Admissions/New Student Scholarships

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions has a scholarship program for new students (not including Cadets) who have applied for admission to UNG but have not yet enrolled. (Scholarship information for new Cadets is in the next section below.) There are three types of scholarships that the Office of Undergraduate Admissions administers: academic, leadership and presidential tuition waivers.

Admissions - Academic Scholarships

Academic Scholarships are automatically awarded to new students who have the highest freshman indices or transfer grade point averages of all applicants accepted for admission prior to March 1 for each summer and fall semester. No scholarship application is required or accepted.

Admissions - Leadership Scholarships

Leadership Scholarships are awarded to new students based on a combination of prior academic performance, participation in extracurricular activities, and leadership positions/awards. Each category is considered equally important. To be considered, new students are required to fill out an Admissions Scholarship Application Form. Note that some scholarships are awarded based on where students live, what high schools they attended, level of education their parents attained, types of jobs their parents have, financial need, and other criteria established by scholarship donors. Students applying for admission for any semester are eligible.

You must complete your application for admission prior to applying for a Leadership Scholarship. The deadline to apply is:

  • Fall: March 1
  • Spring: October 1
  • Summer : March 1

Admissions - Presidential Tuition Waivers

Presidential Tuition Waivers (PTW) are competitively awarded to out-of-state and international students based on academic performance and/or test scores. All admitted out-of-state and international students who are legally present in the US will be considered (no separate application is required) and the qualifications of recipients will depend on the competitiveness of the pool.

Recipients may be awarded a half PTW, which allows students to pay tuition at the in-state tuition rate plus half the out-of-state rate, or a full PTW, which allows recipients to pay tuition at the in-state rate, for up to nine semesters if renewal criteria are met.

This results in a savings of $25,000 to $50,000 over four years. PTW recipients will be notified of their award in March/April for the Summer and Fall semesters and November/December for Spring.

Honors Program Presidential Scholarships

The Choate Family Presidential Scholarship and the William P. Roberts Presidential Scholarship are awarded competitively to the most academically qualified incoming freshmen. Scholars receive up to $1,000 per year, renewable for up to four years of study, depending on degree track. At present, Presidential Scholarships are available on the Dahlonega campus only.
