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

These requirements are for students who graduated from high school in 2012 or later.

  • English: 4 units
  • Mathematics: 4 units
  • Science: 4 units with labs
  • Social Science: 3 units
  • Foreign Language: 2 units of the same foreign language
