Admissions Requirements

Students are admitted conditionally as long as admission requirements are met and unofficial copies of transcripts from all colleges and universities attended are submitted to the Office of Admissions. Official copies of transcripts from all colleges and universities previously attended must be received before a student can be admitted unconditionally. If all official transcripts are not received by the end of the fifth week of a student’s first semester or term, the student will not be allowed to register for any subsequent terms until all official transcripts are submitted.

Admission Categories for Degree-Seeking Students
Regardless of the category of admission, the University reserves the right to determine the applicability of any transfer credit toward the fulfillment of a student’s degree requirements at Athens State.

  • Regular Transfer: Completion of at least 60 semester hours of college credit from a regionally accredited institution with a GPA of at least 2.0, or completion of an associate’s degree.

  • Joint Enrollment: Completion of at least 32 semester hours at a community college with at least a 3.0 GPA and permission of the instructional dean at the community college.

  • Early Admission: Completion of at least 41 semester hours from a regionally accredited institution with at least a 2.0 GPA and completion of all General Education requirements.

  • International Students: In addition to meeting the requirements for one of the above categories, international students must provide additional documentation and meet additional requirements. Select the International Students link in the menu at left for additional information.
Non-degree Seeking Students
Individuals who do not intend to seek a degree may be admitted to the University to pursue a limited objective such as personal enrichment or teacher certification/recertification, or as a transient student from another institution. For additional information and requirements, see the current academic catalog or contact the Office of Admissions.

Students who are returning after an absence of more than one semester (excluding Summer term) must complete and submit a Readmission form, available at the Forms link in the menu at left.
