Applicants who will graduate high school with a math course at the pre-calculus or Dual Enrollment Pre-Calculus level or above and are not offered first-year admission and have a family member (grandparent, parent, sibling, or Georgia Tech employee) affiliated with Georgia Tech at the point of application may be given the opportunity to apply as a transfer student through the Conditional Transfer Pathway Program. This program is for previous year first-year applicants only.
The Conditional Transfer Pathway Program is an optional transfer path and valid only for the specific transfer application term listed on your first-year application decision letter. Students choosing not to pursue their summer pathway offer or unable to complete the requirements, will need to apply as part of our regular, competitive transfer application process.
To receive an offer of transfer admission through the Conditional Transfer Pathway, you must:
Submit a Transfer Application
Submit a summer transfer application by January 15. The summer transfer application will open December 1 and close January 15. Applicants to Music Technology must submit a portfolio for review by faculty as part of their application. Approval of the portfolio is also required for admission to this program.
Complete Course Requirements by Major
Review the course requirement by major chart below and complete course requirements for your intended major by June 1.
Complete Credit Hour Requirements (after HS graduation)
Complete a minimum of 30 semester hours (or 45 quarter credits) after high school graduation at a U.S. regionally accredited college by June 1. Credit by exam hours should not be included within the 30-semester hour or 45-quarter credit hour requirement.
Submit Your Transcript(s)
Submit your official transcript(s) by the February 1 summer document deadline. If you’ve attended more than one college, request an official transcript from each one be sent to Georgia Tech.
Check with your institution to make sure credit by exam awards are listed by individual course on your official transcript. If credit by exam scores are not listed, then official test scores (AP/IB) are required by Georgia Tech.
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.
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.
