Step 2: Complete Online Application

All programs use the same online graduate application, and you may apply to multiple programs across the three campuses (Atlanta, Europe, Shenzhen). You do not have to finish the application in one sitting. You can save your work and log back in later to complete it.

Step 3: Submit Application Materials

Application materials can be added after you have submitted your application. Refer to your intended graduate program of study webpage to review program-specific application materials.

You can upload unofficial copies of your transcripts for the application, but you must provide official copies of your transcript(s) for your application to be verified (see step eight in After You Apply for more on verification).

The Office of Graduate Education highly recommends that you submit your online application as soon as you complete all sections even if application materials, such as letters of recommendation and test scores, have not yet been received or submitted. These materials will be matched to your application record as we receive them.
