An eligible transfer applicant must be a high school graduate before the application available period of their application term. A student applying for fall term must be a high school graduate before the fall application opens Jan. 15 to be eligible to apply for transfer admission.

Transfer Credit Hours

Official Transcripts

An official transcript is required from all previous colleges or universities (domestic and international). Applicants who enrolled in a college or university outside the U.S. must submit a foreign credit evaluation in addition to the official college transcript. Georgia Tech is unable to waive or exclude prior college credit or enrollment.

Transfer Credit Requirements

English Proficiency

Proof of English Proficiency is required of all transfer applicants. Students satisfy this requirement by providing an official transcript showing completion of two English Composition courses (totaling six semester credit hours).

English composition courses must be equivalent to English 1101 and English 1102 courses at Georgia Tech. English language proficiency exam scores (TOEFL, IELTS) and English taught abroad as a foreign language do not satisfy the English Proficiency requirement.
