Regent’s Engineering Transfer Pathway Program

The Regent’s Engineering Transfer Program (RETP) was established in 1986 by the University System of Georgia (USG) to promote engineering education in Georgia. The USG recently revised the RETP and created the program to serve more students in Georgia who have an interest in an engineering degree.

REPP promotes all engineering education programs in the state of Georgia: Georgia Institute of Technology, Georgia Southern University, Kennesaw State University, Mercer University, and the University of Georgia.

Students may apply to one or more engineering education programs after completion of curriculum requirements. Admission and curriculum requirements vary by institution.

Select the appropriate option below for Georgia Tech REPP requirements and contact a REPP partner institution for more information.

Pathway Requirements

To be eligible to receive an offer of transfer admission through the Regent’s Engineering Transfer Pathway Program, you must:

  • Complete REPP institution and Georgia Tech admission requirements.

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

  • 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 science courses including both lecture and laboratory components.

  • Complete at least 30 credit hours of course requirements by engineering major at a REPP institution by the document deadline.

  • Have no more than three REPP course requirements by major in progress at the document deadline (spring and summer term applicants only).

  • Georgia Tech will send each REPP institution a list of their GT applicants each term for REPP verification.

Completion of all requirements does not guarantee admission. Students are eligible for consideration for admission to Georgia Tech as part of our holistic review process.
