Freshman Application Update
Freshman Application Deadlines
Through the application options outlined below, we aim to give students the opportunity to apply on their own terms at the time that is most convenient for them.
|Application Plan||Application Deadline||Document Deadline* (transcripts, school forms, etc.)
||SAT/ACT Tests Considered||Decision Date|
|October 21||November 1||Tests sent by November 30||January 4|
|December 15||December 15||Tests sent by December 31||Mid-March|
|Regular Decision||January 10||January 10||Tests sent by December 31||Mid-March|
*Document deadline refers to the date by which your high school transcript, school form and counselor/teacher recommendation must be submitted to Georgia Tech. Documents must be submitted electronically by midnight EST on the deadline date or post-marked by this date.
Which Date Is Right For You?
Students who wish to be considered for the President’s Scholarship Program and/or Honors Program must apply by the Early Action deadline. The October 21st early application date is non-binding, and the application and evaluation is the same as for Regular Decision.
Students who have studied outside the United States during high school should apply no later than December 15th but may apply by October 21st, if they so choose.
January 10 is the last date to apply for freshman admission for the following summer/fall term. The application and evaluation is the same as for Early Action.
Freshman applicants pay a non-refundable application fee of $75 (international applicants: $85). Students who pay an application fee but do not submit an application will not have their fee refunded.
Application Fee Waiver
Freshmen applicants wishing to use an application fee waiver may do so when completing The Common Application. When asked on the application if you plan to use a fee waiver, select yes, and your counselor will verify this information when completing the school report (there is nothing you as a student will need to submit to Georgia Tech).
