Perimeter College in Newton County opened its doors in 2007, thanks to strong community support and a 100-acre land donation from the Arnold Fund. The Newton Campus was welcomed as good news for students in the eight southeast metropolitan Atlanta counties the campus serves. A highlight of the campus is a vibrant student life program providing a wide array of activity options.
Georgia State University’s Perimeter College at the Newton Campus serves the dual enrollment, international, online, transfer, and first-time associate degree seeking freshman students.
We offer a strong Honors program. Many home-schooled and transient students choose Perimeter College.
Each campus contains free parking areas for students, faculty, staff and visitors, but permits are required, and regulations apply. Permits are available free of charge from the Public Safety office on each campus during regular business hours.
