Popular Questions about Submitting Your Application

Have a question about submitting your application? I may be able to answer it for you right now!

Two very popular questions regarding submitting the application are below:
Q1. Do I need to wait until my recommendations are complete to submit the application?
A1. No! There is no need to wait. The system you are using to complete your application is very sophisticated and allows us to receive your recommendation after you hit submit. If you hope to apply for a certain deadline, please try to emphasize the importance of time to your recommenders. Remember, be firm but not overbearing about it - they are doing YOU a favor.

Q2. I sent my transcripts on Saturday (it's Tuesday)... can I make sure that my transcripts and test scores have been received?
A2. While we are on top of our game here at Terry, there are some things that may not be humanly possible. It takes at least 3-5 business days to match your application with your materials once we receive them, and if we receive multiple pieces at different times, the process can take a little longer.
To check to make sure your materials have been received, please log back into your application (even after you submit it) and you will be able to check. If it has been a while (more than 2-3 weeks) from the date you think we should have received your materials, please email us at terrymba@terry.uga.edu and we may be able to help.

We are excited you are applying! Good luck!
