Course Registration

Registering for courses is done via the OSCAR system

Once you enter OSCAR: you will also see the Schedule of Classes.

When do I register? Registration is done based on your Time Ticket. For current students,  you will receive your time tickets on April 11 for Phase 1.  New students will receive their time tickets on Aug. 8 and will register during Phase 2. Please check your Georgia Tech email for all time tickets and registration updates. 

What do I do if a course is full? Waitlists will be utilized and Overload requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Students must also have the permission of the instructor of the course

What if I need a permit? Request a permit.  Note: If you are a non Public-Policy Major , your permit requests will be processed during Phase 2 of registration which begins August 12, 2024.  If you are a current undergrad Public Policy student who wants to take a graduate course, you must email Mr. Anderson to get a department-level permit first and then you must contact the Registrar's office to receive the level permit.   Undergraduate students will become graduate students in the Fall, can submit for a level permit or wait until their status changes to graduate student and then register as normal
