AS in Engineering
The Regents’ Engineering Pathway (RTP) was established in 1986 to expand the availability of engineering education opportunities for Georgians. In its current structure, students complete two or more years of pre engineering courses at participating University System of Georgia (RTP Partner) institutions and then transfer to Georgia Institute of Technology, Georgia Southern University, Kennesaw State University, Mercer University or the University of Georgia to complete a B.S. degree in Engineering (RTP Engineering Institutions).
To encourage and accommodate students who desire to study engineering, but who for various reasons may prefer to attend another college before coming to an RTP Engineering institution, this program offers the opportunity to transfer to an RTP Engineering institution through the Regents’ Engineering Pathway. RTP students enjoy many of the advantages of [engineering program] students: they have equal access to engineering majors at [engineering program], they can participate in the co-op program, and they are invited to the RTP Engineering institution campus once a year for campus tours, information sessions, and meetings with advisors in their engineering majors.
The Regents’ Engineering Pathway (RTP) is a cooperative program between [Engineering Program] and participating RTP Partner institutions within the University System of Georgia:
For the first two years, students in this program attend one of the RTP Partner participating institutions, where they take all of the mathematics and science and many of the engineering courses required in the first two years of the RTP Engineering institution’s engineering curricula. Upon successful completion of the RTP requirements at the RTP Partner institution, students are admitted to the RTP Engineering Institution to work toward completion of a Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree. The curriculum will be specific in the appendices for each Engineering Program.
Admission Requirements RTP Programs
** The information below is a curriculum roadmap. Following this curriculum does not guarantee admissions into Georgia Tech or UGA. In addition the student must meet application and transfer deadlines outlined by the RTP institution.
Georgia Institute of Technology
Upon successful completion of mathematics, science, and engineering course requirements at a participating RTP Partner institution, students may be admitted to Georgia Tech to complete an Engineering bachelor's degree.
- •Students must meet RTP institution and Georgia Tech admission requirements. Georgia Tech admissionsrequirements must be met at the time they submit their transfer application to Georgia Tech.
- •Students must complete 30 credit hours at an RTP partnering institution prior to transferring to Georgia Tech.These 30 hours must include courses that are part of the GT course requirements for transfer and must becompleted post high school graduation.
- •No more than one math or lab science course requirement may be in progress at the document deadline (springand summer term applicants only).
- •Students not enrolled within their RTP institution for more than two consecutive semester must re-enroll for aminimum of one semester prior to their RTP application to Georgia Tech.
Details about the admission requirements for specific majors can be found on the Georgia Tech College of Engineering website.
Georgia Southern University
- . Students must apply for admission to Georgia Southern during the application filing period for the semester in which they wish to transfer. They must satisfy general admission requirements for Georgia Southern, including being in good standing at present institution at the time of transfer.
- . Students must complete a minimum of 30 semester credit hours from the list of approved transfer courses with grades of at least a “C” and a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 in those courses at the time of transfer. The RTP Coordinator at each USG institution will meet with the CEIT’s Director of Transfer and Co-op Programs to agree upon a set of approved courses specific to that institution.
- . Students must have a cumulative GPA, math GPA, science GPA and engineering GPA of at least 2.5 at the time of transfer
- . Other general education core curriculum transfer credits will be accepted based on the transfer rules established by the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia.
Kennesaw State University
Meet transfer student admission requirements, complete the appropriate courses for the major in the curriculum chart with a cumulative grade point average (GPA) and a GPA Math and science courses of 2.7.
Students who transfer into the School of Engineering must have a minimum of 2.5 GPA in all college enrollments. In addition, students must also have a 2.5 GPA or higher in all college mathematics, science, and engineering courses (excluding developmental mathematics courses). They must also be in good standing, that is, not on warning, probation, suspension, or equivalent. The School of Engineering will consider transfer students at any stage in their education after successfully completing Calculus I (MAT191).
Full Admission for Transfer Students to the BSE Degree Program
Transfer students who seek full admission to the School of Engineering BSE degree program must satisfy the following conditions:
1) Have a minimum of a 2.5 GPA in all college enrollments;
2) Have a 2.5 GPA or higher in all degree relevant college math, science and engineering courses attempted. Courses are considered degree relevant only if they could be used (were an appropriate grade earned) to satisfy degree requirements in the specialization or program to which the student is seeking transfer admission. For the purpose of this computation, all attempts or individual courses are included.
3) Have completed courses which transfer as CHM 111, PHY 161, MAT 191, and MAT 192.
4) Be in good standing at their previous school---that is, not on warning, probation, suspension, or the equivalent.
Conditional Admission for Transfer Students to the BSE Degree Program
Students who have completed a course which transfers as MAT 191 and have not yet completed CHM 111, PHY 161, and MAT 192, but who are otherwise eligible, may be granted conditional admission to the School of Engineering BSE degree program.
University of Georgia
Students from participating RTP Partner institutions may be admitted to the University of Georgia to complete any one of the eight Engineering bachelor's degree programs. Students must submit the regular transfer admission application form along with a recommendation form from the RTP Coordinator at their school. The criteria for transfer students include the following:
- Complete 30 college credit hours after high school from an RTP partnering institution (*Please see note below)
- Must meet RTP institution and University of Georgia admission requirements at the time of application
- One completed college course in math and/or laboratory science
- If applicable, must meet High-Demand-Major requirements for the intended degree
*NOTE: ONLY STUDENTS WHO START WITH CALCULUS I CAN TRANSFER AFTER COMPLETING 30 COLLEGE CREDIT HOURS AT ALBANY STATE UNIVERSITY (ASU). THOSE WHO START WITH COLLEGE ALGEBRA WILL NEED TO COMPLETE TWO ADDITIONAL SEMESTERS AT ASU BEFORE TRANSFERRING.
More details about the admission requirements for specific majors can be found on the University of Georgia College of Engineering website.
Advising of RTP Partner students
Academic advisement of RTP Partner students regarding the admissions and RTP requirements will be the responsibility of the regular advising staff at the RTP Partner. Each institution will monitor the academic performance of students enrolling under this agreement before transfer, and identify problems that may interfere with the successful transfer of students to the RTP Engineering institution.
