Study abroad is a transformative experience, and the Georgia Tech-Lorraine program is no exception! 

Georgia Tech-Lorraine is Georgia Tech's European campus in Metz, France. Georgia Tech is a top engineering school and a thriving internationally-focused university, and Metz is also a hub for technological advancement and research. Each year close to 700 undergraduate and graduate students study at Georgia Tech-Lorraine.

Has your student already been accepted to Georgia Tech-Lorraine? Here is the number one thing you can do to help them prepare:
1. Remind your student to pay attention to and respond to any and all emails from GTL staff in a timely manner! Students who do not respond to emails about subjects such as info on obtaining visas, joining the student Facebook group, answering surveys, etc. will be docked "points" that will give them lower priority for housing at Georgia Tech-Lorraine. If they fail to complete these tasks even after several reminder emails they will be dropped from the program.


Looking for info on how to mail a package to your student, or what to do if they get sick? Scroll down for all the answers!


Spring 2020 Undergraduate PARENTS! - Your student was asked to give permission to add you to our private Parent's Facebook Group for the Spring. This page will provide you with all of the documents that have been shared with students as they prepare to leave for GTL and provides a place for us to share any security updates for GTL and other pertinent information. If you are not a member and would like to join, please ask your student to send an email to catherine.bass@gtl.gatech.edu to give permission to add you to the group. You can click the link above for the Facebook group to request to be added, but you will not be approved until Ms. Bass receives the email. Due to FERPA, we cannot add you without permission from your student.

Summer 2020 Undergraduate PARENTS! - We have setup a Parent's Facebook Group for the Summer semester. To join this group, your student will first need to give us permission to communicate with you by sending an email with the parent's first and last name, to catherine.bass@gtl.gatech.edu. Once you have done this, please use this Parent's Facebook Group for Summer link to officially request that you be added to this group. You request will not be accepted until we receive permission from your student to add you. Please read the paragraph above to see what is ahead.
