Where Do I Start?

Step One

Submit a completed application to the admissions office at the campus you will be attending and pay a one-time, $20 non-refundable application fee. Be sure to fully and accurately answer all residency questions on the application and provide a copy of your Georgia Driver’s License to the Admissions Office. Additional proof of Georgia residency may also be required if seeking in-state tuition.

Step Two

Submit official, sealed high school/GED transcripts. Opened transcripts are not official and therefore invalid.

Students from secondary schools outside the United States must have transcripts translated and evaluated by an approved outside organization.

Home School Graduates

Applicants of home schools who did not attend a recognized accredited program must adhere to the following alternative path for admission:

  • Submit a letter from the local superintendent’s office verifying that the parent or legal guardian notified the superintendent of intent to home school and must also verify that the parent or legal guardian submitted the required attendance reports to the superintendent’s office on a monthly basis as required by O.C.G.A. 20-2-690.
  • Annual progress reports or final transcripts for the equivalent of the home-schooled student’s junior and senior years. The final progress report should include the graduation date.

Recent home school graduates must provide a Declaration of Intent to Utilize a Home Study Program from the Georgia Department of Education instead of the things listed above.

Step Three

Submit official, sealed transcript from all previously attended postsecondary institutions. Opened transcripts are not official and therefore invalid.

Students from postsecondary schools outside the United States must have transcripts translated and evaluated by an approved outside organization.

Step Four

Complete the Compass placement test or submit valid ACT or SAT scores (applicants must have a valid picture ID to test). Transfer students with appropriate English and Math courses may not be required to test.

Step Five

Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is the application for both the Federal Pell Grant AND the HOPE Scholarship/Grant. The application is available online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. THE SCHOOL CODE FOR WIREGRASS GEORGIA TECH IS 005256.
