Before submitting the online application, be sure to contact the academic departments to learn of supplemental requirements and departmental deadlines. It is important to apply before departmental deadlines because the application-processing fee is nonrefundable.

Applicants to MBA programs must apply through the Terry College of Business and should not complete this application. Applicants to ALL other programs in the Terry College should complete this application.

Applicants who are currently degree-seeking graduate students at another educational institution and want to apply for transient status for one semester should also complete the Application for Transient Status found in the Supplemental Forms section of this application.
