Regents' Engineering Pathway Program (REPP)

The Regent’s Engineering Transfer Program (RETP) was established in 1986 by the University System of Georgia (USG) to promote engineering education in Georgia.  The USG recently revised the RETP and created the Regent’s Engineering Pathway Program (REPP) to serve more students in Georgia who have an interest in an engineering degree.

REPP promotes all engineering education programs in the state of Georgia; Georgia Institute of Technology, Georgia Southern University, Kennesaw State University, Mercer University, and the University of Georgia.

Students may apply to one or more engineering education programs after completion of curriculum requirements. Admission and curriculum requirements vary by institution.

Select the appropriate option below for Georgia Tech REPP requirements and contact a REPP partner institution for more information.
