Mathematics/Engineering Dual Degree Programs

Dual Degree Programs are offered in Mathematics/Engineering with Clemson University and Georgia Tech. Students are provided the opportunity to attend North Georgia for approximately three years before embarking on professional academic work at Georgia Tech or Clemson. After completing the academic requirements of both institutions, the student receives a bachelor's degree in mathematics from North Georgia and a bachelor's degree in a chosen engineering field from the second institution.

Dual Degree Requirements:

  1. Complete the course work at North Georgia as outlined.
  2. Obtain a recommendation from the Dual Degree coordinator at North Georgia.
  3. Maintain a grade point average and achieve the specified test results which would indicate that the student could satisfactorily complete the degree requirements at the second institution.
  4. Complete a program at the second institution-the number of hours of which equals the number of credit hours required of juniors and seniors enrolled in the standard curriculum for the degree being sought.
  5. If the official study program at the second institution includes electives and the candidate has excessive hours at North Georgia, he/she may petition that these excess hours be used as transfer credits. Such transfer credits shall not amount to more than one half of the official study program at the second institution.
