How do I balance the demands of Professional Education programs with my career, family life, and personal needs?

Professional Education programs and degrees are designed specifically for working professionals and give you multiple options for maximum flexibility; however, enrollment in any program is a significant undertaking and will compete with other demands. You should carefully consider your decision to apply after securing the support of your employer, family, and other affected parties.

I don't have the financial support of my employer. Can I still apply? What type of financial assistance is available?

To apply for financial assistance, please contact the Office of Student Financial Planning and Services at 404.894.4160 or visit www.finaid.gatech.edu. Please remember that you are responsible for securing financial resources to pay for all program costs and you must maintain payments in good standing to continue participation in the program without interruption.
