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.
The Early Action application deadline for Fall 2018 is November 1. The Rolling Application Deadline is April 1, 2018.
As you prepare your application please review the items below.
Other recommended items include a letter of recommendation and resume of co-curricular activities. Letters of recommendation and resumes may be included on the application for admission, mailed to Campus Box 23, Milledgeville, GA 31061, or emailed as a Microsoft Word document to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the applicant’s full name and birth date when sending the recommended items to ensure materials are updated to the correct application.

ZeeMee is a free service that helps students bring their applications to life. Simply copy and paste your link into your application in the resume section. Sign up at ZeeMee.com. Please note, submitting a ZeeMee profile is completely OPTIONAL. Evaluation of your admissions application will not be delayed as long as all materials are received by the stated deadlines.

All applicants who graduate from high school less than 12 months prior to the start of their first term at Georgia College will be classified as freshmen applicants. Freshmen applicants are also subject to the university’s first year on-campus residency requirement.
The successful first-year 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 2015 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.
