Here are the top five reasons why Atlanta Metropolitan State College is the college for the ATL:

The No. 1 reason:

Simply because Atlanta Metropolitan State College (AMSC) is No. 1.

  • No. 1 graduation rate in the University System of Georgia for the associate’s degree.
  • No. 1 graduation rate for African Americans for associate’s degree.
  • No. 1 in affordability; AMSC offers the greatest value of all bachelor’s degree-granting institutions in the city of Atlanta. You graduate from AMSC with a bright future, not crushing debt.

Reason No. 2:

AMSC is the only four-year, public-access institution in the city of Atlanta.

  • This means that AMSC is the premier institution of choice for those who seek a high-quality education in a supportive, caring environment.
  • Classes are held seven days a week on a beautiful campus with abundant green space on the MARTA line.
  • You have choices: traditional, online and hybrid courses are available.
  • You will not get lost in the crowd or overlooked by faculty members. At AMSC, if you miss [a] class, your professor is likely to call and check on you.
  • AMSC is the impact and opportunity institution for the city. There is no other.

Reason No. 3:

AMSC is also the only public four-year college that bears the name of the ATL in its name. In essence, it was created to be Atlanta’s college. It is AMSC’s birthright.

Reason No. 4:

The ATL is a global city. With a bachelor’s degree from AMSC, you can take on the world. Just look at the Class of 2018 graduates from one academic area alone.

  • Four graduates went on to pharmacy school
  • Three graduates went to medical school
  • One graduate went to dental school
  • One graduate went to graduate school

Reason No. 5:

AMSC staff members are eagerly standing by to answer your questions and help you move forward. Get your dreams on the fast track in the ATL at AMSC. We are accepting applications now for next semester.
