Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

The Bang for the Buck for me has to be the learning and tutoring center.
Brooklynn from Lithia Springs, GA
georgia perimeter college is a diverse school that is why this school is so unique you can learn all about different cultures
Samir from Lawrnecville, GA
Classes are affordable, and there are financial aid options directly from the college.
Francisco from Austell, GA
I believe you get a great deal for going to this college. You are basically paying less than half of what other people are paying to go to a state school and learn the same thing.
Christin from Suwanee, GA
A plus for those who may not be ready for the $15,000+ tuition, that you would get at a 4 year. In state students save a lot. Example, a semester I was $1,117. Talk about savings!!!!
Gabrielle from Atlanta, GA
It is certainly more cost effective to take at least core courses at GPC. They are the same courses a student must and will take at any college, except it's greatly reduced tuition.
Lydia from Duluth, GA
DEFINITELY. There's no way that you can find a better deal. It's a great plan for someone who plans to transfer to a 4 year school (like me). Take your prerequisites or get an associate and transfer out. They even have the TAG with many schools in Georgia and even a few out of state. That TAG will save you! The money that you could be spending to learn the same things you would be at another 4 year university will be in your pocket.
Rayana from Snellville, GA
Since I do not have much money at the moment, it has help me by being good price on the tuition and on my books.
Sara from Norcross, GA
The cost is the best part about perimeter. You can get all your core classes done at a fraction of the cost of other colleges and universities. Then once finished with your associates degree at Perimeter, the credits are easily transferred a larger school of your choice.
