Application Procedures

Persons seeking admission to the University of Georgia Graduate School must hold a baccalaureate degree from an institution accredited by the appropriate regional accrediting association or its international equivalent prior to the expected semester of matriculation. Applicants should be ranked in the upper half of their undergraduate class. Applicants are responsible for submitting application materials required for admission. These items include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Application for admission
  • Application-processing fee
  • Transcripts
  • Entrance test scores
  • Letters of recommendation
  • Certification of finances forms (international applicants)
  • Any supplemental material required by the department

Application materials are reviewed by the Graduate School and the academic department. The Graduate School reviews the department’s recommendation and makes the final determination on acceptance. Applicants must be admitted to the Graduate School before they are eligible to register. Official acceptance is conveyed to the applicant in a formal letter issued by the Office of Graduate Admissions. Admission is granted for a specific semester and is validated by registration for that semester.
