By enrolling in the RETP, students can attend college close to home, which can help with tuition and ease the adjustment to college life. In addition, classes at the RETP institutions are small, so students will have more individual attention and interaction with professors. For the first two years in the RETP program, students attend one of the participating institutions, where they take all of the mathematics and science and many of the engineering courses required in the first two years of the Georgia Tech engineering curricula. Upon successful completion of the RETP requirements at the RETP institution, students are admitted to Georgia Tech to work toward completion of a Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree. RETP students enjoy many of the advantages of Tech students: they have equal access to engineering majors at Tech, they can participate in the co-op program, and they are invited to the Tech campus once a year for campus tours, information sessions, and meetings with advisors in their engineering majors.
