LEVEL RESTRICTION
(Undergrad Students)
Undergraduate Students Who Wish to take a Graduate Level Course
An undergraduate student may take a graduate level course with the permission of the department teaching the course, a minimum GPA of 2.7, and be classified as a senior. The student must have the department of instruction enter a permit on their account, and then the student should contact the Registrar’s Office to request a LEVEL permit. The Registrar’s Office can be contacted at comments@registrar.gatech.edu, or in room 104 of the Tech Tower. The email should include the student’s full name, gtID#, and the course and CRN for which they are trying to register. Once the Registrar’s Office has issued the LEVEL permit, they will instruct the student to register for the course. For information about using the credit toward a degree please, see the Graduate Course Option section of the catalog.
