Perimeter College provides more than access to a college education; it paves the way for its students to succeed. Since 2014, Perimeter’s three-year graduation rate has more than tripled, and in the 2019-2020 academic year, we awarded 17 percent more associate degrees than in the previous one. Perimeter students — regardless of race, ethnicity or income — now graduate at similar rates, mirroring the student success of Georgia State’s Atlanta Campus. The Chronicle of Higher Education ranks us 20th among two-year colleges nationally for our higher rates of students staying the course and advancing their education. Nearly 83 percent of Perimeter students completed their programs, transferred or remained enrolled three years after starting.* I invite you to learn more about Perimeter College and how we partner with our students and our communities.
