If you would like to take undergraduate level classes (those numbered 1000-5000), whether you want to complete an undergraduate degree or be a non-degree student, you must apply through Undergraduate Admissions.

Transient Student

If you are currently enrolled as graduate student in a college or university and plan to return to your home institution after one semester at Georgia Tech, you may apply for a semester of enrollment at Georgia Tech.
