Undergraduate Academic Advisement
The School of Chemistry and Biochemistry is committed to providing exceptional academic and career advisement to its undergraduate majors. On an individual basis, students meet with advisors throughout the year and at least once a term to discuss issues such as course selection, graduation requirements, undergraduate research, internship, and career opportunities. Undergraduate advisors include: Dr. William Baron (Advisement Coordinator), Dr. David Jenson, Dr. Mary Peek, Dr. Leigh Bottomley, Dr. James (Chad) Morris, Dr. Cianan Russell, and Dr. Carrie Shepler. Advisors may be contacted via a scheduler or individual email. Undergraduates may also contact the Chemistry Advisement Coordinator to determine their advisor. Additional information on academic advisement at Georgia Tech is available: http://www.advising.gatech.edu/
Tutorial/Academic Support Services
A number of FREE tutoring and academic support resources (i.e. stress management workshops, study skill training) are available for students on the Georgia Tech campus.
Progress grades are assigned for all 1000 and 2000 level courses at Georgia Tech. Assigned at approximately the fourth week into the term, these grades provide students with an understanding of their current performance in their coursework. A grade of Satisfactory (i.e. coursework performance at the C level or better)or Unsatisfactory (coursework performance of D or F) is provided by the instructor. These grades are not a part of the student's permanent transcript but should prompt the student to take immediate action to address issues related to poor performance.
A progress advisement meeting is also required for the following chemistry and biochemistry students with unsatisfactory progress grades in any 1000 or 2000 level courses:
* Any freshman with an unsatisfactory progress grade
* Any undergraduate, not in good standing, with 1 or more unsatisfactory progress grade
* Any undergraduate with 2 or more unsatisfactory progress grade
Degree candidates must complete an on-line application for graduation. The institute window opening date for filling an on-line application and deadline can be found in the official calendars. The window for filling a re-application can also be found in the official calendars.
All graduates are required to perform an exit interview 1 week prior to graduation. Please complete the exit interview form [PDF] and schedule an appointment with Dr. Lawrence Bottomley. In addition, degree candidates should complete online post graduation contact form.
