Transfer programs are designed for students who plan to transfer to four-year colleges or universities upon the completion of two years of academic work at Georgia Perimeter College. In addition to variations in general education requirements, senior colleges and universities vary in the nature and number of professional courses that should be taken during the freshman and sophomore years. When planning a program with an advisor, students who have determined which profession or occupation they plan to enter should study the catalog of the institution to which they plan to transfer. Students who change their major upon transfer to a University System of Georgia college or university may have to complete additional hours of coursework beyond those required for completion of the baccalaureate degree program. Students who complete a transfer program are eligible for an Associate of Arts degree or an Associate of Science degree.
