UGA announces final admission decisions for the incoming Class of 2028

The University of Georgia announced final admission decisions for the incoming Class of 2028 on Friday, accepting thousands of potential new students.

UGA received over 43,090 applications and accepted 15,900 students for the fall semester between early and regular decision. The class of 2028 comes from 49 states, Washington D.C. and 41 countries. Nearly 22% of admits are first generation college students, meaning neither parent nor guardian has earned a bachelor’s degree.

In-state students, who make up 80% of the accepted class, come from 148 of Georgia’s 159 counties. Applications from Georgia students increased by 7% this year.

Students that were offered admission boasted high academic records. The middle 50% of admitted students reported a GPA of 4.05-4.33; an ACT score of 29-34; an SAT score of 1280-1470; and 8-13 AP, IB or dual enrollment courses.

“As the University of Georgia’s reputation for excellence continues to grow, we are attracting the best and brightest students from across our state and around the world,” said UGA President Jere W. Morehead. “I congratulate all of the students admitted to the Class of 2028 and look forward to the many contributions they will make to our stellar academic community.”
