GGC extends fall semester application deadline

LAWRENCEVILLE — High application demand has caused Georgia Gwinnett College officials to push back their deadline for the fall semester.

The college has also expanded its capabilities to meet the high volume of phone calls, and extended testing center hours for students taking the COMPASS test. The new deadline for the fall semester is June 2.

The University System of Georgia requires the COMPASS test for GGC applicants who have not met the minimum score requirements on the SAT or ACT tests. COMPASS stands for Computer-based Assessment and Support System.

“We’re experiencing a significant increase in applications over the same time last year,” Tee Mitchell, director of admissions said in a press release. “Expanding our call capabilities while extending the application deadline and testing center hours will give all students interested in attending GGC a better chance to complete their applications and be accepted.”

Applications for admission must be completed by June 2 and test scores and transcripts must be submitted by June 9.
