Taking a Course While Co-oping

Most co-ops do not take any classes during their work terms. If you choose to take a Georgia Tech course while working, get the permission of both your co-op advisor and supervisor before registering. Also, note that the class time must not interfere with your 40-hour work week.

If you plan to take a class at another university while co-oping, make sure that your supervisor approves your taking the course and that the class time doesn’t interfere with your work schedule. Also, make sure your credit hours transfer to Georgia Tech through the following steps:

  • Go to https://oscar.gatech.edu/pls/bprod/wwtraneq.P_TranEq_Ltr and review whether or not the course you wish to take at a particular institution has already been evaluated and approved by Georgia Tech as a transfer equivalency.
  • If the course or institution is not listed in OSCAR, see your academic advisor to determine whether or not the credits will transfer.
  • Click on the HELP link at https://oscar.gatech.edu/pls/bprod/wwtraneq.P_TranEq_Ltr to view specific Registrar requirements. For example, you cannot transfer credit for a course that you previously took at Georgia Tech. Other rules apply.
  • If the institution teaching the course requires a “transient letter” from Georgia Tech, obtain one from the Registrar’s Office.
  • Once you’ve completed the course, have the transfer institution to send your official transcript to:
