Admission Requirements and Procedures

Application materials for all non-doctoral programs may be obtained from the Office of Graduate Admissions or from the North Georgia web site, All non-doctoral applicants must pay a one-time, non-refundable application fee, submit a graduate application, North Georgia immunization certificate, and other application materials required.

Applicants to the Doctor of Physical Therapy apply through Physical Therapist Centralized Application Service (PTCAS) which allows physical therapy applicants to use a single, web-based application and one set of materials to apply to multiple physical therapy programs. It is the applicant's responsibility to read and follow all PTCAS and program-specific instructions.

In order to be considered for graduate admission to North Georgia College & State University, applicants must hold at least a bachelor's degree from a regionally-accredited college or university and must meet other program admissions requirements. Graduate admission is program specific. In general, applicants should contact the program of interest before applying for graduate admission.

Applicants who are currently in the last semester of undergraduate work when applying will be evaluated based on their completed academic work and their current course enrollment. Formal admissions decisions for these students cannot be made until the degree is conferred.

A letter from the graduate program verifies official acceptance or denial to the university. Students who are admitted but do not enroll within one year of acceptance must reapply. Students who were previously enrolled but have not been in attendance within the last three semesters must also reapply. In addition, currently enrolled students wanting to change graduate programs must reapply to the new program.

All documents and materials submitted to fulfill the application requirements for entry to non-doctoral programs and for non-degree or transient admission at North Georgia become the property of the university and will not be returned. These materials are kept for one year for incomplete application files; three years for completed and accepted, but not enrolled.
