Fall Semester Timeline

Fall semester decisions for first-time freshmen begin in December and continue until enrollment goals have been met. It is recommended that students apply as early as possible to be considered for admission, university housing, and scholarship funding/need-based financial aid.

Early Action – November 1

  • Early Action applies to Fall Semester freshmen only.
  • Early Action is non-binding and provides students with an early decision without obligation to enroll.
  • Prospective freshmen participating in Early Action must submit their completed application package by November 1.
  • Notification of admission decision will be mailed in December.

Regular Admission – January 1 through April 1
  • Prospective freshmen will submit their completed application package by April 1.

Student confirmation deposit and required housing contract – May 1
  • All admitted first-time freshmen wishing to reserve a seat in the freshman class must submit the following:
  • a $200 non-refundable enrollment confirmation deposit
  • a $235 housing application fee & security deposit ($200 of which is refundable up to May 1).
  • Students are encouraged to submit their deposits as soon as they are certain of Georgia College as their college choice, especially since room assignments and roommate preferences are based on date priority.
