Academic Grievance Policy

The Office of the Provost is committed to assisting students who have questions, concerns, or grievances regarding the academic policies and regulations outlined in the Georgia Tech Catalog.

The purpose of this site is to serve as a reference for many of the questions students have. Students should first discuss any concerns with the relevant faculty member; if it is not possible to come to resolution with the faculty member, students may then report the matter to the appropriate administrator (Chair or Associate Chair or Director of Studies) of the department of instruction or report it here: 

In general, the Catalog governs all academic policies at Georgia Tech.  You may consult this page for general regulations.

  • Calendar
  • Attendance
  • Examinations
  • Grades
  • Withdrawal and Readmission
  • Academic Honor Code
  • Student Code of Conduct
  • Faculty-Student Expectations
