How to Register

There are two sets of course numbers used campus-wide for undergraduate research: those for course credit and those for pay. Courses are named in the following format (with course number preceded by the name of school for which you will be doing research, e.g., BIOL 4699, ME 2698):

  • 2699: Research experience for course credit for freshman and sophomore students.
  • 4699: Research experience for course credit for junior and senior students.
  • 2698: Research experience for pay for freshman and sophomore students.
  • 4698: Research experience for pay for junior and senior students.

Students may not receive pay and course credit for the same research project during the same semester. Students must obtain permits to register for all four courses. If you are looking to register for undergraduate research, please visit the links below for registration instructions specific to each school at Georgia Tech. If you don’t see your school or college below or if you have any questions regarding registration steps, contact your academic advisor for detailed instructions on how to register for undergraduate research.
