                                                      Academic Requirements

                                                      You need the following GPA score:

                                                      Required score: 3

                                                      Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to 3 on a US 4.0 grading scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on a 4.0 scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

                                                      Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

                                                      Preferred qualifications for admitted OMS CS students are an undergraduate degree in computer science or related field (typically mathematics, computer engineering or electrical engineering) from an accredited institution. Applicants who do not meet these criteria will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis; however, work experience will not take the place of an undergraduate degree. The following are required for admission:

                                                      • Proof that you have been awarded a four-year bachelor’s degree (or equivalent as determined by Georgia Tech) from a regionally-accredited institution

                                                      • For international applicants, satisfactory scores on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL)

                                                      Getting a Student Visa
