Undergraduate Admissions Overview

We are excited that you are thinking about joining us at the School of Public Policy. High school students and transfer students seeking admission to the undergraduate program in Public Policy must first apply through the Georgia Tech Office of Admissions. At Georgia Tech, all admissions decisions are made by the Institute.

Current Georgia Tech students that wish to change their major should visit the Public Policy Academic Advisor.

Former Georgia Tech students that have been academically dismissed or have been out of school for two or more terms must apply for readmission.
