Georgia Tech changed from the quarter to the semester system in August of 1999. There are three terms offered each calendar year: Fall, Spring, and an abbreviated Summer Term.
Course credit hours are represented by a numbering system where the first digit represents lecture hours, the second represents lab hours, and the third is credit hours. (Example: a 3-0-3 course is 3 hours of lecture, zero lab hours, 3 hours credit.)
Fall and Spring Terms:
In addition to the Fall and Spring Terms, Georgia Tech offers an abbreviated Summer Term. The summer class periods are adjusted to accommodate the 750 minutes of class time required to equal 1 semester credit hour.
* A minimum of 12 hours is required to be considered a full time student for all terms, including summer.
Quarter to Semester Hours Conversion:
The conversion is 2/3.
