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 transfer application will be accessible online in December, the Fall application in mid February, 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.

      4. I am a freshman currently at KSU. If I apply for Spring 2015 and have 30 transferable credit hours with a VERY good GPA, do you think I would be competitive? My question is, do you think only having 30 hours would hurt my decision? Would I have a better chance at getting admitted with 45 or 60 hours? Or is GPA and major really the main factor of decisions?

        1. If you look at the instructions page of the Transfer Equivalency site, you will see:

          University System of Georgia Requirement Satisfying Elective

          Example: SPAN1001 = SPAN1T**P Prefix (SPAN), class level (1), transfer designation (T**) Requirement Satisfying (P) Reasons: Satisfies University System of Georgia schools (including UGA) requirement, but no direct equivalent UGA class, or insufficient credit hours. P and Q satisfy first and second Area F language requirements, and Z satisfies other University System of Georgia requirement

        2. I noticed my Spanish class was a 3 hour credit course, while UGAs is a 4 hour credit course. Does this mean this class will not transfer due to different credit hours even though it has the same course number and title as UGAs? Could it count towards my core classes for World Languages and Cultures? Thank you for your help!

          Delete
        3. If it is shown as a transfer course, it will transfer in, even if the hours are different. Generally, this is why there may not be an exact match. As for counting for the core area, I could not guess, and you would have to wait and see if you are admitted, and then speak with an advisor.

      7. Hello,
        I am applying for transfer for fall of 2014, and when I sent in my application I put that I had completed 33 hours because I thought my freshmen seminar class would not count towards my hours because of what the main page says about seminars not transferring. However, I saw an older comment posted here on this matter, and on the transfer equivalency page it states that my KSU seminar does transfer, so I technically have 36 hours. Do I need to email undergraduate admissions about this or will they see that I actually have 36 hours from my transcript? I hope they don't think I can't add up hours!
        Thank You!

        1. As stated in this page, in the Transfer Timelines: "Transfer decisions are made daily during these times". The down time impacts when we are able to start on Fall transfer applicants, but it does not impact the information in your file. We are unable to do anything in our new system during the down time.

      49. Generally, do freshman seminar hours fully transfer? Most students have to take them at all colleges, so I imagine almost all transfers have a freshman seminar course on their transcript that either transferred as 1 hour or the full 3 credit hours. Do you remember from articulation, or if you wish not to guess, I understand. I am just so worried because since August, I have known my KSU 1101 class would transfer, I never assumed it could be worth less hours at UGA, thereby prohibiting me from applying for Spring since I have 30 hours. It is my dream to go to UGA and I have made great grades.

      58. When you review transfer applications, how do you decide if an applicant is to be accepted? Do you compare their GPAs with other transfer applicants or past transfer classes?

        ReplyDelete

        1. We look at the academic record of the student to see if they meet the consideration levels we have set, and also look to see if there are any other issues (conduct issues, academic problems, etc.). A large majority of times we would admit the student if they meet our academic consideration levels, but we cannot promise this, as there might be a situation where we need to limit the size of the transfer class.

        ReplyDelete
      62. I was previously denied admission as a Freshman. It is now a year later and I am now ready to Apply as a transfer student for Spring 2015. I can still login with the same credentials as before (My Email address has NOT changed). Am I supposed to create a new Account (a new Email address) or Should I be able to use previous credentials but this time for Transfer application?

        1. If you are talking about using spring work for fall transfer consideration, then no, we will not use this for admission review. The deadline was in April, so we have to hold all applicants to the same timeline standard for admission and consideration.

I am currently taking courses as a Transient student at a community college for the summer which I also reflected as in-progress credit hours in my application.

On the heading for signing up for fall orientation, it states "To log in and register for an Orientation session, you will need the ApplicantID and password you created when filling out your application. This is the same ID and password you use to log into your Status Check." As such, you would use the same information for signing in to myStatus as you would for orientation. As for FAFSA information, you would want to communicate with Financial Aid.

      80. Is HPS 1000 considered to be PE course, therefore it would only count as 1 credit hour instead of 3?

        ReplyDelete
      81. I have completed 30 credit hours. However, I am scared that KSU 1101 and HPS 1000 will not fully transfer. Will they?

        ReplyDelete
        Replies
        1. I believe that KSU 1101 comes in as a 3 hour UNIV elective course, and HPS comes in as partially a Health course, and partially a PE course, with all 3 hours coming in. But I cannot say with all authority, as we have to wait until we see a transcript and are able to review the file.

          Delete
        2. Okay, thank you! So, all 3 of my credit hours for HPS 1000 will be fully counted and I will be eligible to apply? I just don't want to have below 30 credits and not be able to apply.

          Delete
        3. I cannot say exactly about HPS 1000, but I believe that is the case (courses can change at KSU or other colleges, and as such how they come in, so we cannot guarantee how they will come in until we see them on a transcript). You are able to apply no matter what, but an admission offer is based on how we review the transfer work.

          Delete
        4. Okay so I shouldn't really worry about my credit hours if I have 30? I just do not want to be rejected because I have insufficient credit hours or something along the lines of that.

          Delete
        5. What I am saying is that you have to wait for us to review your application and the coursework and grades, and then we will be able to tell what transfers into UGA and what your academic standing is. I cannot guess on admission or on how specific courses come in.

          Delete
        6. Alright, thank you. Do you know if this HPS 1000 course will transfer to an equivalent course that is also worth 3 credit hours at UGA?

          Delete
        7. As I said before, I believe it comes in partially as a Health course and partially as a PE course (2 hours and 1 hour I believe), and all 3 hours will transfer in.

        1. Chemistry is a very tricky academic area when dealing with transfer work, as the Chemistry department has changed some of how they deal with transfer work over the past 2 years or so. I suggest you speak directly with the Chem department, as they are used to this, and they will have some steps for you to take to make sure you are ready for the next Chem classes at UGA. See the bulletin at http://bulletin.uga.edu/MajorsGeneral.aspx?MajorId=39 for more contact details.

      83. I will be applying, when the time comes, for Spring 2016 since I finish the Marines Sept 2015. I graduated high school May 2011. I know the application is due Sept 2015 and at that time I will only be out of high school for 4 years. But the semester I am applying for I will be out for 5 years. Basically I want to know am I a "non traditional admissions" so I would have to apply as a transfer OR am I a "first year admissions?" Thank you!

        1. It looks like you would have been out for 4.5 years, since you want to start in January of 2016, but graduated in May of 2011. As such, you would be either a first-year applicant or a transfer applicant, depending on if you have taken any transfer courses at another institution.

      84. I have applied as a transfer student for the Spring of 2015 (as a junior), and it says in the status check dashboard that it can take up to 10 business days from the submission of the application to get an answer about whether or not I am admitted. It has been 9 business days as of today. From the timeline information here, though, should I not expect an answer until August or September? Or should I expect the decision early next week, based on the ten business day timeline? I need to know because I may need to apply to other schools if I am not admitted, and I have to make their deadlines as well. Any help you can give me in this matter would be appreciated.
