Application Process

The application process can appear intimidating; it's not.  The Atlanta Admissions Office looks forward to serving you if questions arise; if so, don't hesitate to contact us at admissions.atlanta@rts.edu or (770) 952-8884.

How do I apply?

We offer two convenient ways for prospective students to apply; via our Online Application or our Paper Application. Either can be completed at your leisure, although we encourage you to submit all application materials at least 1 month prior to your expected enrollment.  An additional convenience we offer is our rolling admissions process, which enables you to apply at any point throughout the year and, if accepted, register for the first available class.

Online Application

The Online Application is available for prospective students who need instant gratification and like earning points on their credit card.  You will first need to "Request RTS Application ID"; your Admissions representative will ensure you receive it within a timely manner (expect 1-3 days).  Upon receiving it, you are prepared to "Begin Application".  You may upload your picture, pay the application fee, respond to the essays, and even send your references electronically.

Paper Application

 

The Paper Application is available for prospective students who like their handwriting and paying postage.  You are responsible for distributing your reference forms as well as enclosing the appropriate application fee and a recent photograph.
