What Students Are Saying

2.73 Average Rating
GPC is a great school for non-traditional students. I don't feel like I stick out as a student in my 30s. Also, they offer a [credit] transfer admission guarantee program for when I transfer to my next school to complete my degree.
Lydia from Duluth, GA
Georgia Perimeter is a great school for all students especially if your transitioning from High School to College. Georgia Perimeter College offers a great atmosphere to test the waters before plunging into a university setting (often with higher tuition rates). For me Georgia Perimeter has built my confidence by having great teachers who interact with their students and provide one on one attention.

Georgia Perimeter College is an affordable alternative to big-name universities that offers a great education nonetheless. It's conveniently located to many standbys and has easy access to the Metro system for commuters.
