Welcome, Prospective Transfer Students!
Nearly half of the students enrolled in the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources are transfers from other institutions. The Warnell School admits students in two categories: pre-professional and professional students. Pre-professional students are students that are taking core courses either at UGA or at other institutions. Professional students are students that have completed the core curriculum and are ready to begin or are currently taking Forestry and Natural Resources (FANR, FISH, FORS, NRRT, WASR, or WILD) courses. Regardless of status, students wishing to enter Warnell must apply to UGA through Undergraduate Admissions. To enroll as a Warnell student, be sure to indicate "Forestry and Natural Resources" as the school/college in which you plan to enroll.
The Pre-Professional Curriculum consists of 60 semester hours plus one hour of physical education. This meets the University Core Curriculum requirements. It may be completed at the University of Georgia or at other institutions. Students taking the pre-professional course work at another institution should contact Matt Head, Academic Advisor at 706.542.1133 for confirmation of transfer credit.
