Academic Support

Defining Success

Every semester, you make decisions that influence your future. You choose classes that prepare you for the technical knowledge needed for your career. You perform research, design programs, and participate in group projects. As you define and redefine your success each semester, it's important to assess what is working and determine any adjustments that need to be made.

If at any point you find you need a little extra assistance, we have a team of faculty, staff, and peers ready to help you.

    Samantha Kodikara profile

    “GCS helped me attend BMES 2019 where I was able to present research from my REU at Georgia Tech. The biggest challenge I have faced in college was deciding between a career in research and medicine. I helped come to this decision after completing an REU at Georgia Tech and realizing that I wanted a more patient-centered career.”
