The transfer application process is a selective, competitive process. Georgia Tech uses a holistic review process to select applicants who will benefit from the campus learning environment and enrich the entire student body. Minimum eligibility requirements to apply are listed below.
Transfer Credit Hours
An eligible transfer applicant is a degree-seeking student who has completed a minimum of thirty (30) semester or forty-five (45) quarter credit hours transferable to Georgia Tech. This includes students who have earned college credit through Move On When Ready (MOWR), dual enrollment, early college, or examination (AP or IB).
A transfer student may not enroll in the same year as the student's high school graduation. For example, if a student graduates high school in May 2017, he or she will not be eligible to enroll as a transfer student until 2018 or later.
Course Requirements by Major
Course requirements by major must be complete by the course requirement deadline. It is the student’s responsibility to review the transfer equivalency table and review course requirements by major are transferable to Georgia Tech.
Non-native speakers of English who seek transfer from a Non-U.S. institution must complete two college-level English Composition courses to satisfy the English Proficiency requirement at Georgia Tech.
English composition courses must be transferable to Georgia Tech as ENGL 1101 and ENGL 1102 on the transfer equivalency table. English language proficiency exam scores (ex. TOEFL, IELTS) and English taught abroad as a foreign language do not satisfy the English Proficiency requirement at Georgia Tech.
Grade Point Average (GPA)
The minimum GPA requirement is 3.3 on a 4.0 grade scale for College of Computing and College of Engineering applicants. The minimum GPA requirement is 3.0 on a 4.0 grade scale for College of Design, College of Sciences, Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts, and Scheller College of Business applicants.
