The UGA First-Year application is now open! As is our history, we normally open our First-Year application in mid-August, and it is generally on a Monday to make sure we are available if any minor issues arise. Please remember that there are a few changes to this year’s application:
- UGA is only accepting online applications for admission. Any print-outs of the application are for your records or to view the application questions, but are not to be mailed in.
- The Activities/Athletics/Employment (Extra-Curricular Areas) section has been shifted to Part I of the application. We will not be evaluating Early Action applications any differently than in the past, but having this information in part I will help with scholarship review, completion of part II for deferred students, etc.
- There is a new section on the application called Self-Reported Grades, and this is required for all applicants. You will need to have a copy of your high school transcript for this section, and you will enter in the academic grades you received from 9th through 12th grade (or 11th grade if applying before you have completed the first term of your 12th grade). You will only include actual course grades (do not enter any final/overall grades that are averages of your year), and this section will list the courses that should be included in the grade chart. Here is an FAQ for the self-reported grades chart.
Please remember, you do not have to rush to complete the application, but try to make sure you do not wait until 11 p.m. on the deadline date to submit it either!
