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, who meet 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 was told that I would get my decision through the mystatus 5-10 business days after everything was received, August 22nd. Is that an accurate timeline or will it be longer?

        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. Is the transfer equivalency list a list comprised of schools that people have transferred from to UGA? Such as, if I see a random school out-of-state from the state of Indiana, does that mean you've received transfer work from that school?

        ReplyDelete
        Replies
        1. The transfer equivalency data is based on years of review of transcripts from other colleges where either applicants have taken courses or when current UGA students hav taken transient coursework.

      3. i am going to apply for fall 16 transfer admission as soon as i'm able in Jan. I do notice on the website that classes not on the transcript will not be considered. Does this mean at all or just for transfer consideration and i can have them transferred later?

      4. Hi! I was wondering if there is a difference in the acceptance rate for freshmen who apply for summer versus fall admission. I suppose I am asking if, for example, Student A has a higher chance of acceptance for applying for summer versus Student B who applied for fall. Thank you for responding to so many questions! Your time and advice is greatly appreciated.

        1. We do not make different decisions based on Summer vs Fall, and a student can change from Summer to Fall after being accepted (or the reverse). Summer is not a fall back or bridge term, it is just a different self-selected starting term. We are fine whichever term you select.

        1. I just sent out a tweet this morning that we are beginning the summer transfer review starting today, but the process is not a quick one due to the level of detail for each review. Decisions will go out daily from now until mid-March, as the deadline to apply is March 1 for summer, so the applications that are completed later will be reviewed later.

          Delete
        2. What does "not a quick one" mean? I know it's rolling, so the people that sent they're things in first will know first. But not quick..is that a few days? Or a few weeks?

          Delete
        3. You are asking me to guess about a specific timeline for an application, and I cannot do that, sorry. By the process not being a quick process, I mean that a review of just one transfer file could take up to one full day if it is from a school where we do not have a history with their coursework, if it has 3+ years of courses, etc. If we have to build the transfer work for all the incoming courses, it is very time consuming. So it is very difficult to predict when X transfer student will hear a decision.

        1. It takes a little while to match things up, and you should go by the trancript date or the application date, whichever is later. If you just applied, then give us time to match it up. If it has been 10 business days, then email admproc@uga.edu with the information.

      10. I recently submitted my application as a transfer student and when doing so I was told by the registrars office that I should mark Georgia State University as the school I attended in place of Georgia Perimeter College. Now under the status of my application page it says that my transcript from GPC and Georgia Southern (the school I currently attend) are required and have been received but that my transcript from Georgia state is required and not been received. Having never actually attended Georgia State I don't have a transcript to send in for this school. Will my application be able to considered for acceptance to UGA while Georgia State is still marked as required but not received? If not are there any steps I can take to fix this issue?

      17. So, it says that RD applicants can hear about their decision in late February if they meet EA admit criteria. What exactly is that criteria?

        ReplyDelete
        Replies
        1. There is no set criteria, but that is the best phrase I could use to have people understand February process is the same process as in Early Action. For instance, if an RD applicant would have been admitted in November during the EA decisions, they would now be admitted in February.

      19. Are fall transfer decisions sent out in the order that the applications are received? Or do you base it off of the strength of the applicant?

        Replies
        1. I suggest you review my responses for posts during Early Action, as I have said that there are no set cut-points, but instead that EA (and Feb) admits are based on an overall look at the core grades, the challenge of the coursework, and test scores (in that order), and we look at these as a whole, not as individual bars to clear. The EA posts I have done also refer to our press release that UGA posts which gives mid-ranges.

        3. I am not sure what you mean by this question. Are you saying that all RD applicants are suppose to be reviewed in the holistic process? If that is what you are saying, then you are misunderstanding our process. You can review what I have written about the review process at http://ugaadmissions.blogspot.com/p/file-review-process.html. As well, I have always stated that the only difference in the review process between EA and RD is the timing, not the reviews. As such, we look at all applicants first based on academics alone, then for a large group of students we will do a more holistic review.

          Delete
        4. So what makes you decide to look at the large group for holistic?

          Delete
        5. Again, review the file review process page at http://ugaadmissions.blogspot.com/p/file-review-process.html. We look at everyone initially based on the academic areas we have described, and for students who overall are extremely strong academically, we will offer admission. The other files are reviewed in a more holistic manner where we look at both the academic areas and the non academic areas.

        1. A huge majority of February decisions will be RD applicants, as the February decisions are identical to the November EA decisions, using the same process and review. As such, while I cannot guess about your specific case, almost all deferred students will not hear a decision in February, as they were not admitted in November, and Feb uses the same process.

        1. If you look at my most recent post, you will see that we will be releasing the February decisions on Friday, 2/26. As for making assumptions based on equivalent or higher mid-ranges, I would suggest to never make assumptions. One reason is that the GPA we calculate might be different than how you or your school calculates the GPA. Second, we look at individual subscores on the SAT and ACT, so you can't look at a composite and see what we are looking at. Third, academic rigor is subjective, not numeric based on AP/IB/DE courses, as we are looking at the whole range of courses. As such, don't assume.

      29. does UGA calculate a transfer student's GPA into the plus/minus system that UGA has before reviewing it? How far off could a calculated transfer gpa be if my gpa at my current college is 3.7 and we don't use plus/minus?

        Replies
        1. If your college has a plus/minus system, then we convert it to our plus/minus system. If your college does not have this, then there would be no way for us to know how to convert grades to plus/minus, so they come in as straight grades. GPA's can vary based on repeated classes, PE grades that we do not use in the GPA calculation, multiple college transcripts causing us to calculate on overall GPA, etc.

      51. Could a denial decision tomorrow be based on the competitiveness of your major. Say for instance their are limited spaces for your major because a lot of people are majoring in the same thing like business or science could that affect a decision?

        1. As we have said many times, major does not have an impact on a decision, as, if admitted, you can change your major before, during and after orientation. It would not make much sense to make a decision on a factor that can then be changed in a month or two.

      53. Hello,

        I have applied for Transfer in Fall of 2016 and I had my current university send my transcript to the UGA admissions office via mail. Will this effect when I receive my decision? I just learned today that your office prefers to receive transcripts via an electronic source.

      55. I applied as a Fall 2016 transfer on January 28th (almost as soon as the application opened) and my myStatus page shows that I have no red Xs. Is it true that transfer decisions have already begun to be released now based on a first come, first serve basis or have none been released yet?

      58. I have a feeling if you are the latest to hear their decision, it is more likely a denial- then they don't have the answer the phone or emails because they have left for the weekend. I would love to hear responses from all the denials regarding what time they heard their decision.

        1. I am not sure what you mean by this, but we always release decisions on Fridays in the late afternoon, and all freshman in the specific round of decisions (EA, Feb or March) hear at the same time. This is not the forum for your request for responses, especially not in the Timelines section.

        2. One more question. If I took a single course, that was listed on UGA's transfer equivalency page, by way of extended/independent learning (this was an online course), would that cause UGA to not accept the course?

        3. We are fine with online courses if they are transferable as a course in general (we do not differentiate between online vs traditional courses).

        1. A denied student can appeal, but we suggest a student contact our office first, as appeals are rarely approved, only if new information is given that is serious in nature that we did not know before (and even then not likely), and are not reviewed until late May.

      62. Hi, I just submitted my application to UGA as a transfer student coming from Georgia state university. I have 18 hours from APs and 15 from in college hours. Georgia state only recognized 15 of the 18 AP hours, so I am assuming that I am still in the allotted minimum required hours. I just submitted my transcript through parchment, by mail. I have a few questions:

        1.) Can I send UGA an eTranscript, and if so to who?

        2.) Will the transcript I sent to UGA have my APs (that I got all 4s and 5s on) show on the transcript as well? I would like to make clear that I have all requirements met and will follow through to try to fix any issues as soon as possible.

        3.) Other than completely filling out my transfer application and sending my transcripts through parchment, what else should I do?

        Thank you in advance for answering my questions.

        1. We are fine with electronic transcripts, and you can use admproc@uga.edu as the contact email. For Ga State, you need to request a specific transcript with detailed AP credit on it. The app and the transcript are all we need.

        2. Thank you for you help. I have a few more questions. I'm not sure if you know, but how would I go about requesting a detailed AP credit transcript? And what will that mean for the transcript that I already mailed out?

        3. I suggest calling the Ga State registrar and talking to them, and just gave a new one sent to replace the other one.

      64. Hello,
        I sent out my transcript to UGA by mail on the 21st of March. The faculty at my college informed me that internal processing can take up to 7 business days which means that the Transcript will be mailed out anywhere from the 21st to the 30th. My concern is that the transcript will not reach UGA on time, rendering my application ineligible for consideration. I cannot email the transcript, as this is a special request transcript to include my APs and my school states they are unable to send electronically.

        My question is, will the transcript be valid if it arrives to UGA a few days late so long as the mailing date on the transcript is any day before or on the day of Apr.1?

        And is this also the correct address for transfer students to send their transcripts too? (UGA Office of Undergraduate Admissions

        Terrell Hall room 212

        210 South Jackson Street

        Athens, GA 30602-1633.)

      70. I think you previously mentioned that by mid-February, you had over 1500 transfer applicants. I'm wondering at this point, about where are you in the process of completing that first 1500? Do you think your office has at least gone through 1000 applicants so far? Just curious as I applied towards the end of February and am anxiously awaiting a decision! At 50 a day, this process could take until the end of May. Or do you think it will be complete more towards the beginning of May? Thanks.

      71. I applied about same time as my friend for 2016 fall semester. However, my friend already got her result back, but I have not even though we submitted around the same time. Is it because I sent paper transcript rather than electronic transcript? I have been waiting for quite long time after I submitted everything.

        1. I am not able to guess about a decision date, sorry. As for a friend who applied about the same time, "about" is not the same thing as "the same time". Since we can only review a limited number of applicants a day, just be patient. The only difference with paper vs electronic documents is that mailed docs take longer to get to us.

      72. Hi, I just received a notice that my application was removed due to missing information after the deadline to submit transfer application materials. I had my application submitted and my transcripts sent but one of my previous schools delayed sending my application for 3 weeks. What can I do? Everything else arrived on time and everything was ordered way in advice. I don't think that its necessarily fair because the school delayed sending my transcript, it's out of my control.

        1. Send an email to admproc@uga.edu so we can look at the situation. Two things to think about: Did you leave off any colleges on the application that you attended, as we need all transcripts from all colleges. Are all transcripts up to date (we at times have applicants who have applied before, and there transcript is dated from 2015 and has no new terms/grades).
