Transfer Credit Policy for Undergraduate Students

Students may transfer business and management courses taken at another accredited institution if the courses are passed with a "C" or better and are deemed by the Scheller College of Business to be equivalent to a Georgia Tech course. Such courses will be transferred for the same number of credits as the corresponding Scheller College of Business courses, provided they are equal to three or more semester hours of credit. Transfer credits will be accepted from newly-formed institutions of the University System of Georgia prior to accreditation.

Junior- or senior-level courses with three or more semester hours of credit that have no corresponding Scheller College of Business course may transfer as free elective credit in management if they are approved by the Scheller College of Business.

Because of the difference in the intellectual level of various courses, freshman- or sophomore-level courses taken at other institutions may only be transferred for equivalent freshman- or sophomore-level courses offered at Georgia Tech. Before taking courses at other institutions, students should refer to the Georgia Tech transfer credit policies at www.registrar.gatech.edu/students/transfercredit.php. Business students considering taking courses at other institutions should keep in mind Georgia Tech's 36-hour Residency Rule, which states that "no student may be considered a candidate for a degree unless the final 36 credit hours required for the degree are earned in residence at Georgia Tech and approved by the major school."

In addition to its degree programs, the College of Business offers students in good standing an opportunity to broaden their areas of expertise or acquire skills or information beyond their major degree requirements. Students who satisfactorily complete this special program will receive a certificate of recognition. Certificates are only available to degree-seeking Georgia Tech undergraduates. Certificates are awarded upon graduation from a Georgia Tech undergraduate program. For certificate requirements, please see the College of Business Website: www.scheller.gatech.edu
