Students who wish to select technical elective courses not on the list must seek approval from the faculty advisor and the associate chair for graduate studies. To request a substitution, please use the Graduate Course Replacement form.
Free Electives need not be selected from approved technical elective lists, although many students will select additional such courses. A free elective course can be chosen among any of Georgia Tech’s colleges, and should be chosen to complement your graduate study program. If a chosen free elective does not clearly align with your degree program, then you may be asked to provide a written explanation identifying how the course complements your study.
