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?

        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? I know you take in to consideration a lot of factors but right now i have a 3.73 GPA with over 72 credits. would you say my chances are good?

        1. The deadline is just for admission consideration, and we would transfer later courses that are completed. As for admissions chances, I cannot guess about a decision, but you have put yourself in a good place.

      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?

        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.

      40. 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?

      42. 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

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!

      51. I applied for the Fall 2016 semester. I received an email saying that they could not consider my application because it was missing materials and was incomplete. When I looked at my status page, it said that all of my transcripts were received except the one for my current term.

        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).

      52. The website says transfer decisions should be made the beginning of May. Just wondering how many applications are left? I applied about a week after the transfer application opened and still haven't heard anything. Wondering if I should call Admissions to check on my application, as both college transcripts were received in mid-February. Thanks.

        1. Generally, most fall transfer students hear by early to mid May. This year, though, we have had more challenging and complex transfer files, so things are taking a little longer.

      55. I am applying as a transfer student. I want to apply for the Spring 2017 with the intentions to attend then but may be unable to start attending until Fall 2017. If I get accepted for the Spring and I decide not to go, will I still be able to attend in the Fall as long as my grades are still acceptable? Or will I have to apply all over again?

        1. If a student is admitted, they are admitted to start at UGA for that specific term, and not for any future start terms (with the exception being summer and fall of the same year which are viewed as the same starting point). If you do not attend for the term for which you have been admitted, you would need to apply again.

      56. Hello, I misread a question on the 2017 spring transfer application stating "Explain your choice of major". I was wondering whether I could go back and change my answer. Also, will my answer to this question have an effect on my admission decision. Thanks.

      57. Part of the requirements listed for non-traditional students is to be a resident of Athens-Clarke County. Just to clarify- even if you live in a neighboring county, you cannot apply as a non-traditional student?

        ReplyDelete
        Replies
        1. It should actually say the Athens-Clarke County area, so it takes into account the counties immediately surrounding Clarke C.

          Delete
        2. I see surrounding counties listed now, must have overlooked that before. Thank you. Non traditional isn't an option listed on the application. Is the process different?

          Delete
        3. I had that part added. When you apply, you will be applying as a freshman non-traditional student if you have never taken any college classes, or a transfer non-traditional student if you have taken some college classes, but below 30 transferable hours. And this is assuming you meet the other requirements. The non-traditional indicator is a part of these two applications.

      59. Hey,
        I just submitted an application for transfer online special education program last week for fall 2016. The online business education program say July 15 is the deadline is that the same for Special Education online? I have completed 75 credit hours and all of my core classes are finished.

        1. I am assuming you are applying as a freshman, but I do not know what term you are applying for to UGA. If you are applying for spring 2017, you need to send us an ACT with a Writing score. For summer/fall 2017 and beyond, we will not require a writing/essay score for the ACT or SAT due to the change in the new SAT, so we would not need or use an ACT Writing score.

        1. The online Special Ed and online BBA programs have slightly different timelines due to the nature of the review, and the later deadlines. The admission offer that counts is the acceptance letter from Undergraduate Admissions, as this is the one that changes the student system, posts transfer credit, etc. We are reviewing our remaining non-Athens campus files now, so you should hear something soon.

        1. Either is fine, and we should not have a problem matching this up. GPC is actually a part of GA State now, so we might change it on your file after the transcript comes in.

        1. Sorry I didn't realize people have already asked the same question... but I have another question. How many students usually apply for spring transfer and do you guys accept fewer students during spring compare to summer/fall?

          Delete
        2. I expect that about 1,600 transfers will apply for Spring, and we generally admit the same % as any other term, but it just depends on the applicant pool.

        3. In my college, Statistic is considered as a 3 credit class but in UGA it's a 4 credit class. How will you guys look at the class like that? as 3 credit class? or 4 credit class?

        4. It depends on the situation, as it may be that we bring it in as an equivalent, or it may be we bring it in as a generic Statistic class. I really cannot say, as it depends on our review.

        5. One last questions, it says I am a non-resident for tuition purpose but I am a green card holder. I have already turned in the picture of my green card. Will I be treated as in state student when you guys look at my application?

        6. UGA does not differentiate between in-state and out of state applicants in the review process, so there is no impact with your green card not being reviewed yet. Just be patient while we review your green card for residency purposes and your file for admission.

        1. My rough guess is by late August, as we have a much smaller number of Spring freshman as compared to Spring transfers. Make sure we have all required documents though, as we need to have it all in by now.

        1. Transfer decisions are done daily, and it is tough to predict a decision timeline due to the complexities of each transfer file. We are finally done with the transcript updates for current and enrolling students with summer work, so we have been focused heavily on spring transfers now. I am guessing that a majority of spring transfers will hear a decision by mid-September, and we are averaging about 50 decisions a day right now (with about 600 more decisions to make).

      70. So I was looking at the transfer equivalency chart and found that my 2 hour P.E class transfers as one PEDB and one HPRB credit.

      71. I didn't get into UGA last fall, and I am now at University of North Georgia on the Dahlonega campus. I have 9 hours of AP credit, 3 hours of summer class credit, and 12 hours of credit from my first semester. I have 24 hours, and I plan on taking 15 hours next semester. However, my second semester classes will have grades in on May 8th, and the deadline for Fall 2017 transfer is in March. Is there any way that I could earn more credit hours in time, or could I submit my application with my transcript from UNG pending?

        1. No, we would need to have 30 hours complete by the deadline, and the work would need to be on a transcript, so we could not accept a late transcript. I have no idea how you would earn more credit hours by 4/1, sorry. It may be that you will need to look at applying for Spring 2018.

      72. I applied to UGA as a transfer student for Spring 2017 on May 24, 2016. I attended Young Harris College my freshman year as well as Georgia Military College and Middle Georgia State University as a dual enrollment student in high school. Many of my friends have heard about their acceptance already and they applied after I did. I have no criminal or conduct issues that would interfere with the decision making. I am just concerned because I figured I would have heard by now since I applied so early. Please let me know if there is anything I can do. Thank you very much!

        1. Please remember that the timelines for transfer decisions are not based when a student applies, but when the file is complete, and that there are always some exceptions when a file is complex, such as having a large number of transfer colleges. I expect that you will hear a decision very soon, and my guess would be in the next 5 or so business days.
