About Georgia 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.

Courses are offered online and at five campuses with options to earn associate degrees from Georgia State in more than 30 areas of concentration. 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.


Campus information

Alpharetta Campus
This thriving and diverse campus initially opened in 2000. In 2010, course offerings were expanded to include all academic areas, including 2000-level classes and additional day and evening courses.

Clarkston Campus
The Clarkston Campus is one of the most culturally diverse in the University System of Georgia, with students from more than 150 countries.

Decatur Campus
The rolling, landscaped lawns, miles of sidewalks and pedestrian nature trail of Perimeter College’s Decatur Campus make it a popular destination for students and nearby residents alike.

Dunwoody Campus
The Dunwoody Campus sits on 100 acres in a residential district of north DeKalb County, where the college has developed a strong reputation as a community partner and institution for higher learning.

Newton Campus
The campus in Newton County opened its doors in 2007—thanks to strong community support and a 100-acre land donation from the Arnold Fund. Newton is a relatively small campus that delivers big results for students pursuing a degree.

The college has five locations in metro Atlanta and the largest online program within the University System of Georgia.


Georgia State’s transition to a residential university is fairly recent, so facilities are modern and comfortable. University Housing was designed with features and amenities to support your success and meet your needs. You will have conveniences that help you manage your time and resources, common areas and communication tools that help you stay connected to one another and the world at large, and private spaces where you can find solitude and do your own thing.
