The move from high school to college is a major transition – for parents as well as students. Having assisted with this transition for thousands of families, the Admission Office staff can answer many of the questions you're likely to have.
We also strongly encourage you to check out our Georgia Tech Parents Program, where you can find a wealth of information regarding supporting your college student, involvement opportunities, and resources to help make the college transition as smooth as possible. The Parents Program Facebook page is also a great place to post questions and meet other parents who are also going through the college decision process.

Attending college in an urban environment such as Atlanta can be an adjustment and concern for some students and families. Georgia Tech's police force works diligently to ensure the safety and wellness of all Georgia Tech community members. To that end, we have a highly trained group of officers, escorts available 24 hours a day, blue light emergency phones throughout campus, and an emergency alert system for students and parents.
Additionally, while their primary focus is keeping the campus secure, Georgia Tech's Police Department also works closely with the Atlanta Police Department to help secure the areas and neighborhoods adjacent to campus where many students live.
