Students who are enrolled at Georgia Tech may not receive credit for courses completed at another institution during the same academic term, unless prior permission has been obtained for cross enrollment or concurrent registration, as described in this section.
With the approval of the student's major school, a student may schedule courses at any one of the colleges or universities comprising the Atlanta Regional Consortium for Higher Education (ARCHE), if such courses are not available in a particular term at Georgia Tech. A list of participating institutions is available from the Office of the Registrar.
Cross enrollment also is permitted among institutions participating in the Georgia Tech Regional Engineering Program (GTREP) and selected institutions in the Regents' Engineering Transfer Program (RETP).
All cross enrollment registration activities are performed at the student's home institution.
For institutions not participating in cross enrollment, a student must apply in advance for permission to be concurrently registered at both Georgia Tech and the other institution, except during the Summer.
Cross enrollment and concurrent registration are available only to degree-seeking juniors, seniors, and graduating students, except during the Summer Session, when concurrent registration is available to all degree-seeking students. Ordinarily students will not be allowed to participate during their first academic term at Georgia Tech, nor will students be allowed to cross enroll for more than two courses per academic term. Special rules apply to students participating in the RETP programs. International Plan students may cross enroll or register concurrently for a language course(s) not offered at Georgia Tech as early as the second semester of their first year of enrollment. Special permission to do this will be granted to accepted International Plan students only. Forms and procedures are available from the Office of the Registrar. Any student seeking an exception to these eligibility requirements should contact the Office of the Registrar.
To participate in cross enrollment or concurrent registration, a student must be in good standing during the term when the application is processed.
During the term of cross enrollment or concurrent registration, the student must enroll in three or more credit hours at Georgia Tech and be in good standing. The total academic load carried at all institutions combined may not exceed the number of credit hours for which the student would be allowed to register at Georgia Tech.
Any cross enrollment and concurrent registration course must be completed with a grade of "C" or better in order to receive credit for the course. Credits earned under cross enrollment will be treated as transfer credit but will count as in-residence credit toward a degree. Credits earned under concurrent registration will be treated as transfer credit and will not count as in-residence credit toward a degree. Grades received in cross enrollment or concurrent registration courses will not be included in the calculation of the grade-point average. No credit will be awarded until an official transcript from the participating institution is received by the Office of the Registrar.
