Will this course count towards my degree?
Visit the GSSO site here: https://gsso.ce.gatech.edu View the page for your specialization. Any courses that are not on those lists must be approved by your faculty advisor. If you don’t know who your faculty advisor is, feel free to ask me.
Courses not applying in DegreeWorks? Many courses do not automatically apply and must be manually applied. We will not likely apply any classes until after registration. Refer to the GSSO website to make sure your courses will apply.
To view the course schedule, register for class and much more, log into Buzzport.
