Permits and Overloads

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.

Waitlists

Refer to the Permit/Overload Deparmental Contacts list for procedures regarding specific academic units.

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 comments@registrar.gatech.edu, or in Room 104 of the Tech Tower. The email should include the student’s full name, gtID#, and the course and CRN for which they are trying to register. Once the Registrar’s Office has issued the LEVEL permit, Registrar staff will instruct the student to register for the course. For information about using the credit toward a degree please, see the Graduate Course Option section of the catalog.

Catalog: Undergraduate Students Taking Graduate Courses  

Level Restrictions for Graduate Students

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.
