The Georgia Tech Career Center is a part of the Georgia Tech Office of Undergraduate Education, created by the integration of the Division of Professional Practice (DoPP) and Career Services.
DoPP includes the cooperative education (Co-op) and internship programs in which students can participate while attending Georgia Tech, and Career Services gives them the resources they need to support their searches for full-time employment after graduation, such as help with the exploration, selection, and pursuit of meaningful careers; career counseling; career fairs; seminars; resume writing; interview tips, and more.
Center for Mental Health Care & Resources
Services include testing and assessment, referral to support services, short-term individual counseling, group counseling, couples counseling, crisis intervention, as well as mental health workshops, and consultation for faculty and staff, family and friends of Tech students.
Students can arrange an appointment by stopping by the office in person and completing the paperwork. Students who have an emergency situation will be assisted by a staff member as quickly as possible. Counseling sessions are confidential. In the event of an emergency or crisis after hours during evenings and weekends, a counselor can be reached for telephone consultation by calling the center at (404) 894-2575 and following the directions on the voice message.
Office of International Education
The Office of International Education (OIE) develops and implements the Institute’s goals for international education by supporting a range of programs and services for Georgia Tech students, including:
Education Abroad: This program assists students who wish to participate in the many study abroad opportunities sponsored by Georgia Tech. These include more than twenty-five summer programs and more than fifty semester programs offered around the globe. Programs offer a variety of coursework, with at least one program option for each Georgia Tech major.
The International Plan: This is an initiative for undergraduates in participating majors who wish to develop global competence through a combination of internationally focused coursework, international experience (study, work, and/or research abroad), and foreign language study.
Cross-cultural Programs: Working closely with student organizations, OIE supports cross-cultural programs intended to serve the entire campus community. These programs include the annual Culture Fest, International Education Week, the I-House (an international living and learning experience), and cross-cultural communication training for student leaders and Georgia Tech staff.
International Student and Scholar Services: This office provides assistance to F and J visa holders, helping them comply with immigration regulations governing their status and manage cross-cultural adjustment issues.
Students with legal questions should contact the Student Government Association. Legal advice can be obtained over the phone for general legal concerns, such as traffic court cases, criminal cases, and lease and landlord issues. Legal advice can be obtained in person for immigration law concerns. Consultations are private and free of charge. To get advising, you must book an appointment and can do so at the SGA Appointment Scheduler.
