Applications are entered into Augusta University's information system the following business day (within 72 hours during peak periods). An email will be sent to the applicant when the application is received by Augusta University. Please check your email setting to allow incoming emails from the @augusta.edu domain.
After your application has been processed in our database, you will be able to check your application status for receipt of your supporting documentation. However, processing this documentation takes 5-10 business days, so please allow time for processing. The online status check provides this information in real time. You will see it as soon as it is processed.
The timeline for application decisions varies. Please be patient as we will send this information to you within two business days of receipt in our office.
Note: All required application materials and documents must be received in order for an application to be considered complete and before an admission decision can be made. Applications and supporting materials received after the program deadline will only be considered on a space-available basis.
After completing the online portion of the application, please email our Bridge Program Coordinator, Laura Lee, MHE, PA-C at firstname.lastname@example.org so that your application can be monitored for supporting document completion through Admissions.
