Updating Your Application Materials
Freshmen applicants who wish to update their admission file documents will need to consider their application type and semester of entry, as the process is dependent upon those factors (please see below). Remember to use the online admissions status check to view your documents, date(s) received and up-to-date application information.
FALL Freshmen Applicants Only
- If you selected Early Action as your fall application type, you may update your admission documents through the November 1 deadline. After the deadline, you may only update your file with new transcripts and/or test scores if you receive a status of deferred, and will automatically be re-evaluated during the next decision release. Admission status possibilities for early action applicants who complete their files include: accepted, deferred, denied or withdrawn for scores.
- If you selected Regular Decision as your fall application type, you may update your admission documents through the March 1 deadline. After the deadline, you may only update your file with new transcripts and/or test scores if you receive a status of waitlisted, and will be re-evaluated as long as you issue this request to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions in a timely manner. Admission status possibilities for regular decision applicants who complete their files include: accepted, denied, waitlisted or withdrawn for scores.
SPRING/SUMMER Freshmen Applicants:
- If you selected spring or summer as your term of entry, and met either the priority or final deadline, you may request a re-evaluation of your file with new transcripts and/or test scores at any time. To do so, please contact Undergraduate Admissions and request a re-evaluation. Remember that re-evaluations are dependent upon the timing of the request, the application, deadline and entry start date.
- If you meet the required qualifications listed above for a re-evaluation of updated information, or have further questions, please contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at 404-413-2500 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember that all test scores must be submitted electronically, directly from the testing organization and high school transcripts must be official and sealed. The deadline for final review of any additional documents is determined by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
Note: You may only update your file for the application term for which you applied. If you wish to be considered for a different term of entry, you must submit a new application or a reactivation form, depending on the timing. Please visit our reactivation page for more details.
Disclaimer: No guarantees can be made regarding the updating of an applicant’s admission file. Admission policies are subject to change.
Appeals for Admission
Students who receive an official denial admission decision are the only applicants who may submit an appeal. Appeals will be reviewed by a committee and applicants will be notified of a final decision by mail. There are two reasons a student would be considered for appeal:
- A denied applicant has earned higher test scores or raised his/her GPA and wishes to be re-evaluated through submission of updated documents.
- A denied applicant has compelling reasons explaining why his/her academic record or test scores do not meet the standards.
If you wish to appeal your denial to the university based on one of these options, you may complete the Appeal process through submission of the following documents as early as possible, but no later than July 1:
- Official Appeal forms [PDF format]
- Letter of Appeal explaining circumstances and reasons for reconsideration
- Supporting documents (new test scores, updated transcripts, doctors' notes, medical records, death certificate, recommendations, resumes, explanation of academic rigor, etc.)
