Transfer Programs

Dual Degree Program

Under the Dual Degree Program, students attend the participating Dual Degree school for three years and then come to Georgia Tech for approximately two years. Students participating in the Dual Degree Program may seek a degree from any undergraduate degree-granting program in the College of Engineering. Upon completion of the program, the student receives a bachelor's degree from the first school and a bachelor's degree in one of the engineering disciplines at Georgia Tech.

Participating in the Dual Degree Program are many of the schools in the University System of Georgia, including Morehouse College, Spelman College, Clark Atlanta University, and other historically black colleges and universities (HBCU) and predominantly women's colleges in the southeast. For additional information on either of these programs, contact the College of Engineering at Georgia Tech or the Regents' Engineering Transfer Program (RETP) or Dual Degree coordinator at a participating RETP or Dual Degree institution.

Regents' Engineering Transfer Program

The Regents' Engineering Transfer Program (RETP) is a cooperative program between Georgia Tech and colleges in the University System of Georgia.

For the first two years, students in this program attend one of the participating institutions, where they take all of the mathematics and science and many of the engineering courses required in the first two years of the Georgia Tech engineering curricula. Upon successful completion of the RETP requirements at the RETP institution, students are admitted to Georgia Tech to work toward completion of a Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree.

By enrolling in RETP, students may attend a college close to home, thereby decreasing the cost of their education and easing the adjustment to college life. At the same time, RETP students enjoy many of the advantages of Tech students: they have equal access to engineering majors at Tech, they can participate in the co-op program, and they are invited to the Tech campus once a year for campus tours, information sessions, and meetings with advisors in their engineering majors.
