Summer Programs Offer Greater Variety of Courses
Due to popular demand, Georgia Tech will provide undergraduate students more course offerings for summer term 2009 enrollment. According to Dr. Anderson Smith, senior vice provost for Academic Affairs, "This is a coordinated effort among the colleges at Georgia Tech to provide the assortment of courses students need to complete their degree in a timely fashion."
Currently enrolled Tech students benefit from the guaranteed tuition rate policy which effectively locks-in tuition rates for four consecutive years. "This enhanced offering for summer session will provide students with better access to classes that are sometimes difficult to register for and help students complete more credit hours while their tuition is locked-in," Smith said. "Once a student is enrolled past the 4th year, their tuition can increase substantially - 40 percent or higher. This is a real opportunity for students to leverage summer enrollment as a means to manage their course-load under the current tuition policy."
Phase I or early registration for summer 2009 begins March 25 and ends on April 5, 2009. Students may find summer course offerings listed on Georgia Tech's OSCAR system.
