7 Graduate Admissions at Georgia Tech  The role of Graduate Admissions  The Graduate Admissions office provides initial “quality control” in the following areas:  monitors academic records of all applicants to ascertain that all degree-seeking students have accredited bachelor’s degrees or equivalent  calculates standardized 4.0 scale GPA for most applicants, approximately 50% of whom attended non- U.S. institutions  monitors authenticity and completeness of academic credentials for admitted applicants 6

8 Graduate Admissions at Georgia Tech  The Process - What is supposed to happen  Applications are sent to either the academic department or to Graduate Admissions.  Whichever office gets the application first keeps a copy of everything they need and immediately sends everything else to the other department.  Graduate Admission performs an evaluation of credentials and sends an "Action Sheet" to the department for their admission decision.  The department sends a letter of offer, pending Institute approval, or letter of decline to the student.  Graduate Admissions enters the decision from the Action Sheet on BANNER (creating for "Admits" the permanent paper and elecronic student records).  Graduate Admissions sends the official Institute letter of Admission to the admitted applicant. 7

9 Graduate Admissions at Georgia Tech  The Process - What actually happens u In many cases, exactly what is described above. u In other cases, academic departments hold on to the applications for a long time, sometimes until after they have received acceptance or decline of their offer of admission. u Departments often make offers before Graduate Admissions has done the credential verification, sometimes before Graduate Admissions has ever received the application.  Why this is a problem : u 1. potential for legal problems u 2. impossibility of making reasonable new student enrollment projections 8
