Facts & Statistics

Tips for Getting In
  • Emphasize extracurriculars and take the opportunity to express a desire to get involved on campus.
  • Even if it's not your first choice school, say it is.
  • Our business school is the hardest to get into. Don't expect to get in as easily as someone that wants to major in an arts or humanities subject.
  • Prepare yourself for diversity; try to make that clear in your application.
  • Show enthusiasm for or at least a willingness to embrace the city and downtown Atlanta.
  • They focus on grades and SAT and ACT scores, so try to make sure these facets of your application are strong.
Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • Adding or dropping a class is not a big deal, and students have more options than they think, especially during the first two years of seeking their undergraduate degrees. Students don't get penalized for adding/dropping a class, so if they don't like a teacher or the assignments on the syllabus, then there are probably other options. Explore them and see what works best for you.
  • Commuting students have to anticipate a lot of traffic in the mornings and evenings, and during sporting events or concerts. The downside of going to school in such a central location is that it's surrounded by a lot of other big, state-wide organizations, and it's evident when special events are scheduled.
  • Do individual research about the classes and credit requirements for your given major, and use the academic advisors and departmental workers as supplemental help. Students tend to get a few different answers to the same question-especially if a student assistant is giving the guidance-so gather information and then confirm it later with advisors. They have proven to be unreliable too many times, so try not to depend entirely on others' advice when it comes to something as important as the right credits you need to graduate.
  • Don't leave belongings in plain sight in cars. Cars are prime targets for city creepers that are looking to steal from students.
  • Dorms are more expensive than a lot of off-campus housing. Living in student housing is good for meeting other students, but for those trying to save money, try looking at the thousands of apartments and houses for rent in the area. If it's not within walking distance from campus, chances are MARTA (the train system that runs through Atlanta) or some other form of public transportation is close by.
  • Getting around campus is easier than it sounds. The streets and city blocks are walkable, and the buildings really aren't that far apart.
  • Shop around in different outlets for textbooks. Unless the professor says otherwise, it's not necessary to buy textbooks before the class starts, even if the materials needed are listed beforehand online (which most are). Take the time to look at the new and used book selections online and in the few competing bookstores on campus. It can save you a lot of money.
Interviews & Information Sessions
The Office of Undergraduate Admissions hosts 45-minute information sessions that begin at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday through Friday (except during holidays, breaks, or other campus closings). During these sessions, details about admissions requirements, degree programs, financial aid options, campus life, and housing are discussed, and these sessions are designed to end in time for visitors to take the campus tours at 10:45 a.m. and 2:45 p.m., if interested.
Campus Tours
Ninety-minute campus tours are given Monday through Friday at 10:45 a.m. and 2:45 p.m. (except during holidays, breaks, or other campus closings). To attend one of these tours, those interested must register online for a specific date using a registration form available at
webdb.gsu.edu/visit/visitForm/. Visitors are given a tour of classroom buildings, student facilities, on-campus housing, and several Atlanta landmarks that have become a part of the campus.

In addition, every fall an in-depth open house called "Panther Preview" is held specifically for prospective students. Occasionally, the University schedules similar events throughout the year; dates and details about these events are updated online on the Undergraduate Admissions Web site.
