Enhancing Undergraduate Education at Georgia Tech
Cory Hopkins, Communications Program Manager, Office of Undergraduate Education
The Office of Undergraduate Education (OUE) challenges students to become accomplished learners who are able to make meaningful connections among work, study, and community. We connect success, during and after college. Whether your student needs help with a challenging course, wants to identify an undergraduate research opportunity, or plans to find a co-op or internship position, OUE can help. Below you’ll find a brief overview of everything we offer. And even though we’ve tried to include everything you need to know, the best way to stay connected with OUE and all our programs is to follow us on Twitter,Facebook, or Instagram at @GTOUE.
Academic Advising & Transition
All entering students are assigned an academic advisor depending on their declared major at Georgia Tech. Undecided students are assigned an academic advisor within their declared college. Advisors are responsible for helping students plan an academic program suited to their interests, abilities, and career goals that will meet the requirements of their major and graduation. Frequent use of student-advisor contact is a proven factor in student success. Undergraduate Advising & Transition Programs includes exploratory advising, academic coaching, academic intervention programs and services for students who are experiencing academic difficulty (such as GT2100), and other student success programs and workshops. It also includes Georgia Tech’s first year and transfer-year transition courses, GT1000 and GT2000, as well as Project One. For more information, visit advising.gatech.edu.
Academic Engagement Programs provides programs and services that foster rigorous academic activities, integrate and enhance traditional curricular activities, and create meaningful opportunities for student-faculty engagement. The Center is the hub for several programs and activities, including Summer Session Initiatives, the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program, student innovation programs such as The InVenture Prize, Living Learning Communities, and more.

C2D2 is Georgia Tech’s central office for assisting students with all aspects of career planning and job search. Our mission is to provide leading-edge career education so that all Georgia Tech students are positioned to launch, navigate, and sustain satisfying and successful careers that make a meaningful contribution to society. In C2D2, we define “career” broadly, reflecting the diverse interests and goals of Georgia Tech students. It’s never too early for your daughter or son to participate in the programs of the Center for Career Discovery and Development. We encourage them to seek the advice of our staff of experienced career counselors as well as co-op and internship advisors. For more information, visit career.gatech.eduor call 404.894.2550.
The Honors Program combines the challenging academic standards of one of the world's finest research universities with the closer student-faculty connections one might expect to find at smaller colleges. Its mission is to create a lively environment where students and faculty members learn from one another through a common commitment to intellectual inquiry, careful analysis, and energetic exchange of ideas.
Pre-Graduate and Pre-Professional Advising
Pre-Graduate and Pre-Professional (PGPP) Advising works with students who choose to attend professional or graduate school or pursue prestigious fellowships. We support students and alumni considering careers in academia, health, law, teaching, and other fields. Our programs and advisors encourage students to reflect on their knowledge, skills, experience, and strengths to determine the best path forward as they strive to achieve their immediate and long-term goals. For students interested in professional school, our advisors ensure that students are prepared for the competitive admissions process to medical school, law school, and other programs.

Serve-Learn-Sustain’s (SLS) central tenet is service learning and community engagement — educating students through classroom, co-curricular, and real-world learning, both on campus and off, to contribute to the task of “creating sustainable communities.” Students in any major can now work on community-focused projects incorporated into classroom learning. SLS has facilitated, and will continue to develop, key partnerships with community organizations, nonprofits, government organizations, and industry partners that focus on joint learning, research, and action. The Serve-Learn-Sustain program also provides access to related co-ops, internships, research opportunities, and study abroad programs. The SLS program is administered by the Center for Serve-Learn-Sustain, located in Clough Undergraduate Learning Commons.
