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. Are decisions released daily? Some people need to hurry and make decisions about future plans and it would be nice if we could lay out all the options. However, we cannot do that until we know where we have been accepted.

        1. No, you are a transfer, not a first year applicant, so you will not hear a decision during the final freshman decision release. I suggest reviewing my most recent post about this, as I also wrote about transfers.

        1. One, I do not guess about decisions. Two, by the UW to W GPA, this does not look like how we would recalculate a GPA, and we go by our GPA calculated on core grades, not the one on the transcript. Third, there is not ACT score of 228 that I know of.

        1. An ACT of 28 is fine (but not 228), but we look at much more than this. We look at the individual subscores of the test, and we focus much more on grades and rigor in our academic part of the review (add in looking at activities/sports/work, essays, recommendations, growth, etc.).

        Replies
        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.

      20. 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.

      22. 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.)

      27. 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.

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.

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.

        1. There are a number of ways that an international transfer can satisfy the English proficiency requirement, and the SAT is one of them. See https://www.admissions.uga.edu/prospective-students/international/transfer-international for more details.

      47. I am a Freshman applicant for Spring 2017 semester, I graduated High School early. I have already applied and everything, but it only says the transfer notification period for Spring semester. Do you know what range it will be for notification? What month will I know by?

        Thank you so much! :)

        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.

      48. Will we be notified when the decision will come out for Spring 2017 transfer students, or will we have to check our myStatus daily?

        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).

      49. 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. I was wondering since you only accept one physical education class but do not use the grade, if the other one credit hour HPRB class would be calculated into my transfer GPA?

        ReplyDelete

        1. Yes, we would generally use the 1 hour of HPRB grade in the GPA calculation.

      50. 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?

        ReplyDelete
        Replies
        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.

      51. 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.

      53. I am planning to apply to transfer. For my school, in the area one of the classes is you take either Applied Calculus, Calculus, or the other statistics. I want to know if I can take Applied Calculus to finish that area even though it isn't offered at UGA. I am in a GA University System, but my adviser and I are trying to figure out if I have to take Calculus or if I can do just my school's area. Thank you.

        1. This gets a little complicated, as it has to do with the specific major and the major requirements. As such, admissions can't really answer this, and you should reach out to the academic department of your major. While the core area might be taken care of with applied calculus, your major might require calculus towards its degree plan.

      54. Hello everyone! I was accepted as a transfer to UGA for spring 2017. I have a question regarding the deposit fee. If I pay the $100 deposit fee, am I required to attend UGA? I ask this because I am still waiting to hear back from a few other colleges and I don't necessarily want to commit to one school before I've gotten all my decisions back. Thanks!

        Replies
        1. A deposit means that you are saying yes to the offer of admission. If something then changes (medical issue, late admission offer from another college), we will understand if you need to change your plans, but please let us know ASAP about this change.

        1. At this point, only the freshman application is open, and if you select summer term and are admitted, you can then enroll for the summer. The transfer application will open up in late January and will have summer as an option as well.

        1. Or is this not possible? Because I would like to be decided on from a holistic approach besides my academics. Is there a way to do this?

          Delete
        2. All freshman applications are reviewed for our February round of admission offers, and this is based on the same academic review of our EA decisions. The small group of February decisions are only offers of admission, and so students not admitted in February would then fall into the final decision timeline that occurs in mid-late March.

        3. ahh Alright! Thank you for the clarification. I hope to be admitted! Fell in love with UGA !

      58. Under the category of application status it says: awaiting decision. Does this mean I have been admitted or does this mean that the University is still deciding?

        Replies
        1. This does not mean that you have been admitted. If you were admitted (or denied), it would show a status of Decided, and the status update would then allow you to see a decision. Awaiting decision means that the file is complete and we have not yet made a decision yet.

      59. Hello. I was deferred in Early Action and was submitting my application tonight. It says that my Part II Application was received, Counselor Report was received, Test Scores were received, and Transcript was received and I have two community/employer recommendations already submitted and it says "optional" next to Teacher Recommendation. And on "Application Status" it says "Awaiting Materials". I am just curious as to what materials it is referring to and what I have left to submit. I am incredibly confused and I would like to get this application done as soon as possible! Thanks in advance!

        1. Admissions does not deal with immunization records (that is the health center), so do not send in these until you are admitted. As for transcripts, I suggest sending these only after you have started an application.

      69. I am looking to apply for the next Summer semester as a transfer. I previously attended Auburn University, where we do not use plus or minus grades. How will my grades be calculated?

        1. We would translate your +/- grades to ours (we don't have an A+, so that would be an A), and we do not have any forgiveness grades. Other than that, you would just need to wait and see.

          Delete
        2. What are forgiveness grades?

          Delete
        3. My first statement would be that if you do not know what they are, then it will not impact you. But my best way of describing things is that some colleges will forgive a low grade in X class (Bio 1101) if you repeat the class with a higher grade.

          Delete
        4. Okay, that makes sense. So, if, for instance, I made an 88 in a class, which would be represented on my transcripts as "B" would it just be considered as a B on your scale?

          Delete
        5. I don't know. On a college transcript, we almost never see an 88, but instead a letter grade. We then take that letter grade and use it.
