Academic Common Market

Georgia Tech has made the decision to withdraw from the Academic Common Market on the undergraduate level. Undergraduate students who begin enrollment starting in the summer semester of 2011 or later at Georgia Tech will not be eligible for the Academic Common Market.

Although Georgia Tech has discontinued its participation in the Academic Common Market, current students who are still part of the program must maintain the requirements below for continued eligibility:

  • Students must maintain "Good Academic Standing" as defined by Georgia Tech Rules and Regulations
  • Students must maintain full time student status as defined by Georgia Tech Rules and Regulations.
  • Students must maintain satisfactory progress toward the appropriate undergraduate degree.
  • Students must graduate within five calendar years or six calendar years for students participating in the cooperative education program. The calendar will begin with the first term of enrollment at Tech.  Therefore, students who change to an ACM major after they have enrolled at Tech must graduate within five or six years (if participating in the cooperative education program) from the first term of enrollment at Tech.
                       

The appropriate Georgia Tech grade point average (GPA) must be maintained to remain eligible for the ACM waiver. The first check point will be at the end of the student's second semester at Tech. After the first check point, the student's Georgia Tech cumulative grade point average will be reviewed at the end of each subsequent term.  Continuing ACM eligibility will be based on the following:

Completed Hours Required GPA to Maintain Eligibility
0-29 2.8
30-59 2.9
60+ 3.0

Georgia Tech students requesting a change to an ACM major will be evaluated initially based on their Georgia Tech GPA and again at the end of each subsequent term. Continuing ACM eligibility will be based on the above GPA guidelines.
