Students who transfer to UGA must follow transfer admissions procedures for the University of Georgia and must be accepted to the university before being considered for the Morehead Honors College.

To be eligible for Honors, you must have completed at least 30 transferable hours of graded academic credit and must have at least a 3.8 transfer GPA. Transfer acceptances will be determined on a space-available basis.

As a transfer student, you must apply to the Morehead Honors College prior to your first term at the University of Georgia. Complete transfer applications must be received no later than the following deadlines:

  • Fall Semester: July 15
  • Spring Semester: December 1
  • Summer Semester: May 1

While you may apply to the Morehead Honors College prior to admission to Georgia, Honors applications will not be evaluated until you are officially admitted.

If you are enrolled in classes at another institution in the term prior to your entrance into UGA, an unofficial final transcript must be received before the Morehead Honors College will render a decision on your application.

Letter of Recommendation

One of your college instructors (either a faculty member or TA) must submit a letter of recommendation on your behalf. Your instructor must email a letter to Beth Padilla at elizabethpadilla@uga.edu no later than 5 PM on the day of the application deadline for your application to be considered complete.

The Morehead Honors College will not contact your instructor to obtain a letter of recommendation on your behalf.
