Graduate Registration Information

 

Summer 2018 Registration

Major restrictions will remain in place for Summer 2018 until noon on Monday, April 9.

Forms for various types of permits can be found here: http://www.cc.gatech.edu/academics/degree-programs/masters/forms

If you are a graduate student who wishes to take an undergraduate course, you should complete a request form and return it to the forms box in the advising waiting area of the College of Computing, first floor. The instructor of the course MUST approve. These permits will NOT be issued until the first week of Summer term.

For 1000/2000 level courses, complete this form: http://www.cc.gatech.edu/sites/default/files/images/graduate_student_request_to_take_a_1000-2000_undergraduate_course.pdf

For 3000/4000 level courses, complete this form: http://www.cc.gatech.edu/sites/default/files/images/graduate_student_request_to_take_a_3000-4000_undergraduate_course.pdf

All permit forms (except MSCS Project forms) should be submitted to the forms box in the advising waiting area of the College of Computing, first floor. MSCS Project forms should be submitted to an MSCS advisor.

 

Fall 2018 Phase I Registration

In order to prevent the course hoarding behavior that causes many students not to be able to get into classes during Phase I, and creates great stress for students with later time tickets, we will be using the following procedure for registration:

All CS/CSE graduate courses will be PERMIT RESTRICTED for the ENTIRETY of Phase I registration. 

We sent out a survey link where students can request permits.  This survey link will remain open until 9AM Thursday, March 29.  If you miss the survey deadline, you will not be able to register until Phase II.

PhD students can request up to TWO CS/CSE courses.

MS students can request up to FOUR CS/CSE courses.

The College staff will process the permit requests prior to the opening of the time tickets for graduate students.

The Permit Restrictions will NOT be removed during this phase of registration.

The Major Restrictions will NOT be removed during this phase of registration.

Phase I registration will end on May 18 at 4PM.

We know this is not ideal, but the hoarding behavior of some graduate students, and the unavoidable limitations of the registration system, make these measures necessary.

Students who miss the course survey submission deadline will have to wait until Phase II to register for courses.

Q: When are waitlists removed from classes?
