Welcome back to UGA! Please take a moment to review the information below to ensure
a smooth reinstatement process.
: Official University e-mail communications are sent to your UGAMail e-mail account
address ("email@example.com"). Your MyID account ("your_myid") is also the sign-on
name that students use to access a wide range of online services at UGA, which includes
access to register in Athena. If you need to create or update your MyID, go to (http://eits.uga.edu/access_and_security/myid/
Disability Resource Center
: The Disability Resource Center (DRC) facilitates accommodations for student with
disabilities in order to promote equal educational opportunities and an accessible
academic, social, and physical environment. For more information about the services
and accommodations provided by DRC, go to http://drc.uga.edu/
: The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, or FERPA, is a federal law designed
to protect the privacy of education records and provide students with certain rights
with respect to their education records. The University of Georgia strives to fully
comply with this law by protecting the privacy of student records and judiciously
evaluating requests for release of information from these records. FERPA authorizes
the release of “Directory Information” without the student’s prior written consent
under certain conditions set forth in the Act. For more detailed information regarding
FERPA, click here.
: An online health history form must be completed prior to registration. Although
a form may be on file from previous enrollment, a new form is required to update your
medical records. Also, depending on your last date of attendance, you may or may not
be required to complete part of the Immunization form. To access these forms, go to
the Health Services website (www.uhs.uga.edu
), click “Forms”, and then click “Required Forms for New Students”. To find out if
you must submit an Immunization form, call 706-542-1162. Please note: a UGA MyID is
required to fill out the online Health History form.
: Several options for campus housing exist for students at UGA. For more information,
go to http://housing.uga.edu/
: As a former student, you are not required to attend Orientation but are welcomed
to do so if you wish to familiarize yourself with current University policies and
procedures. See the Office of Undergraduate Admission’s orientation website (https://www.admissions.uga.edu/article/orientation-home-page.html
) for more information.

Transcripts: Your offer of admission is contingent upon your accurate representation of information
and, if currently enrolled at another institution, your final academic standing at
that institution. The University of Georgia reserves the right to withdraw an admission
offer at any time if we receive information that, in our judgment, has a significant
impact on your character or fitness for study or participation in the UGA community.
You must submit official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended since
your most recent enrollment at UGA. It is recommended that final transcripts be received
at least one month before registration or as soon as possible after readmission. Late
submission of transcripts may impede your eligibility to register for classes.
Mail transcripts to:

(Policy Manual 4.1.6), students admitted or readmitted to the University of Georgia
for fall 2011 or thereafter are required to provide verification of their lawful presence
in the United States before their admission or readmission to the university can be
finalized. Students who file a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and
are eligible for federal student aid will have their lawful presence verified as part
of the FAFSA process. Students who do not submit a FAFSA or the FAFSA process does
not confirm their citizenship status may submit the following for verification of
- A copy of the front side of a current driver’s license issued by the state of Georgia
after January 1, 2008 with an expiration date after the first day of your readmit
term. A "Limited-Term" license can not be accepted as proof of lawful presence.
- A copy of a current U.S. passport with an expiration date after the first day of your
readmit term (copy must include the photo page).
Email, Mail or fax documentation for verification of lawful presence to:
