Dual Degree Engineering Transfer Pathway Program

Georgia Tech offers the Dual Degree Engineering Pathway Program to assist students seeking an education that combines a liberal arts program with technological curriculum.

A dual degree student attends a participating liberal arts college for three years, then attends Georgia Tech for approximately two years. Upon completion of the program at Tech, the student receives degrees from the liberal arts college and Georgia Tech. A student's program of study at Georgia Tech may concentrate in any engineering program.

Admission Process

  • Meet Dual Degree partner institution and Georgia Tech transfer admission requirements at the document deadline of the term of application (fall, spring, or summer).

  • Successful completion of course requirements for your intended engineering major.

  • Dual Degree completion requirements may vary between partner institutions. Contact the coordinator at a partner institution for program eligibility and completion requirements.

  • Students not enrolled within their Dual Degree institution for more than two consecutive semesters must re-enroll for a minimum of one semester prior to a Dual Degree application to Georgia Tech.

  • Meet the minimum grade point average (GPA) requirement by engineering major for both GPA calculations (overall, math and lab science) by the document deadline of the term of application.

    • The minimum GPA requirement for high demand engineering majors (Aerospace, Biomedical, Mechanical, Electrical, Computer, Industrial, and Chemical & Biomolecular) is 3.3 on a 4.0 grade scale. The GPA requirement for all remaining engineering majors is 3.0 on a 4.0 grade scale.

    • AE and BME GPA requirements increased to 3.3 during the 2020-21 academic year. Georgia Tech will honor the 3.0 GPA requirement for AE and BME applicants enrolled at Dual Degree partner institutions prior to the Fall 2020 term.

  • The overall GPA includes coursework taken at all previous institutions (domestic and international). The math and lab science GPA includes calculus level and higher math and lab science courses.

  • Complete each course sequence (English, mathematics, lab science) with a 3.0 cumulative GPA or higher. Mathematics and/or lab science courses that do not satisfy Georgia Tech Dual Degree course requirements or engineering degree requirements are not included within GPA calculations.

  • There is a “no grade forgiveness policy” as part of the transfer application review. Repeat course grades where a “C” grade or higher has been earned are not included within GPA calculations. Repeat course grades due to withdrawal or failing grades are included within GPA calculations.

  • No more than two Georgia Tech Dual Degree mathematics or lab science course requirements may be in progress at the document deadline (spring and summer term applicants only).
