Apply as soon as you arrive on campus to study at GTL in your second semester if you like! Fall transfers can apply for Spring; Spring transfers can apply for Summer or Fall semester. This rule also applies for first-year students admitted to Georgia Tech under the Conditional Transfer Pathway Program.
First-year students are eligible to apply for the Summer Program and will be accepted conditionally until they have a GPA on record from their first semester on campus. In January, your acceptance will either be confirmed, or retracted if your Fall GPA is below 2.5. If your first semester at Georgia Tech is in the Summer, then you are eligible to apply for the Spring semester.

Undergraduate students from other US universities must be US citizens or US Permanent Residents (Green Card holders) to apply to Georgia Tech-Lorraine. Students from other US universities on other types of US visas are NOT permitted to apply.

GEORGIA TECH UNDERGRADUATES
When can I apply?
Each program will be closed as soon as it reaches its maximum capacity. Spring and Fall programs close by the set deadlines due to time constraints dictated by the visa application process. Applicants will be accepted on a rolling basis during the application window, first-come, first-served for these two semesters. It usually takes several weeks before you will hear if you are accepted.
Applications for all semesters are reviewed on a rolling basis until applications close or the program fills. It usually takes several weeks once we start reviewing applications until you receive an acceptance.
The Summer program always sells out, so be sure to apply early so as not to be wait-listed. If you do get wait-listed, know that you are likely to get in, but you may need to wait until later in the Spring before a spot opens up.
And remember, your application fee is non-refundable once you have been accepted to the program. Make sure you understand our cancellation policy before applying! Please plan in advance for all semesters.
