Dual Degree Options

Through an agreement with Clayton State and the Georgia Institute of Technology, students may complete a specified three-year program of study at CSU, and then attend Georgia Institute of Technology for approximately two years. After completion of the engineering program at Georgia Institute of Technology, the student will receive two degrees:

a Bachelor of Science from Clayton State in:

  • Computer Science,
  • Mathematics,
  • Chemistry or
  • Integrative Studies

and a Bachelor of Science from Georgia Tech in Engineering (restricted to Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering for the Chemistry Dual Degree option).

In order to transfer to Georgia Tech, students must:

  • Obtain an overall GPA of at least 3.3 (all attempts at all courses).
  • Obtain a math/science GPA of at least 3.3 (all natural science courses and all MATH 1501 Calculus I and higher).
  • Be enrolled at Clayton State for at least 2 semesters immediately preceding transfer to GT, i.e. Fall/Spring or Spring/Summer for a Fall GT enrollment
  • Admission to Georgia Tech is not guaranteed

Additional Program-Specific Graduation requirements for all Dual Degree Programs:

All Dual Degree students must earn a grade of C or better (or K) in the following courses:

  • All MATH courses applied towards the degree
  • All science courses (i.e., courses with BIOL, CHEM, or PHYS prefixes) applied towards the degree
  • All CSCI courses applied towards the degree
  • ENGL 1101 & 1101; CRIT 1101

A maximum of one grade of D is allowed to be applied towards the degree.

The remainder of the 120-hour program of study will consist of upper division engineering courses, which are included in the program of study for the engineering degree program at Georgia Tech. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure they take the correct science and mathematics sequence – as they differ throughout the engineering disciplines. Students are strongly encouraged to speak with an advisor before entering this program of study.
