About the application fee
The application-processing fee is collected to help offset the cost of processing application materials. As of July 1, 2009, the fee to apply for graduate programs at the University of Georgia is:
- Domestic applicants = $75 for the first application; $25 for each additional application
- International applicants = $100 for the first application; $25 for each additional application
- Former UGA graduate students returning within four terms of their last registration will pay the reduced rate of $25 for the application fee.
An application must be accompanied by the application-processing fee. The fee is non-refundable and cannot be deferred or credited toward tuition. It must be paid online at the time the application is submitted using a credit card or electronic check, drawn on a U.S. bank account. Applications submitted without the fee will not be processed.
Application Fee Waivers
Participation in certain programs may qualify an applicant for a waiver of the application fee. A list of qualifying programs are found below. Please note that in order to select a fee waiver option you must have the required documentation for the waiver from one of the following programs at the time that you request the waiver. To obtain the application fee waiver, please upload the fee waiver supporting documentation as part of your application. Admissions for the Terry College of Business MBA program are processed separately. For more information, please visit the program website.
NOTE: Applicants who select a fee waiver for which they are not eligible will have their application cancelled. The fee waiver is a one-time request and only applicable for one admissions cycle.
After you have completed your application and paid (or received a waiver of) the fee, you may apply for up to two additional programs at the reduced rates (see above) using the same login account.
