62 and Older Program

If you are a Georgia resident at least 62 years of age, you are allowed to take classes on a space-available basis without payment, excluding supplies, laboratory, or shop fees.

To enroll at Georgia Tech under the Board of Regents' 62 or Older Program, you must be a legal resident of Georgia. Students accepted under this program may enroll as a regular or auditing Georgia Tech student on a space-available basis. A waiver of in-state tuition and fees may be granted to a legal resident of Georgia aged 62 and over. This waiver can remain in effect as long as you are continuously enrolled. You will be responsible for supplies, laboratory, and shop fees.

Graduate Studies: If you would like to take graduate-level classes at Georgia Tech, whether or not you intend to complete a degree, you must apply through the Office of Graduate Studies.

Admission Requirements

62 or Older Program students will meet all Institute undergraduate admission requirements, along with prerequisites for the course(s) scheduled, regardless of the type of enrollment. Please read through the Admission Types and their requirements and choose the plan that is appropriate for your background and educational goals. Most of our students in the 62 or Older Program are taking undergraduate courses as non-degree students; therefore, we will begin with that option.

Undergraduate Degree-Seeking Programs

If you have never done any college work and would like to pursue a Bachelor of Science Degree, you may apply as a first-year undergraduate student. We do not recommend this application for any student who has been away from high school for more than two years. Because of the competitive first-year applicant pool, we recommend that students who have been away from high school for two years plan to transfer to Georgia Tech after completing introductory course work.

Transfer admission to Georgia Tech is a selective, competitive process. Each major at Georgia Tech has specific course requirements for admission.

Application Requirements

Readmission for Former Georgia Tech Students

If you were previously enrolled as an undergraduate student at Tech and have been out of school for two or more consecutive terms, you must apply for readmission. Readmission includes Tech graduates and former students. If you were previously enrolled at Georgia Tech in graduate courses only and wish to take undergraduate courses and not pursue a degree now, you will apply as a Special Student as described above.
