Readmitted students should take a moment to review the information below in order
to ensure a smooth reinstatement process.
: Official University email communications are sent to through UGAMail email. A student's
MyID account is also the sign-in name that students use to access a wide range of
online services at UGA, which includes access to register in Athena. If creation or
updating of a MyID is required, visit EITS' website at http://eits.uga.edu/access_and_security/myid/

: 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, visit http://drc.uga.edu/
: The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (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 for a student from previous enrollment, a new form is required
to update his or her medical records. Also, depending on the last date of attendance,
a student 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
, select “Forms”, and then choose “Required Forms for New Students”. Students seeking
to learn if they must submit an Immunization form should contact 706-542-1162. Please
note that a UGA MyID is required to fill out the online Health History form.

Transcripts: A student's offer of admission is contingent upon his or her accurate representation
of information and if currently enrolled at another institution his or her final academic
standing at that institution. The University of Georgia reserves the right to withdraw
an admission offer at any time if information is received that, in the University's
judgment, has a significant impact on the student's character or fitness for study
and participation in the UGA campus community.
A student must submit official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended
since his or her 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 a student's eligibility to register for
