Suspension of GMAT/GRE/IELTS/TOEFL testing due to COVID-19

Georgia Tech is aware of the suspension of testing centers due to COVID-19.  The graduate admission and international offices in conjunction with Institute leadership are working to find alternatives for those applicants impacted by these test delays and the global health emergency.
