The campus saw a rise in applicants interested in liberal arts, design and sciences.
“Recruiting in these areas is an Institute priority, and those priorities are starting to come through in our applications,” said Rick Clark, director of undergraduate admission. “We’re pleased to see these students are being attracted to apply to Georgia Tech.”
According to Georgia Tech:
Admitted students represent 92 counties and 325 high schools in Georgia.
As required, Georgia Tech automatically accepts every valedictorian and salutatorian who applies from any Georgia high school.
The early action admit pool is made up of 42% women.
Applications are up in all six of Georgia Tech's colleges, but this year brought particularly large increases in liberal arts (29%), design (23%), and sciences (22%).
Some of those admitted in early action received admission offers through one of Georgia Tech's transfer pathway programs, the newest of which is the Talent Initiative Transfer Pathway for Pell-eligible students. Others were offered admission beginning this summer — around 20% of first-year Tech students begin their college careers during the summer term.
Regular decision applicants, and those who were deferred during early action, will receive their admission decisions Saturday, March 14.
