Georgia Tech provides an outstanding educational experience both inside and outside the classroom, and with your help your student will succeed.

Parent and Family Programs is here to support you as you support your students throughout their Georgia Tech experience. While navigating our website you'll find valuable resources that will assist you along the way, and events that will allow you to connect with the Institute and your student.

The Parent and Family Calendar/Handbook for 2023-24 is available to buy in print!

This GT-spirited wall calendar shares campus resources, important dates, and discusses common student experiences. It contains great tips for families and offers helpful resources for you and your student.

If you are a new family, you will receive a calendar when you attend an in-person FASET Parent Orientation session; your guest registration fee covers the cost of one copy per family. Parents who are not attending FASET in person can purchase a calendar to be mailed to them.

A PDF is available for free download. 


Take a moment to write some kind words to your student reminding them how special they are and how much you love them. 

You may personalize online our postcard. Once you have completed it you will be able to download it and send it as a PDF attachment to your student.
