Admissions Process

HOW TO APPLY TO BECOME A MEMBER OF THE HONORS PROGRAM

For information on how to apply to the Honors Program, please visit the Georgia Tech Living Learning Community Application Process page. Students who have been accepted to Georgia Tech can access their Admission Portal to apply for all Living Learning Communities, including the Honors Program. For information on general university admissions, please visit the Georgia Tech Admissions Website

ENTERING CLASS OF FALL 2021:

After you have been admitted to Georgia Tech, you may apply for admission to the Honors Program. Our selection process is holistic: our goal is to identify students who will benefit from and contribute to our Honors Program Living Learning Community. We give primary consideration to the following:

            (a) Honors Program application essays.

            (b) Information from the Georgia Tech Office of Undergraduate Admission.

The Honors Program fee is $800. Honors Program students will be charged $400 in fall semester and $400 in spring semester of their first year. Our entering class each fall is limited (by the design of our Honors Program residence hall) to a total of 210 students. 

*PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR HP ENTERING CLASS MAY FILL BEFORE THE DEADLINE: We may not be able to confirm your admission to the HP even if you accept our invitation by the deadline. We fill our positions on a first-come, first-served basis until we reach the capacity of the Hefner-Armstrong residence hall, so we cannot guarantee that you will be able to join our entering class even if you accept by the deadline. The sooner you accept our invitation, the more likely we will be able to confirm your admission. If we are unable to confirm your admission, we will place you on the waitlist and we may be able to confirm your admission later (if any previously admitted HP students withdraw).

THE FINE PRINT FOR ACCEPTED HONORS PROGRAM STUDENTS:

Georgia Tech Honors Program Acceptance Agreement

I agree to pay the Georgia Tech Honors Program first-year Program Fee of $800. I understand that this Program Fee will be assessed in fall 2021 ($400) and in spring 2022 ($400) and that my participation in the Georgia Tech Honors Program is contingent on payment of this Program Fee when assessed. I understand that there is no fee for subsequent years of participation in the Honors Program.

I agree to participate in the required Honors Program Retreat beginning Tuesday, August 17 at 4:30 p.m. and all day on Wednesday, August 18.

I agree to live in the first-year Honors Program Residence Hall in fall 2021 and in spring 2022. I understand that I will have the option to continue to live with my fellow Honors Program students in reserved upper-class Honors Program apartments across the street from the first-year Honors Program Residence Hall.

I agree to enroll in at least one Honors Program class in 2021-22. I understand that completion of the Honors Program, so that I earn recognition on my Georgia Tech transcript, will require that I complete a total of 15 credits of Honors Program coursework over the course of my matriculation at Georgia Tech. I understand that I may be required to withdraw from the Honors Program if I do not make satisfactory progress in completing my Honors Program coursework (at least 9 credits) by the time I enter senior status at Georgia Tech, and that I will be reminded of this requirement at the time I enter junior status at Georgia Tech.

I agree to be a good citizen of the Honors Program, Georgia Tech, and the larger community of which we are a part. I understand that this includes taking full advantage of the opportunities offered by Honors Program classes, events, and activities; enjoying and supporting my fellow Honors Program students; building relationships with Honors Program faculty; and getting to know and drawing on the support of the Honors Program staff.
