We are continuing to focus as much time as possible to review the 2015
Fall transfer applications.  At this time, we have made roughly 750 decisions of the 2550 applications we
received so far this year (I project about 2,700 applicants total after the 4/1 deadline).  Based on last weeks numbers, we are averaging about
60-70 decisions being made per day. As
such, I expect for a large volume of decisions to go out in the next four
weeks. At some point in time, though, this will slow down a little bit
due when we get deeper into the tougher transfer applications.

remember we cannot tell you when you will have a decision as this
depends on many factors. Applications are generally processed in the
order in which the file was completed, but this is not always the case,
as some files are more challenging, are from colleges where we are
having to build a catalog in the new system, or are just complex. We also have two new staff members who can handle the more basic transfer files, so they might review some later files that can be done easily but might be out of “completion order”. As
well, I am not able to look at each individual file to see why someone
did nor did not receive a decision based on X date.

applications completed by the start of February or earlier have
been reviewed with some exceptions.  If you are transferring
from an out-of-state college or a
college we have not had many students apply from, your application may
take a bit longer to review and thus the timeline would not be correct
for your situation. Transfer decisions are updated daily on the
status check, and the myStatus page is updated at about 5 am every

If you have been admitted and want to see how
your courses transferred, you can use the transfer equivalency site off
the admissions website. If you have submitted a deposit (fall transfer
and beyond requirement), you can log on to DegreeWorks to see how your courses apply towards the degree/major you have selected.  As well, go to the Next Steps brochure to learn about what you will need to do next to enroll at UGA (this is also sent in the acceptance packet).

I hope this helps, and I will try to keep everyone updated.
