- Standardized Testing
Students are required to submit ACT or SAT scores and sub-scores to the University prior to being considered for admission to a major in the Terry College. Students may also submit a score from the ETS Proficiency Profile if they believe their ACT/SAT scores do not represent their current performance level. The ETS Proficiency Profile is a standardized, multiple-choice assessment of the academic skills developed in General Education Areas I-IV of the core curriculum (reading, writing, critical thinking and mathematics). Tests are administered by the UGA Testing Center and all questions regarding testing times and costs should be directed there. Contact the UGA Testing Center online at http://testing.uga.edu/ or by calling 706.542.3183 to schedule an appointment. The ETS may be taken a maximum of twice per major application cycle. Sample questions can be found here.
- The Statement of Purpose
A brief essay (300-400 words) in which the applicant describes his/her interest in the major and his/her future goals. If applying the IB co-major, the first-choice Statement of Purpose should describe the interests/goals in IB and the level of foreign language the applicant has satisfied. If the applicant is proficient in a language without college credit, include this in the Statement of Purpose.
- Grades in prefix courses
Grades in courses previously complete in the prefix of the major to which the applicant is applying can be considered, but are not required, for admission to the major. For example, if applying to the RMIN major, grades in RMIN courses (e.g., RMIN 4000) can be considered. In addition, grades in the College's Foundation First courses (FINA 3000, MARK 3000, MGMT 3000), as well as MSIT 3000, can be considered by all majors if completed.
