Tech students practice social distancing while studying at The Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design.
Institute-Wide Operations Status
UPDATED OCTOBER 30, 2020: The Georgia Tech community has accomplished a remarkable feat in adapting to a completely new campus and life experience this semester. To keep transmission rates low, we must stay vigilant, continue to use face coverings and distancing practices on campus, and get tested once per week.
Meanwhile, many necessary efforts continue around campus, including:
Enhanced cleaning and disinfection measures.
Six-foot spacing configurations in classrooms, labs, and office spaces.
Modified delivery of services for campus support, housing, and dining.
Ongoing risk assessments and analyses.
Detailed surveillance testing, contact tracing, and quarantine protocols.
UPDATED OCTOBER 30, 2020: Fall courses continue via residential, hybrid, and remote modes. Final instructional days for fall semester will be Monday, Nov. 23 and Tues. Nov. 24, 2020. Reading days and final assessments will be delivered remotely from Monday, Nov. 30 though Tuesday, Dec. 8, 2020.
For spring, classes will continue to be offered in one of three modes — residential, hybrid, and remote — and we believe we can safely increase on-campus presence and instruction, to include regular, prescheduled in-person meetings in hybrid courses.
While we will increase personal engagement for our students, we will also maintain the necessary flexibility to balance health and safety with the pedagogical needs of each course.
UPDATED AUGUST 24, 2020: The Georgia Tech community has returned to in-person learning, research, and campus activities.
Now that the fall semester has begun, it is important that we develop and practice the habits that will keep us safe and allow us to engage in the activities we value on campus. One of the most important new habits is making sure that all of us get tested once per week. This will help reduce the spread of Covid-19 on campus and allow us to continue to offer in-person teaching and learning.
UPDATED OCTOBER 30, 2020: Georgia Tech has resumed some research activities for the purpose of fulfilling research grants and contracts, and to ensure student degree progress. Research personnel density remains at 50%. Further increases to research activities will be decided as conditions and support infrastructure permits.
We advise all researchers to continue completing duties off-site that do not require campus access. Research at field sites will be allowed to resume depending on several factors, including travel restrictions, stay-at-home directives, and density and physical distancing requirements.
UPDATED OCTOBER 30, 2020: The Georgia Tech community has accomplished a remarkable feat in adapting to a completely new campus and life experience over the semester. To keep transmission rates low, we must stay vigilant, continue to use face coverings and distancing practices on campus, and get tested once per week.
UPDATED OCTOBER 30, 2020: Current and newly admitted international students continue to face various issues related to travel restrictions or visa matters. The Office of International Education maintains several online resources, including virtual 1:1 advising sessions and FAQs, to assist in planning and decision-making and should be consulted with any detailed questions about a student’s specific immigration or visa situation.
