Non-US Citizens and Non-Georgia Tech Students

Non U.S. citizens are welcome to apply for the East Asia program. Students enrolled at universities and colleges other than Georgia Tech are also welcome to apply for the program, although it will be necessary for them to enroll as a “transient” student at Georgia Tech --- a process separate from the process of applying for the East Asia program. In other words, non-Georgia Tech students will need to apply for the East Asia program, and, separately, apply for admission to Georgia Tech as a "transient" student. The latter is not a cumbersome process. For the procedure for registering as a transient student, please see the "Procedures and Rules" page on this website.

Depending on their nationality, non-U.S. students may need to procure visas unnecessary for U.S. citizens (e.g. for Hong Kong, South Korea, and Taiwan).

Non Atlanta-area students should also understand that they will need to fly, if at all possible, to Atlanta for several days intense days of class on the Georgia Tech campus starting on Saturday, 5 May, prior to the beginning of the East Asian component of the program.  The program director will assist these non-Atlanta-area students find very reasonable accommodation, but such students should understand that they will incur some additional expenses.
