You’ve already made an excellent choice for your education by choosing to attend one of the nation’s top research universities – why not get even more out of the experience? Get ahead or get up to speed this summer with the first-ever online undergrad courses at Georgia Tech!
Offered in a variety of disciplines, these online courses are designed to give you the flexibility to experience Georgia Tech wherever you are. But you have to hurry – registration for summer semester is open now and courses will fill up fast!
All online courses are semester-based and operate much like a typical Tech course, except delivery will be online. Courses will be taught by Tech faculty and instructors and count toward your degree requirements. At this time, summer online course enrollment is limited to Georgia Tech undergraduate students who want to enroll solely in these online courses.
Why GT Summer Online?
A key provision of the new summer online undergraduate program is that students are responsible for arranging their own proctors for the courses. Students should begin their search for an appropriate proctor as soon as they are interested in a GT online summer course. No approvals take place until after the student registers and submits the online form. To learn more about obtaining a proctor for summer online courses, click here.
