Admissions Standards and Programs


The revised admission policy approved by the Board of Regents in 1996 will be phased in beginning Summer 2001.

Regular admission to programs leading to the baccalaureate degree requires. . .

FI = 500 x (HSGPA) + SAT I Verbal + SAT I Math or
FI = 500 x HSGPA + (ACT Composite x 42) + 88

Satisfaction of these minima does not guarantee admission to any University System institution since institutions may establish both higher and additional admissions requirements.

The University System of Georgia recognizes the need to provide academically talented high school students with opportunities for acceleration of their formal academic programs. This recognition has led to the development of two organized programs: 1) a joint enrollment program in which the student, while continuing his/her enrollment in high school as a junior or senior, enrolls in courses for college credit; and 2) an early admission program in which the student enrolls as a full-time college student following completion of the junior year in high school. Minimum admissions requirements are 1) a minimum combined SAT score of 970 or equivalent ACT scores, 2) a minimum cumulative high school grade point average of 3.0 or a numerical average of 80 or higher in academic subjects, 3) exemption of all Learning Support requirements for early admission, 4) written recommendation from the high school principal or counselor, and 5) written consent of parent or guardian (if the student is a minor). In Fall 2000 2,539 students were enrolled through the joint enrollment program, an increase of 1 percent since 1999.


Pursuant to a Georgia constitutional amendment passed in 1976, Georgia residents, 62 years of age or older, may enroll as a regular or auditing student in degree credit work on a "space available" basis without payment of fees, except for supplies, laboratory or shop fees. Students must meet all system and institution undergraduate or graduate school admission requirements and follow the same program as other degree-seeking students. The program does not apply to Dental, Medical, Veterinary, or Law Schools. In Fall 2000, 309 persons were enrolled through the program.
