THE SECRET’S IN OUR STRATEGY

Special Communities

In our smaller, dedicated learning cohorts, find your niche and network with peers with similar passions.
  • Meet like-minded in your intimate Perimeter Learning Community to which you’ll be assigned based on your academic interests.
  • Join Perimeter Academy to the beat the crowds to campus and bond with a select group of students in the summer, before classes start.
  • Push and be pushed by other academic standouts in the Honors College.
  • Call on the Military Outreach Center to access essential resources and connect with fellow servicemembers, veterans, reservists and their families.

“I made more friends the first week of Perimeter Academy than ever before. There’s just this connection we all share. Perimeter Academy is not just something that will help you through college; it’ll help you for life. You become a part of a huge family.”

Perimeter Academy, State Farm Scholar

If you lose your HOPE Scholarship due to low grades, the Keep HOPE Alive Scholarship can help you get back on track to regain it. If you’re suddenly unable to pay your tuition in full, the Panther Retention Grant program can supplement your account. And if you’re facing an extreme financial hardship, emergency assistance funds can help.

Continuing Education

After you earn your associate degree at Perimeter, you can transition seamlessly to our Atlanta Campus to access the largest selection of bachelor’s degree programs in Georgia. To do so, you’ll need to have completed 30 or more credit hours, including all core curriculum and high school required courses, with at least a 2.0 grade point average at Perimeter College.
