Freshmen

All applicants who graduate from high school less than 12 months prior to the start of their first term at Georgia College or who have earned less than 30 semester hours (45 quarter hours) of transferable college credit coursework prior to matriculation will be classified as freshmen applicants.  Freshmen applicants are also subject to the university’s first year on-campus residency requirement.

The successful freshman applicant will demonstrate his or her potential for success by completing a rigorous College Preparatory Curriculum with a competitive grade point average, show strong SAT or ACT score results and provide a well developed personal essay. The middle 50% of admitted students for Fall 2013 had SAT total scores ranging from 1100 to 1240 (CR + M subscores only), 23 to 27 ACT Composite scores and high school grade point averages ranging from 3.26 to 3.75 (calculated on academic courses only). These numbers are provided only as guidelines.  Students whose test scores/subscores may subject them to screening for learning support/remedial placement, will not be considered for admission.

Admissions decisions are based on the total student portfolio and demonstrated potential for contribution to the university and probability for success in the unique environment of the GC community. In the application review process, GC strives to discover students who will bring academic and creative achievements, elements of diversity, a proven commitment to community service and who have the potential to make significant contributions to society. GC seeks inquisitive freshmen who exhibit the desire to develop an analytical mind; a sense of civic and global responsibility; sound ethical principles; respect for human diversity and individuality; effective writing, speaking and qualitative skills; and a healthy lifestyle.
