Scope and Contents

The handbooks in Series 1 describe programs and activities available for students, as well as student and academic services and procedures. Although these volumes seem to be geared mainly for undergraduate students, they may also have been distributed to new graduate students. The handbooks in the first two subseries of Series 2 contain similar information to those in Series 1, but the guidance is specifically intended for graduate students at Georgia Tech. Series 2, subseries 3 contains information for graduate research assistants and graduate teaching assistants. The handbooks for students in specific fields, Aerospace Engineering and Electrical Engineering, are found in Series 3. The Series 3 handbooks include more curricular information than those in the other two series.
