Freshmen are students who have never attended a college or university following their graduation from high school. Freshman students include Home Schooled students and Non-Traditional students (Aged 23 and Over).
Transfer students are students who have previously attended another college or university prior to attending UWG. Transfer requirements vary depending on whether or not a student has more than 30 or less than 30 transferable semester hours.
College Credit Now is a collection of programs that allow students to attend college prior to graduating from high school. Options include Dual Enrollment (attending college and high school credits at the same time), Early Entrance (attending UWG full-time prior to high school graduation), The Advanced Academy of Georgia (a nationally recognized program), and Move on When Ready.
Former students are those that have attended the University of West Georgia before, were not dual-enrolled while in high school, have sat out for a year or more, and are looking to return to complete an undergraduate degree. Please complete the readmission form here.

Transients - students who are actively enrolled at another institution but wish to spend one semester at UWG,
Auditors - students who wish to take courses for personal enrichment and do not receive course credit, and
Post-Baccalaureate - students who have previously received a degree and are taking additional course work not focused on a second degree.
Students who are seeking a VISA to study in the United States or are already in the country on a current VISA.
