First-Year Admissions

Welcome, Potential First-Year Students!

Applying to Warnell

High School Preparation

High school students wishing to pursue any Warnell major will benefit from taking multiple years of high-school chemistry.  Students may also gain college credit while in high school if they earn certain scores on AP and other tests.

UGA First-Year Orientation

First-year students accepted to UGA must attend UGA First-Year Orientation where they will be advised and will register for classes. Prior to and during orientation, students have opportunities to take different placement tests.  As Warnell does not have a foreign language requirement, we recommend that students take another placement test, like the math placement test, unless the student has a desire to continue in a language at UGA.

Pre-Professional Core Curriculum

The pre-professional curriculum consists of 60 semester hours plus one hour of physical education. This meets the University Core Curriculum requirements.

Completion of the pre-professional curriculum is one of the requirements for entrance into the professional program, which consists of the major-level requirements.  Students must apply for the professional program.
