The deadline for Fall admission with full consideration for all possible financial aid is January 1. Applications completed after that date will still be considered for admission, but will miss some financial aid opportunities. The department normally does not admit students for Spring semester, as both our assistantship budget and our program of courses are geared toward Fall admissions.
NEW: Effective with applications for 2011, the admissions committee requires that applicants take the Mathematics Subject GRE.

The Mathematics Department offers financial support to all PhD students as long as they are making satisfactory progress toward their degrees. Historically, about half of our MA and MAMS students have received financial support; recently, the percentage of supported Masters students has been higher. Available support includes the prestigious Presidential Fellowships at $24,000 for five years, Graduate School Assistantships with no teaching duties for two years, and Departmental Teaching Assistantships. In addition, we support most of our graduate students during the summer. To see the cost of living in Athens, GA, you may use the link Athens/Clarke County, Georgia (Cost of Living).
