Welcome to the University of Georgia Undergraduate Admissions Veteran’s Information page. This page serves as an information hub for students who have served in the military and are seeking to complete a Bachelor’s degree. Thank you for your service to our country!

The college application process may seem a little overwhelming, especially if it has been several years since you have been in the classroom. Based on your previous educational experience, you will need to apply using one of the following application processes.

Applicants must apply using the transfer application. More information about the transfer application process can be found on our Transfer Admission page.


2. Nontraditional Admission


Nontraditional admission is for Athens-Area students that have been out of high school for five or more years. Applicants must apply using the Nontraditional application. More information about the nontraditional application and admissions criteria can be found on our Nontraditional Admission page.

Admission to the University of Georgia is competitive and demonstrated academic performance is the primary factor we must consider when evaluating our applicants. We also understand that not all students take the traditional path to college. Please feel free to call our office at (706) 542-2112 or email us at veterans@uga.edu if you have any questions.
