From there you may click the "Ask a Question" tab to contact a support team and access a comprehensive FAQ resource covering different aspects of the application process.

Document Deadline

  • You SHOULD NOT wait to the last minute to send documents to us.
  • Scores from standardized tests already taken should be sent to us immediately, so your file is not held up in initial review. Additional scores may be sent once available.
  • Required documents will be added to your application up to two weeks prior to decision release.
  • Any files still incomplete two weeks prior to decision release will not receive a decision. 

Which Date Is Right For You?

Early Action
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 15th early application date is non-binding, and the application and evaluation is the same as for Regular Decision.

Regular Decision
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.

Application Fees
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
Freshman 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 (there is nothing you as a student will need to submit to Georgia Tech).
