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.

      2. 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.

      3. About how many people have been accepted so far and how many applications are being reviewed per day?

        ReplyDelete
        Replies
        1. My estimate is that about 70% of the Spring applicants have a decision, so a little over 1,100. We are averaging about 60-70 decisions a day, but the last ones we do will take a little longer due to their complexity, so that will slow down a little near the end.

      4. 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?

        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.

        Replies
        1. No, you would be on equal footing, but most likely you would be looking at different levels of classes, as most spring transfers will have at least 1.5 years of college or more.

          Delete
        2. I was just asking because I know freshman have a first-year live on requirement, so I thought any vacant rooms for Spring would go to them before transfers.

          Delete
        3. I am sorry, I mis-read your question and though you were asking about classes, not housing. Yes, freshman for Spring will be first in the housing options due to the live on requirement.

      8. I'm a transfer student that will need to take the math placement exam sometime before my orientation. Is this exam generally geared towards freshman, or relatively designed to just test your understanding, as opposed to picking your brain apart with very difficult questions? Is it just a basic placement test covering math in general, or pre-calculus specifically?

        1. I do not know, sorry. The math department is the key contact there.

        2. Can I take placement exam once I have committed? It tells me if I need a summer class, and taking it at orientation would be useless since orientation is in summer and I would've had to decide if I'm taking class or not. Also, does May session look bad? I am thinking instead of taking 1 summer class for 2 months, I will take it in May instead for 2 weeks. I am already accepted for Fall as transfer.

          Delete
        3. You can schedule a placement exam prior to the summer and orientation (see http://testing.uga.edu/students-customers/placement-exams), and if a student enrolls in a summer class, we are fine with whatever part of term they choose.

      9. Would a C in just one class over the summer look bad? If I were accepted with over a 3.7 GPA as a transfer for Fall, and I made a C in my only summer class, would you be understanding that this is just one class, and does not reflect a poor term or large drop in grades? I am worried that this would cause you to reconsider me or review me.

        ReplyDelete
        Replies
        1. Generally, one C in the situation you mentioned would not change any decision.

          Delete
        2. Would you be understanding that it just one class, and review it in relation to my entire college history? I'm not really worried about one C (It is May session) - What I'm worried about is you seeing "Summer GPA: 2.0" which is indicative of a poor term.

          Delete
        3. We would look at the C within the context of your entire work, and would not look at it as just Summer-C

      10. Is it better to apply for early admission or the very last date? It seems this year, UGA had a large number of early admission decisions & several UGA hopefuls applying on the last deadline were declined admission despite high SAT, ACT, GPA, AP classes, state & local leadership, etc. Disappointed in my University with two outstanding students being denied admission when others were admitted with much lower credentials. I know...I teach them. Please explain. Thank you!

        ReplyDelete
        Replies
        1. We treat all applicants the same, whether they apply on the day the app opens or on the last day it is open. The only issue we usually see is that people who apply on the deadline generally are less likely to have all required materials sent to us, as they wait until the last second and do not give counselors/teachers time to do their part. We had roughly the same number of EA admits as in years past, so there was no difference. The big difference is that we had a larger and stronger applicant pool as a whole. As for two students who were denied, we had a large number of students who were very strong that we were not able to admit due to the overall strength of the applicant pool and the limited size of the freshman class. As for "lower credentials", that would be in the eye of the beholder, as we look at a wide range of things, and unless you were looking at all the materials that we had in the files and looked at it in the way we look at it, you cannot really judge the process. For instance, a number of people put a great deal of emphasis on an overall/composite test score, while we have stated again and again that that is the least important of the academic areas, and that we focus on individual subscores. So as you can see, we view things differently that some people, and are very transparent at what we look at.

      12. My admissions notification letter stated that my high school evaluation form that was to be completed by a high school guidance counselor was not submitted. UGA admissions office sent an email requesting this information from my guidance counselor on 1/21/15 and 2/4/15. Apparently, my guidance counselor never sent the form. Certainly, I'm very upset that she failed to do this. This situation was not my responsibility to handle and was out of my control. Therefore, please explain to me the appeals process for this situation and/or steps necessary to resolve this in order for my application to be reviewed.

        1. There is no appeal to an incomplete file, as there was no decision made due to us not being able to move forward with a decision. I would suggest you talk with your counselor about why this was not done, but we cannot do anything. Remember, the deadline for supporting documents was 1/22, and your first request of the counselor form was 1/21. As such, you did not give your counselor much lead in time for this (1 day), and you have to own a part of the issue.

        1. If it is a biographical field, I would not worry about it, as there are at times fields that have no impact on a decision (a parent's birthplace for instance), but are there for data collection. As well, if it is in the non-required areas, it is not needed for admission or review.

      17. My SAT & GPA were higher than my High School friends who were admitted to UGA for early admission. Based on their credentials compared to my own, my guidance counselor was sure I would be admitted to UGA. It appears I made a mistake waiting to apply, but with my leadership positions (state and local level), I was advised to apply later. My understanding is I must have 30 hours to transfer to UGA. Does this mean I will have to take 30 hours this summer and fall to be considered for 2016? Thank you.

        ReplyDelete
        Replies
        1. First, we do not make different decisions based on when a student applies. As such, it may be that how you and your counselor look at things is different from how we do. For instance, a GPA on a HS transcript has it's own weighting, uses non core classes, etc. As well, test scores are looked at differently by us then by some other institutions. We look at individual subscores. I had a great case today where an ACT composite was higher for X student than for student Y, but the ACT E, M and E/W were much higher for student Y, which are the ACT subscores that we focus on. As for transferring into UGA, we will need 30 completed hours with grades by the deadline, so if you apply for Fall 2016, we need 30 hours with grades by 4/1.

      46. My updated transcript with Spring grades/classes is still not in DegreeWorks, and I have it showing as received 3 weeks ago. I am a transfer student. Should I be worried? My transfer orientation is June 12.

        1. (All 3 of my college semesters are in DegreeWorks, except for my 4th semester - Spring).

        2. Between transfers and freshmen with dual enrollment work, we will have about 2,000 files to update with spring work. As such, we need time to do this. It will be done by orientation.

      47. Hi there--
        Am I understanding correctly that final decisions moving students from waitlist to admit status have been made?
        Thank you--

        1. Yes, wait list decisions were made in early/mid May, and I posted about it here at http://ugaadmissions.blogspot.com/2015/05/2015-wait-list-decisions.html. In addition, we also sent out emails to students.

        Have all the transfer applicants for fall 2015 been processed?

        1. Unless we were waiting on Spring grades or conduct information, then yes, we are done. The only other exceptions are applicants for non Athens campuses.

      49. Hello, my transfer orientation is tomorrow, and my Spring grades are still not showing up in DegreeWorks. MyStatus shows my transcript received on May 13th, and it had all of my classes on it because grades for my school were due May 9. What should I do, re-send it? I need my classes to be there so I can register for classes that have pre-reqs.

        1. I suggest you send an email ASAP to admproc@uga.edu. Generally, we try to make sure that by the orientation date, we have reviewed the updated college transcripts for the attendees, but it might be that we missed this one. We can then see what we can do, as sending another one now would not have it in your file until sometime next week.

        2. I have just done that. I really hope they can expedite this for me or do something, I did everything I needed to.

      50. I just re-sent it. Is there a way I could scan or fax it in, or could I drop it off in-person today for it to be uploaded in my system ASAP, because I imagine electronic processing would take 2 days for you to even recieve it after my school sends it again? My school did not send Spring work, it is their fault.

        1. If you have an official sealed copy then you can drop it off at our office. We cannot accept a scan or fax, as it needs to be officially given to us.

          Delete
        2. I do not have a sealed copy. If you receive my transcript today or tomorrow morning electronically, is there any way at all that you can process my Spring grades and expedite this, so that I may register for Fall classes that have pre-reqs? Is there somewhere where I can pay to have this expedited?

        3. The transcript has been sent and is awaiting mark of delivery by UGA. Thank you, Christopher Reeve

        4. We have to receive it, match it with your file, and then review it, FYI. It does not instantly go into your file.

          Delete
        5. Is there any way this can be expedited for me, or a way where I can move to the front of the line? I am truly sorry my school did not send my spring grades, I had them send it after grades were finalized. I've emailed admproc@uga.edu also. I really need this done before I register tomorrow. I would've acted on this sooner but I asked about a week ago and was told grades/classes were still beig uploaded, so I figured my spring classes were not uploaded yet.

          Delete
        6. What we said was not incorrect, as we are still uploading grades. We are moving forward daily with college transcripts that come in, so I expect it will be input soon after it gets into your file. But we cannot expedite it getting into your file, as we have to allow it to come into our system.

        7. I was told by admproc that my spring grades were not on my transcript at all, but that there were 9 in-progress hours, which was summer classes I registered for but did not take. In your opinion, do yo think my advisor will be able to work with me to allow me to register for Fall tomorrow, if she sees a copy of the classes I took? My transcript now shows it has been sent and is awaiting delivery, hopefully the process is quick. I cannot believe this happened to me. I am worried classes I need will get filled up because of this issue. It has really stressed me out. I chose not to go for spring because I could not get classes I needed and was told I could more than likely for Fall.

        8. I cannot really guess about what will happen with your advisor, but it would be best to bring an updated transcript for the advisor to see (unofficial, not sealed, whatever). There will not be a huge wave of people signing up for classes between tomorrow afternoon and early next week, so do not panic.

      51. When my transcript shows as delivered or received in MyStatus, will it be in DegreeWorks as well? (College Transcript)

        1. DegreeWorks is only for UGA students, so no applicants will have access to this until they are admitted and pay a deposit.

      52. If I sent a transcript electronically and it was transmitted early today, and it is a simple updated transcript with spring grades (15 hrs, All A's) from a USG school with lots of transfers, do you think it would be in my file by possibly tomorrow afternoon or early next week?

      55. When you receive a college student's final transcript, spring or summer, does the student find out if their offer of acceptance still stands, or are they not notified if nothing in their application status changes? Thank You.

        1. I am guessing you are referring to Spring transfer admission correct? I suggest you work with that school first to see about their timeline, and if needed, submit a deposit to UGA due to your circumstances. After you have both decisions, make sure to let the one you do not attend know ASAP.

        2. Okay thanks!

      59. I am a spring 2016 transfer applicant. All my required documents have been received by you all. How long, on average, are decisions being sent out once all required items are received at this point in the application period?

        1. It is tough to say right now, as late July through mid-August is when our team does a great deal of work on transcript review for incoming/current UGA students with summer transient work, and inputting this data into our system. Some days we will review 25+ files, some days it is less than 10. Right now we have reviewed about 55% of the transfer applications for Spring (with about 30% being incomplete and not able to be reviewed), but as we get closer to the 8/15 deadline, applications will pick up and it will be a little more hectic here. Sorry that I cannot give you an estimate, but there are too many variables.

      60. I am a spring 2016 transfer applicant. I am a junior with a 2.9 GPA. I had a really bad first year, but every semester since I have had above a 3.5 and a couple of 4.0's. If you look at my last 2 years they are excellent but my first year was poor. Is this all taken into account or is it just my GPA that is looked at?

        1. Cancel your Spring application, and then apply for Fall when that application opens (and get us an updated transcript with fall work).

      62. Hi, I applied as a transfer for Spring 2016 in early June. The myStatus page states that you have all of my needed transcripts and the application fee. I was just wondering whether or not there was an issue with my application, or if you just haven't gotten to my application yet?
