Freshmen Admission

General Information for First-Year Admission

First-year students may only apply for the summer or fall terms. A completed application for first-year admission includes a non-refundable application fee, high school transcript (or equivalent), and SAT I and/or ACT scores sent directly to the Office of Undergraduate Admission. International applicants and applicants who have been homeschooled may be required to submit additional information. We accept both the Coalition Application and Common Application for first-year admission. We do not have a preference, and there is no advantage in the admission process to using one application or the other. Students should select the application they are most comfortable submitting. 

It is the applicant's responsibility to ensure that all required elements, including the application, non-refundable application fee, high school transcript, and SAT I and/or ACT scores are submitted by stipulated deadlines. All elements must be received prior to the first-year application deadlines. More information regarding first-year application deadlines can be found at

The Office of Undergraduate Admission will consider all completed applications on file by the stated deadlines. For more information regarding first-year admission to the Georgia Institute of Technology, visit, call 404.894.4154, or email
