Georgia College Admission Status Information

The bar highlighted in green indicates your current admissions status.  The list below offers an explanation for the different status types:  

Please be advised that separate and sometimes higher requirements exist for admission into a particular college, school, or major. Admission requirements are described in the Georgia College Catalogs, which are available on the internet at http://catalog.gcsu.edu

Admit -- Indicates that the Georgia College Office of Admissions has accepted you for the term indicated in the Term of Entry box.  A package including important forms and other information will be mailed to the address indicated in the Name/Address section of the previous page. Final admission will be granted after receipt of final transcripts. NOTE: If you applied for Fall, but were offered Spring Semester Admission  please click here. You can also learn more at www.gcsu.edu/spring

Admit-Articulation Pending -- This acceptance is pending the entry of all college coursework. Once Georgia College has entered all of your college coursework, an admissions decision of "final" or "conditional" will be issued. An admissions decision of "final" indicates that you meet all of the minimum requirements for admissions and you have no courses in progress at your previous institution. An admissions decision of "conditional" indicates that you meet the minimum requirements for admission; however, you will need to submit your FINAL transcripts. Note: An Admit-Articulation Pending decision can be rescinded if your cumulative GPA falls below the required minimum.

Admit Conditional -- A student has been accepted for the term indicated in the Term of Entry box based on credentials presented to date, but is still currently enrolled in high school or at another college. A package including important forms and other information will be mailed to the address indicated in the Name/Address section of the previous page. Once the student's FINAL transcript has been received showing continued eligibility for admission, the student's acceptance is then finalized. For a new freshman, the final transcript must include the date of graduation and indicate completion of the College Preparatory Curriculum with a minimum of 16 academic units. For a transfer student, the final college transcript must indicate a satisfactory minimum GPA (some majors require a higher GPAs for program admission) based on all college coursework attempted. Note: Transcripts are only accepted as official when mailed directly to Georgia College from the issuing institution. Fax and student provided copies are not used for admission purposes. 

Admit Final -- Indicates that the Georgia College Office of Admissions has fully admitted you for the term indicated in the Term of Entry box.  A package including important forms and other information will be mailed to the address indicated in the Name/Address section of the previous page.

Admit Transient -- Indicates that the Georgia College Office of Admissions has admitted you as a transient student for the term indicated in the Term of Entry box.  A transient student is admitted for one term only.  If you choose to continue your education with Georgia College after your term enrolled as a transient, you must notify the Georgia College Office of Admissions so that your application can be updated for readmission as a transfer student and the proper materials can be requested.  A package including important forms and other information will be mailed to the address indicated in the Name/Address section of the previous page.

Complete and Ready for Review -- Indicates that the Georgia College Office of Admissions has received all documents needed to make an admissions decision on your file.  At this time your application is in line for review.  All complete files are reviewed in the order in which they became complete.  Please check back later to see if an admissions decision has been made on your file.

Denied -- The university is unable to extend an offer of admission to the applicant at this time. Applicants may submit improved credentials (such as updated transcripts or additional test scores) for reconsideration if spaces remain the class. Freshman applicants are encouraged to take advantage of a transfer option for admission to Georgia College. Students can be considered for transfer admission after earning a minimum of 30 transferable semester credit hours at another accredited institution with an appropriate transfer GPA for the student's desired major.

Letter mailed- means the application has been deferred to our regular admission process which will begin in January and continue until April 1 or until the freshman class is full. Applications are deferred to the regular process to give the Admissions Committee more time to thoroughly evaluate the student's credentials. Decisions will be based on the strength of the academic curriculum, grade point average, SAT or ACT test scores and essay, as compared to the rest of the applicant pool. During this time, students are encouraged to submit first semester grades from their high school, any new SAT or ACT test score results and any other items they feel will be helpful in the review of their application (resume of activities, letters of recommendation, etc.).

Pending Decision --At this stage, all items necessary to comprise a complete file have been received and preliminary data has been entered into the tracking system. “Pending Decision” indicates that a complete file has been forwarded to the Admissions Committee for review.  Each file is individually evaluated by a member or members of the Admissions Committee.  A decision will be forthcoming after this holistic evaluation is finalized.

Possible Summer Candidate -- Although we are unable to extend an admission offer for Fall semester, applicants with a 'Possible Summer Candidate' decision are being offered the opportunity to apply for Georgia College's Bridge Scholars Program.  The Bridge Scholars Program is a year-long learning community which begins with an intensive four-week summer session.  The summer program gives students the opportunity to begin their enrollment at Georgia College in a smaller 'cohort' environment and will provide support and resources to make sure these freshmen are successful in their transition to college, while earning 7 academic credits.  The Bridge Scholars Program will be limited to 125 students, and an interview will be required as a part of the application process. The student will receive contact information in the mail in order to request more details.

Recommended for further review -- The Admissions Committee is recommending your application for further consideration in our rolling admission process. This is a great opportunity to add new or additional information to your file, which will help us render a final decision on your admissions status. Additional information can include an updated transcript, reflecting Fall grades; new SAT and/or ACT scores; resume and letters of recommendation. Final decisions for these applications will be posted by the end of January.

Wait List -- The wait list is comprised of applicants who are qualified for admission, but who we are currently unable to admit due to the competitive nature of our applicant pool, combined with the limited number of spaces in the freshman class. Georgia College will use the wait list in the event that fewer students accept our initial offer than we project. Wait-listed students who remain active on the wait list will be notified after May 1st if a space becomes available in the freshman class.
