Georgia Tech has authorized Parchment Exchange to act as its agent for all replacement diploma requests. Jostens is Georgia Tech’s authorized diploma printing company.

Student Chosen/Preferred Name

The Student Chosen/Preferred Name option is now available.

Georgia Tech recognizes that many of its students use a first name, and possibly a middle name or initial, other than their legal name. As long as the use of a chosen/preferred name is not for the purpose of misrepresentation, the Institute acknowledges that a chosen/preferred name should be used whenever possible in the course of conducting daily business and in the educational process.

Level Restrictions

Level Restrictions for Undergraduate Students

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

Permit/Overload Information

Permits and overloads are issued by the departments teaching the course. Some departments are using the on-line permit/overload request system on OSCAR. To apply for a permit or overload on-line, see the directions below. If the department is not listed on the on-line system, they may be using the waitlist function. Below, there is a link to instructions for identifying course sections that offer a waitlist option. If the department or course is not listed, then contact the department directly.

Maximum Number of Credit Hours when Registering

Requests for schedule overloads must be recommended by the student's major school and approved by the Institute Undergraduate Curriculum Committee, by the petition process. Students who are enrolling at other institutions during the Summer term are expected to abide by this rule and petition for exceptions as needed. It is expected that a student's total enrolled hours for Summer would not exceed 16, without permission, regardless of whether the student is enrolled at Tech only or in a combination of hours at Tech and another institution.

Transient Students

Students may choose to be a transient student if the school is not an ARCHE participating institution, or if they only wish to be registered at the visiting institution. ARCHE cross-registration is not the same process for cross-enrollment as being a regular transient student. Credit earned as a transient student is not considered resident credit, and all tuition and fees are paid directly to the visiting institution.
