Regular Decision January 4 February 1 Mid-March

All deadlines are 11:59 p.m. in your time zone (for example, a student who lives in Georgia must submit their application by Oct. 15 at 11:59 p.m. EDT).

*Documents (transcripts, letters of recommendation, etc.) must be sent by the deadline listed above. 

Early Action

Students who wish to be considered for academic scholarships, such as the Stamps President's Scholars Program, Scheller Dean's Scholarship and others, must apply by October 15 or November 2 (depending on Georgia status). No separate scholarship application is required.

The Early Action application date is non-binding, and the application and evaluation is the same as for Regular Decision.

Beginning for the 2021 application cycle, Early Action will be divided into two rounds. This change allows us to focus on Georgia students earlier in the process and is more in line with school start dates in our state versus other parts of the country.

Early Action 1

The October 15 application deadline is reserved for Georgia students, defined by those who attend a Georgia high school or Georgia residents living outside the state. 

Early Action 2

The November 2 application deadline is reserved for non-Georgia students who wish to be evaluated in an early action round, defined by those who attend a high school outside Georgia (including international) and are not Georgia residents.

Regular Decision

January 4 is the last date to apply for first-year admission for the following summer/fall term. The application and evaluation is the same as for Early Action.

Application Fee

The 2021 non-refundable first-year application fee is $75 (international applicants: $85). Students who pay an application fee but do not submit an application will not have their fee refunded.

Fee Waivers

Students qualifying for a need-based fee waiver will indicate this on their application.
