REP Program for Freshmen

Students who are going to start their studies at GSU and then transfer to another REP Program institution.

 Academic Advisement

Academic advisement is very important for the REP Program student because students begin the courses required for the engineering major. From the very beginning, students in the transfer program take courses in math, science, and engineering each term. The other requirements of the University System Core Curriculum are spread throughout the entire four to five years of the engineering course of study, with only the two Freshman English composition courses, one course in U.S. History, an American Government course, and a FYE course required while at Georgia Southern.


Beginning Math Level Guidelines

The most important decision that an engineering student like you will face at the beginning of your college career is where to begin the math sequence.  The first credited math course toward the engineering degree is Calculus I (MATH 1441).

After Calculus 1, students will take a sequence of:

  • Two 4 credit-hour calculus courses
  • One special 3 credit-hour linear algebra for engineers course
  • One 3 credit-hour differential equations course

Some students may require additional preparation in math before beginning with the Calculus I course.  In that case, the student should take college algebra or pre-calculus first.  However, these courses will be considered preparatory in nature and do not count toward the engineering degree.  Students who do not begin with Calculus I should consider attending the summer session following their freshman year or plan on taking more than two years to complete the pre-transfer course of study.
