Graduate Admission to the University of Georgia is a collaborative process involving the Graduate School and the graduate faculty of the University. Each department has a designated graduate coordinator who serves as a liaison between the department and the Graduate School and who provides detailed information about program entry requirements, resources and special opportunities. Persons holding a baccalaureate degree, or a foreign equivalent, from a regionally accredited institution are eligible to apply for admission to the Graduate School. Regional accreditation is obtained from the following organizations:

  • Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSA)
  • Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU)
  • North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA)
  • New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Commission on Institutions of Higher Education (NEASC-CIHE)
  • Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS)
  • Western Association of Schools and Colleges, Accrediting Commission for Senior Colleges and Universities (WASC-ACSCU)

Application for admission to the Graduate School may be filed in an electronic on-line application. All applicants must provide an active e-mail address for contact regarding application processing. Applicants should review the following information before proceeding with the Application Form. Academic departments may set individual requirements and request additional materials. Applicants should consult the departmental contact person early in the application process to determine additional materials that must be submitted and to determine departmental filing deadlines for applications (if earlier than the Graduate School deadlines).
