Regents' Engineering Transfer Program (RETP)

Georgia Tech offers the opportunity to transfer to Tech through the Regents' Engineering Transfer Program (RETP). Through RETP, students enroll for their first two years of course work at one of the participating Georgia colleges and universities.

During their two years of enrollment at a participating institution, RETP students are able to complete all of the mathematics and science courses, as well as many of the engineering courses, required in the first two years of the Georgia Tech curriculum. Upon successful completion of the RETP requirements at the RETP institution, students are admitted to Georgia Tech and are able to continue their work toward completion of a Bachelor Science in Engineering degree.

For more information on RETP and requirements for admission please visit the College of Engineering RETP website or contact the RETP advisor or coordinator at the partner institution.
