Georgia Tech Admission Announces Decisions
Georgia Tech's incoming undergraduates receive a RAT cap during Convocation.
This year, 52,354 students applied to become part of the 2023 first-year class at Georgia Tech. The overall admit rate was 36% for Georgia residents and 12% for non-residents.
Overall, admitted students hail from 103 countries, all 50 states plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, 125 Georgia counties, and 3,250 high schools. The admitted class is comprised of 10% first-generation college students (neither parent graduated from college), and 55% are men and 45% are women.
“Our goal is to enroll students who will not only thrive on campus, but also help Tech fulfill its mission to develop leaders who advance technology and improve the human condition,” said Rick Clark, assistant vice provost and executive director of Undergraduate Admission. “The students we have offered admission to this year are incredibly talented academically and have had a significant impact and influence on their high schools and local communities.”
Expanding access, growing undergraduate enrollment, and creating more options for students are key pieces of the Institute's strategic plan. To achieve those goals, Tech plans to enroll a first-year class of approximately 3,750 students, which is about 100 more than last year and will represent a record high for the Institute. Also, 500 of the first-year students will begin on the Atlanta campus this summer, and 100 students will begin either at GT-Europe or in Oxford, England.
“Unlike many of our peer institutions nationally, we are intentionally increasing enrollment,” Clark said. “In fact, between first-year, transfer, and dual enrollment students, Tech will enroll more than 6,000 new undergraduates in 2023.”
In the weeks ahead, the Office of Undergraduate Admission will host a variety of programs on campus for admitted students, as well as customized tours and information sessions. Currently, 1,800 students have committed to attend Tech, but admitted students have until May 1 to make their deposit.
“Recruitment and enrollment are a community effort,” Clark added. “I’m deeply thankful that we have engaged campus partners who are committed to helping us achieve our goals and bring in the best new class of Yellow Jackets possible.”
