1900 Perimeter College

Perimeter College is part of Georgia State University, a diverse, multi-campus urban research university in metropolitan Atlanta. The college is the major provider of associate degrees and student transfer opportunities in Georgia and a gateway to higher education, easing students’ entry into college-level study.

More than 21,000 students, representing all ages and backgrounds, are enrolled in Perimeter College. Through the college, Georgia State serves the largest number of dual enrollment, international, online, transfer and first-time freshman students in the University System of Georgia. High-achieving students gain access to a strong honors program. Military students and veterans find support at the university’s Military Outreach Center, recognized as one of the best in the country.

With more than 3,300 international students from 150 countries, the college provides English as a Second Language courses, as well as robust tutoring centers on all campuses to promote academic success for all students.

Courses are offered online and at five campuses with options to earn associate degrees from Georgia State in more than 30 guided pathways. Students who successfully complete their tracks of study can graduate with an associate of science, associate of arts or an associate of applied science degree. Because Perimeter College is part of Georgia State, students who earn their associate degree can seamlessly transition into another college at the university to complete their bachelor’s degree.

The college also offers career programs—nursing, dental hygiene and radiologic technology—in which students are prepared for immediate careers.

Georgia State campuses provide students attending Perimeter College an active environment, with a wide range of opportunities. Clubs and organizations, student life events, and health and wellness programs round out the college experience.

1990 Career Programs

Career Programs

Career programs are designed for students who wish to complete a college program that will prepare them to enter employment at a level of competence requiring more than a high school education, but less than a four-year college or university degree.  As such, they do not have A-E sections of the Core Curriculum, but instead have sections that are specific to each program. Career programs are specifically designed for students who wish to prepare for a career through a short, intensive program of specialized study and general education. While the emphasis in career education is on specialized offerings, each degree program includes a selection of courses from an approved core of general education.
