This also includes colleges attended as a PSO or Dual/Joint Enrollment student while still in high school, through study abroad work, or through work completed as a summer transient student or any other program. 

    Transcripts submitted to UGA after the deadline will not be used in making admission decisions, and any coursework not complete at the time of the respective postmark deadline will not be considered. This means that in-progress classes will not be applied to transfer credit evaluation in admission consideration: work must be complete in advance of the deadline and appear as a final credit and grade on the most recent transcript available. Please be certain to review the Transfer Requirements pages before submitting a complete application.
