With approximately 9% of our undergraduate students from abroad, Georgia Tech traditionally receives first-year applications from over 100 countries each year.
In our admission process, we closely review your specific academic background and particular educational system in order to make the best possible admission decisions. Applications are read within the context from which you are applying. For example, if you are from Panama but living in Illinois, your application will be read with those from Illinois. Likewise, if you are from Illinois but living in France, your application will be read with those from France.
International first-years go through the same application process as all other students, regardless of residency. However, transcript requirements may vary (see below).
If your high school curriculum is fewer than four years of study, you will need to submit a fourth year of transcripts in order to enroll. For instance, if you complete high school in China where high school consists of 10, 11, 12 grades, you will also need to submit a copy of 9 grade transcripts before enrolling.
