Apply to Georgia College

Undergraduate Application for Admission

Your road to Georgia College starts here. Georgia College does not prefer one application over the other. All applications will be reviewed in the order in which they are complete, regardless of which application is used. Please submit ONLY ONE application and use ONLY that application all the way through to submission. Submitting more than one application will most certainly delay your admission decision. Access the application or the Common ApplicationNote: The Common Application is only available for first-time freshmen.

While most applications are submitted online, a downloadable PDF file is also available.

Our Early Action application deadline is November 1.

As you prepare your application please review the items below.

The $35 online application fee is payable at the time of application for both freshman and transfer applicants. The paper application fee is $40.

As part of our mission to provide students with a liberal arts education, Georgia College strives to create an atmosphere that instills in students exceptional qualities of mind and character including respect for human diversity and individuality. Given your own individual background, life experiences, and personal identity, how will you contribute to the overall diversity of the student body at GC?

Georgia College is dedicated to extending learning beyond the classroom to foster critical thinking skills and help students develop the tools necessary to not only consume knowledge, but also produce knowledge. Our faculty create a rigorous and challenging classroom experience, and prepare students to combine that experience with real-world applications. With this educational style in mind, please describe the most important goal you have established for yourself regarding your future undergraduate experience and explain how a Georgia College education fits into accomplishing this goal.
