Yes, all international students whose native language is not English and wish to be considered for financial aid must submit a TOEFL iBT score along with the application, regardless of the graduating institution. Strong preference will be given to students who score 26 or higher on the iBT Speak Test and 100 or higher on the total TOEFL test.
Do I need transcripts?
Yes, submit 2 official copies from any school you have attended directly to:
University of Georgia
279 Williams Street
Athens, GA 30602-1777
How do references send their letters of recommendation?
Reference writers can submit their letters either by mail or online. Letters of recommendation sent by mail should be addressed to the attention of Donna Sisk at:
University of Georgia
Terry College of Business
350 Brooks Hall
Athens, GA 30602
Reference writers may also submit letters electronically. The online application will prompt you to provide references' email addresses.
How will I find out if I am accepted?
The UGA Graduate School must concur with the departmental admissions committee before the decision becomes official. An "official acceptance letter" will be mailed by the UGA Graduate School. Prior to the receipt of the Graduate School's official notification, any notification of acceptance communicated by the Terry College, either verbally or written, is considered "pending Graduate School approval" and is unofficial.
How do I check to see if you have all of my materials?
Visit the Graduate School website to check on the progress of your application. To confirm that your statement of purpose and recommendations have been received, contact Donna Sisk.
Is it possible to submit an application with GRE results pending?
Please contact the Graduate Coordinator in your specific program regarding their preferences for GRE or GMAT scores. Some departments (Economics) require the GRE, other departments (ACCT) require the GMAT, while some other departments may accept either under certain circumstances.
What is the deadline?
Departments will begin reviewing applications on January 4. Applications will be accepted for review until admissions to your specific doctoral program have been completed.
