The deadline for Spring is one day away (Spetember 1), so I thought all of the transfer applicants would like an update on the progress of our review. Please remember, we are evaluating transfer files daily, but it takes a while to review each transfer file, so please be patient with us as we go through this process.

As of today, we have 1300 Spring transfer applications, and we expect a few hundred more to come in over the next few days. Currently, we have made decisions on just under 500 of these files, and we are averaging about 30-40 decisions a day. Of the remaining 800 files still to review (and this will grow over the next few days as the deadline hits), we have transcripts from about 500 of the applicants. Generally, we will evaluate files based upon who completed their file earliest, so someone who submitted all of their materials (application, application fee, transcripts) on August 12 will generally hear a decision before someone who completed their file on August 13, who will hear before an August 14 completion, etc. There are some exceptions, but this is the general course that our office takes.

Please do not ask when you will hear a decision, as I cannot guess as to a date. As well, monitor your myStatus page to make sure everything is in, and if a transcript is under a different last name (if was under a maiden name, you changed your name after adoption, etc.), email admproc@uga.edu and let us know of the different names so we can track things down. Then just be patient as we review all of the transfer files.

I hope this helps, and Go Dawgs!
