Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

Graduate Students

  • A minimum of 12 hours is considered full time for all terms, including summer.
  • Courses cannot be added to or deleted from a student's schedule after the last day of registration.
    In addition, the number of hours for which a student is registered, or the grading basis cannot be changed after the last day of registration.
  • Students are responsible for all changes to their schedule. Only the student has access to add/delete or change a class on their schedule. Academic departments and administrative offices do not have access to student schedules.
  • Once a department has issued a permit or overload, it is the student's responsibility to register for the course. Academic departments can only grant permission, they can not add courses to student schedules.
  • GTAs, GSAs, or GRAs, must register for at least 12 hours of letter grade and/or pass/fail courses. Failure to do so can cause the loss of funding. Contact the Graduate Studies office for information or exceptions. gradstudies@gatech.edu
  • Graduate students must register for a minimum of 3 hours each term. Contact the Graduate Studies office for information or exceptions. gradstudies@gatech.edu
  • Be sure to change the number of hours on variable hour courses. Thesis courses, and variable hour courses always default to “1” hour when added to a student's schedule. This needs to be changed to the number of hours the student wishes to take, and the results VERIFIED.

    Changing the number of hours or the grade mode

    • Log into Buzzport
    • On the Home tab locate the "REGISTRATION AND STUDENT SERVICES" channel
    • Select the "Registration - OSCAR" link
    • Select "Student Services & Financial Aid"
    • Select "Registration"
    • Select "Add/Drop Classes"
    • Select "Term"
    • Select "Change Course Options" at the bottom of screen
  • Graduate students who wish to take a 1000 or 2000 level course must obtain a permit from the department teaching the course. The student must have the department of instruction enter a permit on their account, and then come to the Registrar’s Office in room 104 of the Tech Tower to have the course added to their schedule. Institute policy allows graduate students to take a 1000 or 2000 level course on a pass/fail or audit basis only.
  • Each student should print and keep a copy of their schedule.
