Editor's Notes

Atlanta magazine's Georgia College Guide directory includes all schools that have campuses in the state, offer four-year undergraduate programs, and are accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) or, for satellite campuses, regional equivalents in the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.

Tuition figures are undergraduate and do not include fees or room and board.

HOPE figures are consolidated, including standard HOPE and Zell Miller awards.

Many schools still only use math and critical reading SAT scores for admissions. For that reason, we have noted composite math and reading scores to provide consistent comparison. When available we have noted the composite three-part scores. The 2013 Georgia average on the three-part test was 1452, compared with 1498 nationally.
