Conditional Transfer Pathway Program

First-Year applicants not offered first-year admission may receive a Conditional Pathway program offer to apply as a transfer student if they meet the following eligibility:

  • GT first-year applicant not offered first-year admission.

  • Pre-Calculus Math Completion (High School or Dual Enrollment)

  • Have a family member (grandparent, parent, sibling, or GT employee) affiliated with Georgia Tech listed within their first-year application.

Students who apply to transfer and meet all the requirements of the Conditional Pathway program below will receive an offer of transfer admission for the specific summer term and academic major.

Computer Science Major Restriction (effective December 2023)
All Georgia Tech majors except for Computer Science are eligible for students when applying to transfer as part of the Conditional Pathway program. Due to high CS demand, we use a selective, holistic review process that considers a variety of comparative factors as part of the admission selection process for all CS transfer applicants. This CS major restriction does not impact students who received a Conditional Pathway program offer prior to December 2023.

Pathway Requirements

To receive an offer of transfer admission through the Conditional Transfer Pathway, you must:

  1. Submit a Transfer Application
    Submit a summer transfer application by January 15. The summer transfer application will open December 1 and close January 15.

  5. Submit Your Spring Grade Report
    A spring grade report form will be added by Georgia Tech to your summer transfer application checklist in March. Students will self-report their current spring grades. Students will need to reach out to their professors to gather grade information for this form.

  6. Meet GPA Requirements
    Earn a cumulative GPA of 3.3 or higher and a combined math/lab science GPA of 3.3 or higher. The cumulative GPA includes coursework taken at all colleges and/or universities attended.  The math/lab science GPA includes a combination of mathematics courses at the calculus level and higher along with all natural lab science courses including both lecture and laboratory components.

    Lab science subject areas include Biology, Chemistry, Calculus-Based Physics, and Environmental Sciences. GT’s transfer equivalency table and GT catalog are your two best sources of information for reviewing lab science coursework.
