Hello OMSCS Students,

This is a reminder that the deadline to withdraw from a Spring 2021 course is Wednesday, March 17 at 4:00pm ET.  Once you withdraw from a course, you will have a “W” on your transcript.

Please review the information included in the original email we sent on January 28 (below) for more information about withdrawing from a course and for a list of FAQs.

We will send one final reminder as the March 17 deadline approaches.


 

Foundational Requirement

Please check which of the following scenarios applies to you regarding the completion of your foundational requirement:

1.  For students whose foundational requirement deadline was the end of the Fall 2020 term (or earlier):

 If you were due to complete your foundational requirement by the end of the Fall 2020 term (or earlier), and you have not yet completed it, you will be restricted from registering for any course that is not a foundational course.

**Please note that you will NOT have a hold placed on your account, so there is nothing you need to do regarding this.**

Once you successfully complete your foundational requirement, you will be able to register for non-foundational courses.

2.  If you matriculated Fall 2020, you have until the end of the Summer 2021 term to complete your foundational requirement.

Please note the information included above in Scenario #1, as this most likely will be the same process used for students who matriculated Fall 2020 who will not complete their foundational requirement by the end of the Summer 2021 term.

We will send more information for this group of students during the Fall 2021 term, so there is no need to contact our office before then if you will not be able to complete your requirement by the end of the Summer 2021 term.

3.  If you matriculated Spring 2021, you have until the end of the Fall 2021 term to complete your foundational requirement.

Please note the information included above in Scenario #1, as this most likely will be the same process used for students who matriculated Spring 2021 who will not complete their foundational requirement by the end of the Fall 2021 term.

Please be sure to plan your future course schedule(s) accordingly so that you can meet your foundational requirement by your designated deadline.


If you have advising-related questions after reading this information, please contact oms-advising@cc.gatech.edu from your GT email account and include your full name and your nine-digit GT ID number (90X-XX-XXXX), replacing the first two digits with “xx”.

 

Have a great day!
