As a new member of the Georgia Tech community, you should take time to review the expectations and policies that are established for the protection of all students, faculty, and staff. Many of these were introduced at FASET but the list below provides specific links to some of the most important. If you have any questions about any of these policies, be sure to ask your academic advisor, GT 1000 instructor, professors, peer leader or professional housing staff member, staff member in the Dean of Students office, or other campus administrator. These individuals can often point you to the correct department or individual to help you find the information you need.
