I am sharing this news as many Georgia high school students consider all three of the top Georgia colleges — Emory, Georgia Tech and the University of Georgia — now offering a single application to streamline the process.
Here is the release on the new application:
This fall for the first time, the University of Georgia, Georgia Institute of Technology, and Emory University (Emory College of Arts and Sciences and Oxford College) will accept one single college application, streamlining the application process for high school seniors in Georgia to apply to these three institutions.
The Coalition for Access, Affordability, and Success Application now enables seniors to apply to any or all of the three schools, both public and private, with one admission application. The application is part of a set of free tools available to all high school students and schools to help plan for the college admissions process available through the Coalition platform.
Patrick Winter, associate vice president for admissions and enrollment management at UGA, says that “the Coalition platform can help talented Georgia students explore their college options while simplifying the application process. We are excited to be a part of this initiative.”
Paul Kohn, vice provost for enrollment services at Georgia Tech, says, “We greatly benefit from our state having three of the world’s most prestigious universities. Now that all have a shared application platform, the ease with which students can apply to our institutions and the potential for Georgia to retain its best and brightest will surely be enhanced. Together we can improve access, completion and progress toward Gov. Deal’s ambitious goal of many more Georgians having a college degree.”
