Welcome to GPC First Year Experience

When we say “Welcome to Georgia Perimeter College,” we don't say it just once. We keep saying it for months, through our Freshman Year Experience Program—a program designed to make sure you have everything you need to adjust academically and socially to your new surroundings. We're interested in seeing you succeed, and that's why we offer the tools you need to adapt to the demands of college.

The Freshman Year Experience Program begins with orientation, but that's only a start. We offer a wide array of services that can be tailored to your specific needs, whether it's helping you find extra academic assistance or organizing a trip that will let you laugh and learn with your friends. We also have seminars and workshops that offer tips on thriving in your new environment and speakers who will inspire you to aim high.

GPCS 1010, First Year Seminar, is a three credit course that introduces you to college life at GPC, provides information on expectations of college students and strategies for college success, and builds information literacy through investigation of a specific theme. Themes are selected and designed by seminar instructors.

Take advantage of this course and all the services available for a smooth transition to Georgia Perimeter College.
