Which Date Is Right For You?

Early Action
Students who wish to be considered for the President’s Scholarship Program and/or Honors Program must apply by the Early Action deadline. The October 15th early application date is non-binding, and the application and evaluation is the same as for Regular Decision.
Students who have studied outside the United States during high school should apply no later than December 15th but may apply by October 15th, if they so choose.
Regular Decision
January 10 is the last date to apply for freshman admission for the following summer/fall term. The application and evaluation is the same as for Early Action.
Application Fees
Freshman applicants pay a non-refundable application fee of $75 (international applicants: $85). Students who pay an application fee but do not submit an application will not have their fee refunded.

Application Fee Waiver
Freshmen applicants wishing to use an application fee waiver may do so when completing The Common Application. When asked on the application if you plan to use a fee waiver, select yes, and your counselor will verify this information when completing the school report (there is nothing you as a student will need to submit to Georgia Tech).
