Testing Requirements
Students are required to submit ACT or SAT scores and sub-scores to the University prior to being considered for admission to a major in the Terry College. In addition to required ACT/SAT scores, students may also supplement their application by submitting a score from the ETS Proficiency Profile if they believe their ACT/SAT scores do not represent their current performance level. If you have not taken the ACT or SAT, you must take the ETS to be eligible to apply to a Terry major. Scores from all ETS attempts will be reported directly to the Terry College from UGA Testing Services; the highest ETS score will be considered in a student's application. IMPORTANT: Read detailed Testing Requirement instructions.

Accounting and Finance applicants must also complete the Terry Accounting Exam.

The ETS Proficiency Profile and the Accounting Exam are administered by UGA Testing Services, and all questions regarding testing times and costs should be directed there (testing.uga.edu).

Statement of Purpose
The Statement of Purpose is a brief essay (300-400 words) which describes your interest in a major and future goals. A separate Statement of Purpose is required for each major.

  • If applying to the International Business (IB) co-major, only the first-choice Statement of Purpose should describe the applicant's interests/goals in IB and the level of foreign language satisfied.

Major Selections
Students apply to a first- and second-choice major. Students who are not accepted to a first-choice major will be considered for acceptance to a second-choice major (second-choice major options include ECON, MGMT, REAL and RMIN).
