Graduate Registration Information

Major restrictions will remain in place for Summer 2019 until noon on Monday, April 8. 

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_0.pdf

All permit forms (except MSCS Project forms and MS Thesis forms) should be submitted to the forms box in the advising waiting area of the College of Computing, first floor. MSCS Project forms and MS Thesis forms should be submitted to your MSCS advisor via email (Last Names A-L to Judy; Last Names M-Z to Amy).

Fall 2019 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 NOON on Monday, March 25. 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.

If for any reason you are not issued a permit during this process, this does not mean you cannot take the course.  You can continue to try to register for the course during Phase II registration.

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 17 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.

A:  See above for information about when major restrictions will be removed.

 

Q: I am a graduate student.  Can I take the undergraduate version of a course that is cross-listed with both undergrad and grad sections?

Q: When are waitlists removed from classes?

 A. Yes. Students may be move up on waitlists for classes that they must take to satisfy an undergraduate thread requirement, an MS specialization core or elective class, or to prepare for the PhD qualifying exam.

 

Q.  Can I register for a CoC graduate-level course if I didn't receive a permit?

A.  If you were not issued a permit for Phase I, this does NOT mean you cannot take the course.  You can continue to try to register for your courses during Phase II registration.
