Self-Service vetting not available for gt account activation

In some instances applicants may not be able to fully activate their GT account on their own.

If you get the "self-service vetting is not available for you" message you will need to submit a photo ID with name and date of birth to begin the vetting process.

There should be a link on the page that will allow you begin this process.  If you do not see a link please go to and submit a ticket.

  • For service type, please select GT Account.
  • You should then select the option for GT Account Activation Assistance.
  • When asked if you have submitted your Ga Tech application select Yes.
  • In the brief description box please enter your full name as you entered it on the application and your gtID (if known) and explain that you were not able to do the self-service vetting.

The Office of Graduate Studies is not able to assist with this aspect of the account setup process.
