ENTERING HONORS PROGRAM CLASS OF FALL 2022:
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 transfer 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 essay.
(b) Information from the Georgia Tech Office of Undergraduate Admission.
For transfer students, the Honors Program fee is $500. Transfer Honors Program students will be charged $250 in fall semester and $250 in spring semester. Our entering class of both first year and transfer students is limited by the design of the Honors Program residence hall. Gender-inclusive housing is available for Honors Program students. To read more about gender-inclusive housing at Georgia Tech, visit the Housing website.
For students who have taken honors program or honors college classes at their college or university before coming to Georgia Tech, up to six (6) credit hours of honors classes may be considered for application to the GT Honors Program. To have your prior honors classes reviewed, please email the Honors Program.
*PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR HP ENTERING CLASS MAY FILL BEFORE THE DEADLINE: We fill our first-year and transfer positions on a first-come, first-served basis until we reach the capacity of the residence hall, so we cannot guarantee at this point that you will be able to join our entering class. 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).
