  2. The basic policy regarding the acceptance of the courses by transfer is to allow credit for courses completed with satisfactory grades (C or better) in other accredited colleges provided the courses correspond in time and content to courses offered at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Georgia Tech assumes responsibility for the academic quality of any work or credit recorded on the institution's transcript. Transfer credits will be accepted from newly-formed institutions of the University System of Georgia prior to accreditation.
  3. Georgia Tech will NOT award credit for courses successfully completed at another institution which were previously taken at Georgia Tech.
  4. A petition to the faculty must be approved to use course work more than ten years old.
  5. Georgia Tech reserves the right to test the proficiency of any student in course work transferred from other institutions and to disallow credit in courses in which the student cannot demonstrate acceptable proficiency.

Transfer Credit for Online Courses

  1. Currently, on-line versions of all Lab Science courses, International Affairs, Psychology, Economics and courses equivalent to HIST 2111 and HIST 2112 are not eligible for transfer credit consideration. In most cases mathematics are not eligible for consideration unless sufficient documentation is provided to show the course exams are proctored. If you are interested in taking the on-line versions of mathematics courses that meet this requirement, or have questions regarding this policy, please contact the Registrar's Office at comments@registrar.gatech.edu for more information.

Information - Transfer Credit:

  1. Georgia Tech does not offer correspondence courses and does not grant credit for correspondence courses taken at other institutions. Academic units reserve the right to take such things as delivery method into consideration. For example, on-line courses and computer-instructed courses may not be accepted by some academic units for credit.
  2. Georgia Tech does not grant credit for the College Level General Educational Development Tests, CLEP, USAFI courses, or courses completed at any United States armed services, with the exception of the military academies and schools with full accreditation by a regional accrediting body.
  3. Georgia Tech does not grant credit for professional certificate programs.
  4. The following items are among other circumstances in which non-resident credit is NOT granted:

    • Courses previously completed at Georgia Tech.
    • College courses taken to meet freshman admissions requirements.
    • Remedial courses.
    • Courses basically secondary school or pre-college level.
    • Courses with essentially non-academic content.
    • Vocational courses.
    • Learning support courses.
  5. Non-resident credit is not computed as a part of the student's grade point average at Georgia Tech. Georgia Tech transfers credits, not grades. Grades for courses completed at other institutions are not calculated into the Tech GPA.
