*Duplicated Headcount: A GPC student may have attended more than one campus location. In such cases, the student is counted once in each location category where they attended. As a result, if all the campus location category headcounts were added together, their sum would be larger than the overall GPC headcount due to this duplication.

**Campus Enrollment Data: derived from USG ADM file and Banner data of Georgia Perimeter College

***FirstGeneration Students: Student data based on New Student headcount and is self-reported on applications. Fall 2011 first year of reliable data

****Career Programs Include: Nursing, Dental Hygiene, Library & Information Science Tech., Medical Assisting, Sign Language Interpreting, and Radiologic Technology. Fire Management (no longer accepting new students.)
