Students interested in transferring to UGA and Franklin College should visit UGA Admissions for eligibility and application information as well as the Transfer Equivalency search, which can help you answer the question, “How will my classes transfer to UGA?”

Transfer students make up approximately 20% of the nearly 10,000 Franklin College undergraduates. The Office of Transfer Academic Services (OTAS) recognizes and values transfer students as an integral part of the UGA student body. In order to further welcome and engage our incoming students, OTAS has brought aboard six new Transfer Ambassadors! The Ambassadors represent and serve as resources for the Franklin College transfer student population. Meet them here!
