- Meet one-on-one with an advisor who knows your requirements
- Stay on track for entering our programs
- You will be added to Warnell’s email list, keeping you connected to news and updates about scholarships, jobs, internships, important dates, and club events
- It’s not set in stone—you can always change!
ALREADY A UGA STUDENT?
Our students receive regular news and updates, including job and internship posts, club meetings and announcements, and access to school-wide events. Students can enter Warnell as a pre-professional student at any time with no prerequisites. But in order to be accepted into the professional program, Warnell requires a minimum 2.5 GPA as well as completion of specific required courses. Our advisors will work with you to recommend certain classes and help you stay on track for graduation.
TRANSFERRING TO UGA?
About half of all Warnell students transfer from another school or college—you are not alone! To apply as a transfer student, visit admissions.uga.edu for full instructions and to submit your transcripts from your previous institutions. To transfer as a sophomore, you must have at least 30 hours of transferrable credits.
