The most important consideration for determining eligibility for freshman admissions at Georgia Regents University is the Freshman Index (FI). The FI is determined by the following formula(s)
FI = SAT critical reading + SAT math + (High School GPA x 500)
FI = (ACT Composite x 42) + (High School GPA x 500) + 88
WHAT PARENTS SAY ABOUT GRU
I have had three young adults graduate from GRU: Catherine, Class of 2009; Matthew, Class of 2012; and Caroline, Class of 2009. From business to education to health sciences, each had an outstanding educational experience along with an outstanding college environment, and each was in a totally different field of study.

We are very excited that our daughter, LeAndrea was afforded the opportunity to be a part of the University Village at GRU for her first Year of College. Her experience of connecting with other students has positioned her for the transition that takes place as you embrace adulthood. I found the atmosphere to be family oriented and the staff have always been helpful.

Macy absolutely loves GRU! She has become very involved in both her studies and student organizations throughout her undergrad experience. I am thankful for this great opportunity she has to learn amongst great educators and in such a stimulating and thriving environment.
Denita K. // Irwinton, GA.
Not only has Georgia Regents University offered my daughter a challenging and enlightening academic experience, but also the opportunity for personal growth and maturity. She has taken advantage of GRU's many international programs to travel and study as GRU offers an education that goes far beyond the traditional classroom experience.
