Georgia Tech Policy on Competitive Admission (Dual Enrollment Applicants)
The Georgia Institute of Technology is a top-ten public university determined to define the technological research university of the 21st century. Publicly funded and governed by the University System of Georgia, the Institute is committed to preparing students for global leadership, effectiveness and innovation.
Each year Georgia Tech must make fine distinctions among large numbers of highly qualified applicants. The ability to assess consistently all information presented in the application becomes increasingly important. Therefore, the Office of Undergraduate Admission employs a rigorous review process in order to provide an individualized evaluation of every application.
Each applicant is assessed on the basis of achievements and potential in a broad range of academic categories, viewed in the context of the opportunities and challenges the applicant faced. These categories include:
- Strength of educational performance, as measured by the nature and rigor of high school curriculum and academic achievements.
- Potential for academic success, as evidenced by performance on nationally normed standardized tests.
- Need for courses in subjects exhausted in the local high school curriculum.
