Online Students

Perimeter College Online is the largest online service in the University System of Georgia. The College offers most core courses online, while specific guided pathways, such as Business Administration, Criminal Justice and Teacher Education, also can be completed online. Students can elect to take a combination of online and on-campus courses to fit their degree and schedule needs. Because a limited number of guided pathways are provided completely online, most students elect to take a combination of online and on-campus courses. Online courses include accounting, computer science, education, English, math, Spanish and many more. Review Perimeter College’s schedule of classes in our catalog.

Note: Admissions requirements vary by student type. Perimeter College students may choose to enroll in Online Only courses or a combination of online and on-campus courses.


  • Perimeter College students taking Online Only courses may receive an exemption from immunization requirements by completing Perimeter College’s Certificate of Immunization form and checking the appropriate exemption box.
  • Immunization requirements remain in force for students taking a combination of online and on-campus courses. A student will be unable to enroll for a campus course until immunization requirements are satisfied. Perimeter College recommends all students satisfy immunization requirements in case on-campus and online courses are necessary to complete an academic program degree.


Remote testing is available for applicants seeking admission or students taking online courses.
