First-year Admissions

UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CAES) is the ideal place for students who want a tight knit, family-oriented college experience with the benefits of a major university. Students are able to enter CAES as a freshman at the University of Georgia.

To enroll in CAES as a freshman, a student must apply to UGA through the first-year applicants process. A student can choose to apply Early Action or Regular Decision. Early Action applications focus on a student’s academic achievement while Regular Decision applications focus on a holistic view of the student.

Even if a student is planning to apply for freshman admisssion, they may fill out a transfer plan request if they are dual enrolled with a local college while in high school. This will allow students to work with UGA CAES advisors on necessary college coursework for their major at UGA. 

Early Action applications are due to UGA Office of Undergraduate Admissions by October 15 and regular decision applications are due by January 1.
