How to Apply
The University of Georgia Graduate School has separate processes for students applying from within the United States and those applying internationally.
Application for admission into either the MA or Phd program for the following academic year, and for financial aid, should be received by January 31. A complete application includes:
A) the application form and fees, and all transcripts, which are submitted to the Graduate School; Submission of GRE score reports are optional, but needed for applicants who wish to compete for university-wide fellowships and grants. These awards are highly competive and require top GRE scores.
B) a CV, a statement of purpose of 2-3 pages, and a writing sample of 12-15 pages;
C) 3 letters of recommendation, which may either be uploaded through the Graduate School once the application is received, or sent directly to the attention of the graduate coordinator, Comp. Lit. Department.
D) a personal interview, conducted by Skype or another means of electronic, audio-visual telecommunication
The Graduate School also requires foreign applicants to submit TOEFL scores and a statement of financial certification. Under exceptional circumstances applicants may be admitted at mid-year, but in such cases students are unlikely to receive any financial assistance.
