An event listing fee of $50 applies. Transaction fees of 5% will be deducted on all transactions, including cancellation refunds.
Programs and events must be associated with official Institute business or approved Student Organization activities (attach appropriate documentation). Sales transactions will not be accepted that result in sales tax or unrelated business income tax (UBIT) obligations. Requests are subject to potential review by legal and/or compliance staff.
Programs may be required to meet minimum participation guidelines.
Listing requests must be made ten (10) business days prior to the event.
Web sales will be advertised as non-refundable except in the event of program cancellation.
Reimbursements will be made at the end of the business month following the month of sales.
The Department/Organization must promptly provide an updated form to the BuzzCard Center for any accounting, point-of-contact, or program changes
Beginning September 1, 2017, the Institute will permit any student who wishes to do so to identify themselves within the student information system with a chosen/preferred first name and/or a middle name or initial in addition to their legal name.
The Institute allows students to specify a chosen/preferred first name and/or middle name or initial by filing with the Registrar’s Office a change of name form. Additional information can be found at the following website: Georgia Tech Registrar's Office Chosen/Preferred Name.
Once the chosen/preferred name appears in Banner/OSCAR students can visit the BuzzCard Center to have a new card printed.
All newly issued cards require identity verification which can only be done in person at the BuzzCard Center.
The BuzzCard is the official identification card of the Georgia Institute of Technology, a Unit of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia, a state agency.
Therefore chosen/preferred name will appear on the front of the card and legal name will appear on the back.
Additionally, your BuzzCard photo will be updated with a new photo taken at the BuzzCard Center.
Students who return their current BuzzCard will not be charged for a new card with their chosen/preferred name.
If the currently issued BuzzCard is not exchanged, a $30 card replacement fee will be assessed.
