        1. I am just concerned because if I decide to take 18 hours (the max) in Spring at UGA, the fact that it thinks I'd be taking the PE during Spring would prevent me from taking 18 hours, since it thinks I'd be taking 19 hours.

          Delete
        2. There is a difference between transfer work and UGA work, so this should not be an issue. You can work with your advisor once you attend orientation to clear this up.

      13. If a class transfers as a core elective, does that mean UGA will count it as a core class for the area and satisfy the area, just that there is no direct equivalent for it at UGA?

        ReplyDelete
        Replies
        1. if a class transfers as a core elective, it means that there is no direct equivalent course at UGA, but the course will transfer and it will help to satisfy that core area (most core areas are more than 1 course), but as for specifics, that would have to wait for a discussion with your academic advisor.

          Delete
        2. So not to get to specific, if a core area requires 2 classes, and I transfer over with 1 core elective for that area, essentially I'd only need to take 1 more class at UGA? As long as the class doesn't have to be specific I'd assume, like for science and math majors.

          Delete
        3. I really can't answer core questions in depth, as there is great variety in core courses that can be taken, comparison with UGA's core, what major you are in, etc.

        4. Alright, I understand. I was just curious because one of my classes has 1D**L attached to it as the transfer course for UGA, and my major doesn't require a specific course in that core area, just 2 courses. I'm hoping my class counts as 1 of the required 2 classes when I transfer, which I believe it will. Thanks!

      15. To apply to Terry, all core classes must be satisfied and 60 hours earned. In YOUR opinion, would you assume that 60 hours earned has to come from core classes alone, or just 60 hours in general, including classes that transferred over as general electives?

        Replies
        1. I ask because I'm transferring for Spring and when I finish that semester, I will have completed all core areas for UGA, but only 55 of my hours will be from core areas. 6 of my hours transfer as general electives, so I'd still have 60+ hours.

      16. Degree Works showed last week how my classes came in, but now it is counting all of my classes, even core classes, as arts/science electives and general electives, and not putting my classes in the right areas. Is this a computer problem? I am a transfer for Spring.

        1. Sorry if I missed your question. Generally (unless it involves multiple PE hours), a course's hours will transfer in as the same number of hours. It may involve adding an elective hour (example: 4 hour language class might come in as a 3 hour language class and one language elective), but the hours should equal out.

      23. I know UGA requires 2 science courses and 1 must have a lab. My class transfers as SCIE1D**L, and it has a lab and is worth 4 hours. Do you know if UGA will recognize that the class HAS a lab, thereby satisfying the 1 lab science required when I transfer? It is just weird because UGA does 3/1 credits for lab/science courses, my school just does 4 hours and 1 overall grade, even though my class is "with lab."

          Delete
        3. Basiclly, does the fact that my USG school does not split up the lab and the class mean that UGA will only see my class as a science class, and not a science class with lab?

        4. I'm just worried because UGA requires at least 1 lab science, and if my lab science doesn't get counted as having a lab, it'll be useless.

      25. Last year I was a senior in HS and decided to do Dual Enrollment at my local community college. I gained 31 credit hours from Dual Enrollment by the time I graduated from my HS. If I was trying to apply to UGA in the Spring, would I still be considered a first year freshman, or a transfer student since I haven't been in college a full year after graduating but I still meet all of the requirements to be considered a "sophomore"? And looking at all my classes, all the credits did seem to be transferrable to UGA.

        Replies
        1. Are you attending college now? If so (attending college after HS graduation), you would be a transfer student. But to be eligible for transfer consideration, we want a student to have a year of college after HS graduation (not in terms of transfer credits, but in terms of attending a college after HS grad), so you would not meet those requirements until Summer 2015 term (you would have completed Fall & Spring term at another college prior to attending UGA).

        2. Do you look at the overall GPA of accepted students when reviewing their final term grades before they enroll, or specific grades? For example, say I am accepted for Spring as a transfer and make 3 B's, 1 A, and 1 C this semester. Would the fact that I made a C look bad?

        I am planning to take the SAT on October 11th, 2014, and will have the CollegeBoard automatically send my score from that test. I also took the SAT on March 8, 2014 and an SAT II on June 7, 2014. On the CollegeBoard site, there are two options:

        1. Send the scores I already have immediately, and have the future score automatically sent as soon as it is available.
        2. As soon as my future score is available, have all of the scores (including previous) automatically sent.

        Option #2 is less expensive, but I can do #1 if that is necessary. I am concerned that my previous scores will not be considered if I send them as option #2 because they may not arrive by October 22. Is that true?

      47. Just out of curiosity, do you know when transfers should apply for housing? Or when it will be available for Spring?

      48. When is the commitment fee for the spring term of 2015 due?

        ReplyDelete
      49. I know I should ask the housing office, but do you think most contracts are 11 months? I'm transferring in for Spring, I don't know if I could dorm for just Spring or if I'd have to sign an 11-month contract.

      50. I sent in my application fee waiver over a week ago after completing my online application, and myStatus still says the fee waiver has not been received. Should I be worried?

        1. We generally say give us 5-10 business days to take care of an item that has been sent in, so please be patient as we match it up and review it.

      51. If I take a class as a core class, and I'm at another USG school, would you transfer it over as a core class that counts as a core class for UGA, even if there is no direct match? Such as, **D means that it transfers as core, I assume.

        1. Yes, the **D means core, so it would come in as a core class.

      53. I am a transfer student for Spring 2015. What does the MATH 1GXX designation exactly mean under Area I - Foundation Courses in Degree Works? Does that mean it satisfies Math 1113 which is a requirement for Terry College of Business?

        ReplyDelete
        Replies
        1. The G designation means it satisfies a core area course, but I cannot guess if it would satisfy MATH 1113. You would need to work with a Terry advisor on this.

      54. How can I work with a Terry Advisor prior to December Orientation to see if I need to schedule a Math Placement Exam? If I have satisfied Math 1113, I would like to know sooner so that I do not schedule a placement exam.

        1. You would go to the Bulletin and access your major, and it will have a contact person, so an example would be for accounting, see http://bulletin.uga.edu/MajorsGeneral.aspx?MajorId=1

        2. I did that and they told me since I am a pre-business major, I need to go to Franklin college of Arts for Pre-advising since I am Not yet applied/accepted into Terry college of business. Is there somewhere I can verify 'required placement exams' in 'DegreeWorks' document?

      55. Hi!
        Im a spring 2015 transfer and on my application I put that I was taking classes at my current school this semester. I ended up changing my mind and taking the semester off. Do I have to submit another transcript to show that I did not take any classes, before I can register at orientation?

        1. No, we will not need another transcript.

      56. I know this is Admissions, but if I have 27 hours completed by end of next Spring and take 3 hours over Summer, would I be eligible at UGA to renew HOPE? Or do you have to complete 30 hours by end of Spring and not Summer.

      57. Mr. Graves,
        How many applications you have left to review and approximately how many are you all making decisions for per day? I am just wondering as I have not received a determination yet and I would like to know as soon as possible so that I can make other arrangements if I am not accepted. Thank you.

        1. I was not in the office today, so I do not know this information, sorry. We only have a small number to go though, but the ones now are more difficult, so it takes much longer for each file.

      58. Hello DGraves,

        It is well into October and my status has not changed on my application. I have been checking religiously everyday. I have not received anything in the mail either. My status states everything has been received so I am a little worried. Like many other transfers I need time to make preparations to move to GA if I am accepted. I wanted to follow up with you to make sure I'm not missing anything.

        Thank you in advance,
        Tatiana Thomas

        1. Right now, we are 5 business days into October, so do not panic. As for your file, you have attended 3 different colleges with a fair amount of work that we have little to no experience with, so it takes a little longer to do this type of review. Thank you for your patience. I show that we have everything, but a case like yours takes time to review.

          Delete
        2. I totally understand. Thank you, I feel better knowing that everything is there at least.

          Fingers crossed,
          Tatiana

        3. oh! I re-read your message and you should just have two college transcripts. I only went to two community colleges after high school.

      60. Do you know if it costs money to register for orientation? I've already committed and is there a way to change your orientation date once you've selected it, such as if something comes up and I need a later date?

        1. Your deposit goes to the orientation cost, so there is no additional fee. As well, you can contact the orientation office if you need to change dates.

      61. I am a current Nursing major at my college and am planning to apply as a transfer student for Fall 2015. However, I know UGA doesn't have a nursing program, but I would love to be a part of the university, even if it means just getting the rest of my core classes done. What does UGA do for these kind of students?

        1. We would treat you as a transfer student and you would work with the pre-med advisor when you enrolled to stay on track with your academic plans.

        1. If you are a student at UGA and then take a transient class at another college for the summer, you are still a UGA student. As such, you would just continue with signing up for classes, working with your advisor, etc. Just make sure to send us a copy of the transcript so we can post credit.

      65. I am a transfer student for Spring 2015 and need to know what is the process of reviewing a Foreign Language course credit to be applied to Category IV core? It currently shows as Elective in 'DegreeWorks' although it does satisfy area core IV. Not sure what criteria was used to place it as an Elective?

        Replies
        1. You would need to work with that specific language department to have them review the course and see if it can be matched to a UGA course for articulation purposes, and if not, what other steps need to happen.
