First-time freshmen applying for fall semester entry will be considered for admission beginning in November and decisions will continue to be made throughout the academic year until enrollment goals have been met. It is recommended that students apply as early as possible to be considered for admission, university housing, scholarship funding, and need-based financial aid.
Early Action Deadline (Atlanta Campus)
Qualified freshmen applicants for whom Georgia State University’s Atlanta Campus is a top choice are encouraged to apply for admission on or before November 15th of their senior year to receive an admission decision no later than January 30. Primary consideration under the Early Action plan will be focused on demonstrated academic achievement, including core academic course grades through the junior year, rigor of curriculum, and performance on the SAT and/or ACT with writing assessment. The Early Action plan is non-binding and provides students an early decision with no obligation to enroll; this option is only open to freshmen who apply for the fall entry term to Georgia State – Atlanta Campus. An Early Action applicant must submit the required application, fee and transcripts along with official SAT/ACT scores sent online from the appropriate testing agency no later than November 15.
Early Action applicants will receive notification of their admission decision in January, and may be offered admission for fall, deferred to the Regular Decision process for further consideration, or denied admission to Georgia State University. Applicants who are offered admission under Georgia State's Early Action plan are not bound to accept the offer of admission and are given until May 1 to submit their confirmation intent to enroll and attend Georgia State. If an applicant wishes for November or December test scores or mid-year senior grades to be considered in the admissions decision, he or she would be better advised to apply under the Regular Decision plan and deadline.
Early Action Applicants deferred to the Regular Decision plan will be strongly encouraged to submit mid-year senior grades and improved SAT and/or ACT scores that show improvement. All deferred Early Action candidates with complete applications will be notified of a final admission decision no later than May 1.
Scholarship Consideration Deadline (Atlanta Campus)
If you wish to be considered for a Georgia State University Atlanta Campus scholarship based on competitive test scores and academic achievement, be sure to submit your completed application and required admission documents no later than January 7. Only students with completed admission files, including submission of all required admission documents and fee will be considered for possible scholarships. If you are considered for specific scholarships, you may be contacted by the Honors Program for additional information. Applicants who choose to apply under this plan will receive an admission decision no later than May 1.
Regular Decision Deadline (Atlanta Campus)
Freshmen applicants choosing this plan must submit their application no later than March 1 of their senior year and will receive a decision no later than May 1. Primary consideration under the Regular Decision plan will also be focused on demonstrated academic achievement (grades in core academic courses, rigor of curriculum, and performance on the SAT or ACT with writing assessment). Both Regular Decision and Deferred Early Action candidates will be notified of acceptance, waitlisted or denied admission to Georgia State University no later than May 1.
