Document Deadline

Files must be complete no later than two weeks prior to decision release in order for you to receive a decision in the round to which you have applied. However, you are strongly encouraged to complete your file as quickly as possible, so our admission counselors can begin review as early as possible.

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
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).
