This course evaluation request website is intended for current undergraduate Georgia Tech students and applicants that need courses evaluated for credit, initial transfer, or admissibility.
Graduate students and graduate-level applicants do not use this site. Instead, consult the "Graduate Policies and Regulations" page of the Catalog and your Academic Advisor for guidance.
Graduate Policies and Regulations
Before submitting a request for an evaluation, students must review the Transfer Equivalency Table. If your courses are listed with a Georgia Tech equivalent, there is no need to request a new course evaluation.
Transfer Credit Equivalency Tables
Before logging into the transfer credit evaluation site and requesting a transfer course review you will need to have a course syllabus and/or description in electronic format for each course being evaluated. The course syllabus and description are the basis of your evaluation. Georgia Tech cannot process your request without them.
Acceptable file formats for documents are:
- doc, docx
- xls, xlsx
- jpg, png, tif
Each syllabus must meet the following criteria to receive an evaluation:
- Must be from the term in which you enrolled in the course
- Includes the name of the professor and contact information.
- Includes textbook information (name of textbook, author, edition, year)
- Includes grading scale
- Includes a detailed schedule of weekly topics covered in the course; this is especially important for Computer Science, Engineering, Math, and Lab Science courses.
Some courses may require additional information:
- English 1101/1102 - Students submitting evaluation requests for either course must submit a 15 to 20 page writing assignment (ENGL 1101) or a 20 to 30 page writing assignment (ENGL 1102). The paper must be an assignment from the course (e.g. Literacy Analysis, Research Paper, Compare/Contrast Paper, Reflection Paper, etc.)
- Lab Science Courses - Students must submit a lab syllabus if the lab and lecture sections are not combined in a single syllabus. If the two sections are in one syllabus, you only need to upload the single document.
After you submit your request, the Registrar's Office will review the submission to determine if the documentation is sufficient for review by the academic department. If the documentation is insufficient, the Registrar's Office will return the request to you with a note indicating what is lacking in your original request and next steps for a successful submission.
With sufficient documentation, the Registrar's Office will advance the request to the academic department for review. Faculty reviewing your request on behalf of the academic department may also return the evaluation to you if additional information is required.
You may follow the progression of your request in the transfer credit evaluation site. Your request will be in one of the following five status phases:
- Registrar 1 - your request is pending initial review by the Registrar's Office
- Department - the Registrar's Office has sent your request to the academic department for review; please allow 2-4 weeks for this phase
- Registrar 2 - the academic department has reviewed your request and the Registrar's Office is processing; please allow 2-4 weeks for this phase
- Student - the Registrar's Office or academic department has returned the request to you to request additional information; you should review the notes and submit the updated request; you must click Submit to return the request to the Registrar's Office for additional review (the request will remain in Student status if you do not click Submit)
- Complete - the evaluation process is complete. Students will receive an email when the evaluation is in the complete phase.
After your evaluation is moved to Complete status, you may log in to the transfer credit equivalency site and view the final equivalency from the department. You will see one of three outcomes:
- Credit awarded (Policy) - the department awarded you the listed credit and the course will appear on the transfer equivalency table for future students
- Credit awarded (Not Policy) - the department awarded you credit under special circumstances on a one-time basis and the course will not be added to the transfer equivalency table
- ET NOGT - the department determined that the course is not equivalent to any course at Georgia Tech and cannot award credit
About Transfer Credit
- 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.
- 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.
- Georgia Tech does not grant credit for professional certificate programs.
- 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.
- Non-resident credit is not computed as a part of the student's grade point average at Georgia Tech.
