General Admissions

Entrance Requirements and Recommendations

Requirements

The academic review of first-year applications centers on three criteria: the student's grade point average (GPA) in core academic courses, the rigor of a student's course selection, and his or her best combination of scores on the SAT I or ACT. Additionally, all applications are reviewed for conduct issues; recommendations; satisfactory completion of all courses and completion of the required College Preparatory courses.

GPA and rigor of curriculum weigh roughly three-to-two to standardized tests in predicting academic success at UGA. Effectively, this means that a student with a 4.0 GPA in a superior curriculum of Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) courses might be admitted with an SAT score at or below 1000. Yet, another student with a 3.0 GPA and an SAT score of 1400 might not be admitted, if the student opted for no more than a standard college prep curriculum with few if any Honors, AP or IB courses.

The following course of study is required as a minimum by the University System of Georgia for students graduating from high school who plan to enroll in a University System of Georgia institution (www.usg.uga.edu/student_affairs).
Carnegie Unit Requirements for College Preparatory Curriculum (CPC) Courses and Instructional Emphasis:
• English (4 units) " Literature (American, English, World) integrated with grammar, usage and advanced composition skills;
• Mathematics (4 units) " Mathematics I, II, III and a 4th unit of mathematics, or equivalent courses (OR) Algebra I and II, geometry, and a 4th unit of advanced math or equivalent courses (www.usg.edu/student_affairs);
• Science (4 units) " The 4 science unit should include two courses with a laboratory component. Georgia public high school students should have at least one unit of biology, one unit of physical science or physics, one unit of chemistry, earth systems, environmental science, or an advanced placement course, and a 4th science;
• Social Studies (3 units) " Must include one unit focusing on U.S. studies and one unit focusing on world studies;
• Foreign Language (2 units) or American Sign Language (2 units) or Computer Science (2 units) " The two units of the same foreign language must have an emphasis on speaking, listening, reading and writing. The 2 units of computer science must have a coding a programming emphasis (Please see list of approved courses - www.usg.edu/student_affairs).

Undergraduate

Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Early Action " Early Action (EA) has an application deadline of October 15. Primary consideration for Early Action focuses on three areas:
• grades through the end of the junior year
• the rigor of a student’s curriculum relative to the curriculum offered at his/her high school
• and results of either the SAT I or ACT with Writing

Early Action candidates may be offered admission, denied, or deferred to the Regular Decision process for further consideration. Applicants admitted under the Early Action plan are not bound to accept this offer of admission and have until May 1 to submit a non-refundable commitment deposit in order to secure a seat in the first-year class. Students who are deferred must complete Part II of the application and have a teacher recommendation submitted on their behalf by January 15 to be reconsidered with Regular Decision applicants. The Office of Admissions also recommends that students submit mid-senior year grades and any new SAT/ACT results that were not submitted previously.


Regular Decision - First-year applicants for summer or fall semester who apply Regular Decision (RD) must submit a completed application by January 15 of their senior year and will typically receive a decision in mid-March. For Regular Decision Applicants, the admissions office conducts an initial review of the file to see if a student meets Early Action admission credentials, and then moves forward with a holistic review of the applicant that balances the following primary considerations:
Grades through the end of the junior year
• the rigor of a student’s curriculum relative to the curriculum offered at his/her high school
• and results of either the SAT I or ACT with Writing

Secondary Consideration is given to the following factors in RD evaluations
• intellectual pursuits
• creative endeavors and intercultural experiences
• public service
• co-curricular actives
• community involvement
• leadership and family commitments
• and integrity and personal maturity

Regular Decision and deferred Early Action candidates will be offered admission, denied or offered a place on the Waiting List.


Spring Admission - First-year applicants for spring semester will be considered on a space-available basis only. Completed applications must be submitted by August 15; decisions will be released by December 1. Primary consideration for Spring Admission will be focused on demonstrated academic achievement: grades in core academic courses, rigor of curriculum and performance on the SAT I or ACT with Writing. Applicants admitted for spring semester are subject to the same commitment deposit requirements as admitted students for summer or fall.

The above criteria are minimum application requirements and do not guarantee acceptance to any major in the College of Engineering.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

At the University of Georgia, applicant files are classified as "international" if they meet ANY of the 6 criteria listed below. Supplemental application materials are needed for each of the following criteria, so review this web site carefully to see what is needed in your specific case.

1. You will require an F-1 visa to enter and study in the United States.
2. You are not a U.S. citizen and are currently in the United States on an F-1/F-2 (student) visa and attending a United States High School.
3. You are currently in the United States on some other class of visa. Please submit a copy of the visa from your passport as well as your passport picture page with your supporting application information.
4. If you are a Permanent Legal Resident of the United States, please submit a copy of the front and back of your card for inspection.
5. If you are in the process of obtaining permanent legal residency, please submit all documentation related to this process. This would include, but not limited to, an Employment Authorization Document, the form I-485, or your I-94 departure record.
6. If you hold refugee or asylum status, please submit all documentation related to this status.
For international students who have studied or are studying at a university or institution in a country outside of the United States, the University of Georgia will evaluate your credentials based on a wide range of factors. Admission to UGA might depend on the country in which you are studying, the system of education, the credentials of the university or institution and the exams offered by the country or university. If you have completed post-secondary coursework at a non-U.S. institution, we must receive official transcripts from all institutions attended and an official outsourced credit evaluation. We will use the credit evaluation to help us determine how many credits you have earned as well as how your courses transfer into the U.S. educational system. More information can be found on the Office of Admissions homepage (https://www.admissions.uga.edu/prospective-students/international/first-year-international).

Residency Requirements

Candidates for first baccalaureate degrees who matriculate at UGA fall 2003 and thereafter must earn at least 45 of the last 60 semester credit hours in residence. In addition, 15 of the semester credit hours required for a student’s major must be earned in residence. (Some majors may require more than the minimum of 15 semester credit hours.)

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Transfer consideration requirements are subject to change for each semester as the University reviews space availability for that term. Different GPA baselines are set depending on the hours that transfer into the University of Georgia, with a change in class standing every 30 semester hours. Additionally, some colleges and departments have limits on the number of students in their programs, so an applicant’s intended major might be a factor in the admission decision.

When reviewing a file, the best indication of academic success at UGA is a student’s calculated transfer GPA along with the number of classes completed. In calculating your GPA, we use all academic grades you have earned in transferable courses (including D's, F's and WF's) from every college you have attended. If a course is repeated, we will use both grades. As well, we only review transfer work with specific course titles, course numbers and credit hours.
Transfer admission decisions are made on a space-as-available basis. Thus, there are neither GPA nor completed credit hour levels that guarantee admission. To be eligible for transfer admission consideration, students must meet one of the following sets of criteria established below and submit the required materials in accordance with appropriate deadlines.

You are eligible for transfer admission consideration to the undergraduate program on UGA's Athens campus if you have:
• 30-59 completed hours of transferable credit by the application deadline,
• graduated from high school at least 12 months prior to the term of intended enrollment,
• completed at least one year of college by the term of intended enrollment, and
• a 3.20 or higher calculated transfer GPA.

You are eligible for transfer admission consideration to the undergraduate programs on UGA's Athens, Tifton, Griffin, or Online campuses if you have:
• 60 or more completed hours of transferable credit by the application deadline,
• graduated from high school at least 12 months prior to the term of intended enrollment,
• completed at least one year of college by the term of intended enrollment, and
• a 2.80 or higher calculated transfer GPA.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.
