Summer Online Undergraduate Program

Get ahead with online summer courses!

  • Graduate on time
  • Get into classes that normally fill up
  • Continue your studies during your co-op, internship or summer job

Enrolling in the Summer Online Undergraduate Program course(s) fulfills your enrollment status for summer term. If students enroll in one or more 2015 summer online courses, it will count as an “enrolled term” and will meet the conditions to avoid readmission. The registration process is the same as with any other courses; the only difference is that students will select the section of the course designated as “QUP.”

These online courses are semester-based and operate much like Tech courses taught on campus. The online format is perfect for Georgia Tech students who are working or unable to be on campus this summer.

Summer 2015 Schedule

Proctor Information

Students are responsible for arranging their own proctors for online courses. Students should begin their search for an appropriate proctor as soon as they are interested in registering for a summer course.

What is a Proctor, Why Do I Need One and Who Can Be One?

A proctor is an individual who will administer your exams for your summer classes. It is your responsibility, as a student, to nominate a proctor by the start of the classes.

The proctor will act as an official of Georgia Tech that will monitor you during exam time frames.

The proctor will have full responsibility of your exams and will be the only person able to access the exams. Your proctor will have specific instructions on how to download and upload exams into Georgia Tech’s system. You are NOT allowed to have possession of the exam until your scheduled test date and time. You will NOT keep a copy of the exam.

Georgia Tech asks that when selecting a proctor, students select someone who has the capabilities and resources to administer your exam in an appropriate setting that will allow you total concentration during the exam. This can be library room, a conference room or a classroom.

In order for an individual to become a proctor, he/she will need to meet the following qualifications:

  • Cannot be a parent, sibling, co-worker, parent's co-worker, clergy, neighbor, relative or friend of the student. or friend of family.
  • Can be the student’s manger, supervisor, human resources manager or an educator.
  • Should have scanning, printing and computer capabilities.
  • Must provide a driver’s license (color, scanned, front and back side picture) or a valid passport.
  • Must understand and speak English.

How Many Proctors Should I Have?

It is recommended that you have at least three proctors nominated in the case your main proctor is not able to administer the exam to you. All of your proctor nominees must follow the guidelines mentioned above in order to qualify as a proctor. However, you only need one proctor to take a test.

How Do I Get My Proctor Approved?

Once you have registered for the Summer Online Undergraduate Program, you will receive access to the Proctor Administration Tool (P.A.T.). You will need to nominate your proctor in this system before you begin your classes. The P.A.T. system will ask for information concerning your proctor, such as:

  • Full name
  • Email address
  • Phone number
  • Relationship to you

We will contact your proctor and take them through an approval process. This will take about 15 minutes. After the approval process your proctor will have all the information needed in order to administer your exam. If your proctor nomination is denied, it is your responsibility to find a proctor that meets the proctor qualifications. Nomination of a proctor does not guarantee approval.
