Affiliate is an official Georgia Tech status granted by host departments to guests of the Institute or members of an affiliated organization. Affiliates must be participating in activities that support our Institute’s mission and require access to our campus facilities and/or our internal information technology systems. Affiliates are not paid on Georgia Tech payroll.
There is no generic affiliate job code. Instead, there are six distinct types of affiliates:
- Business Partners/Contractors
- Georgia Tech Entities and Affiliated Organizations
- Short-term Research/Access (less than 6 months)
- Long-term Research/Collaboration
- Former Paid Employees – no longer on campus
For job codes, definitions, examples, term lengths and requirements for each type of affiliate, please review the Affiliate Categories chart.
Note: Postdoctoral Scholars with external award funding (fellowships and training grants from U.S. federal or private agencies) are no longer in job code 995XA7; instead use 918BOO. Use of this code requires review/approval by Research Faculty Affairs.
