Deadline: March 24, 2023, 12:00 am EST
Applicants must submit by the deadline a completed application form, a copy of their transcripts (unofficial accepted), and two letters of recommendation.
In the event a recommender would rather send in the letter directly instead of providing it to the applicant, the recommender may email it to Leslie O’Neill (Leslie.Oneill@ien.gatech.edu). In such a case, the applicant should upload a document containing the name of the recommender as part of the online application process.
All uploaded documents should be named starting with the applicant’s last name (for instance: Smith_Unofficial Transcript_#1.docx).
Note that the application form will only save a submission for 24 hours in the active browser. Preview the questions and collect all the necessary documents for uploading prior to filling out the application.
