Yesterday afternoon, March 18, 2022, the University of Georgia released its final round of admissions decisions for first-year applicants to its Class of 2026. University of Georgia did require first-year applicants to submit test scores this admissions cycle, which makes the university’s average SAT and ACT ranges particularly impressive. Interestingly, University of South Carolina to the north remains test optional heading into the 2023 admissions cycle, while University of Florida and Florida State to the south remain test-required like UGA.
Overall forty-two percent of applicants were accepted (no in-sate vs. out-of-state acceptance rate breakdown was shared, though the university did take the time to report that fifteen students accepted had the first name of Georgia; last year roughly 15% of UGA’s first-year class came from outside of Georgia), nearly eight percent waitlisted, and forty percent denied. Roughly ten percent of applications were left incomplete or cancelled.
