Applying to the Computer Science Major

Incoming UGA students and transfer students:

As an undergraduate student, you do not submit a separate application to the Computer Science Department. Instead, simply list "Computer Science" as your desired major when you submit the UGA Admission application form.

Existing UGA students:

To add CSCI as a major, visit Franklin college's offices in Memorial Hall, next to Sanford Stadium. Or, visit here.

If you are unsure whether you want to switch to Computer Science, or need help estimating how long it will take you to finish your degree, contact Dr. Chris Plaue at or 706-542-4799 for an evaluation appointment.
