Admissions

Admissions Policy and Procedure

Admission into any General Assembly course, except for those offered in Georgia, requires that the student have a high school diploma or equivalent (General Education Diploma — GED) or a diploma from an institution of higher education accredited by an accrediting association recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. General Assembly does not admit ability-to-benefit students.

International Students and English Language Services

General Assembly does not offer visa services to prospective students from other countries or English language services. General Assembly also does not vouch for student status or any associated charges. General Assembly does not offer English as a Second Language instruction. All instruction occurs in English. English language proficiency is documented by:

  • The Admissions interview.
  • Receipt of prior education documentation, as stated in the Admissions Policy.
  • Receipt of Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) examination score of 80 or higher for the Internet-based test and 550 or higher for the paper-based test.

Admissions Procedure

Our Admissions process is designed to elicit the core traits we’ve seen help students succeed in and after the program. After you apply, we review it and move select applicants forward to a phone interview. During this interview, we’ll learn more about your background, and you’ll have the chance to ask questions. If the phone interview is successful, we’ll move you on to a diagnostic assessment and/or pre-admit work (if applicable to your chosen course).

Once you have completed all requisite steps in this process, you will receive confirmation of your admission from your Admissions representative.
