Admission to a Warnell Double Dawgs Program

Please refer to our Warnell Double Dawgs Timeline.

Students may apply for preliminary acceptance to the Double Dawgs program in the second semester of their third year.  If accepted preliminarily, students will be allowed to register for graduate-level courses starting the next semester, contingent upon final acceptance. Determination of final acceptance will be made after the second semester grades are available. To be eligible for a Warnell Double Dawgs pathway, students must:

  • Be admitted to the Warnell Professional Program
  • Have a minimum overall GPA of 3.00 at the end of the third year (students may submit an appeal for admission to the associate dean for academic affairs if their GPA is below 3.00)
  • Submit a statement of career objectives
  • Provide a letter of recommendation from a UGA faculty member

In the fourth year, students must apply and be admitted to the UGA graduate school. A Warnell faculty member must agree to serve as the major professor. Requirements include:

  • Graduate School Application
  • Graduate Study Objectives Form
  • Resume
  • Statement of Career Goals
  • Official GRE scores
  • Transcripts
  • Three letters of recommendation

Note that undergraduate financial aid, such as Hope and Zell, are usually not available to students during their fifth (graduate-only) year as the undergraduate degree would be completed at the end of the fourth year.
