With approximately 10% 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 most appropriate admission decision for each student. 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. If you have been enrolled in high schools in more than one location, your application will be reviewed in context of each location.
International first-year applicants go through the same application process as all other students, regardless of residency. However, transcript requirements may vary (see below). We recognize that many educational systems around the world do not fit the four-year US high school model. We require academic records from each year of your secondary school experience to evaluate your application for admission. 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 (see below).
