Graduate Admissions

Georgia State University will continue to review international applicants for admission, regardless of country of citizenship or nationality. Please be advised that students from the seven countries mentioned in the January 27, 2017, Executive Order may have difficulties obtaining a visa and entering the U.S. in the near future.

Graduate admission is a collaborative effort between the Office of Graduate Services and the academic departments. The Office of Graduate Services oversees the application process, assigning an Academic Advisor by program of interest. Each department has a Graduate Director who can provide information about degree requirements, resources and assistantship/fellowship opportunities.  You can find contact information, as well as program specific application instructions on the  Application Requirements & Deadlines page.
