2020 Georgia Higher Education Directory
A look at Georgia’s more than 80 institutions of higher learning, along with the agencies that oversee them and other resources
This year’s Higher Education Directory arrives at a time unlike any other since Georgia Trend
launched this guide 20 years ago. COVID-19 has significantly altered how students and colleges
around the state plan to move through the 2020-2021 academic year.
While all universities are adhering to guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC), each are going about it in different ways. As of press time, the University
System of Georgia’s 26 institutions had planned for students to return to campus for a combination of in-person and online classes in August. Masks are required to be worn inside campus facilities where six feet of distancing is not possible.
The Technical College System of Georgia’s 22 schools, which typically do not have on-campus
housing, are instituting various combinations of in-person and virtual classes.
Some private colleges, like Morehouse, Spelman and Emory, are starting this fall semester with all
classes, with few exceptions, going virtual. Still others, like Berry College, are instituting strict hygiene and travel restrictions and altering the school calendar to keep students safe while learnin and living on campus.
No matter how colleges move forward through this pandemic, the information in this guide can be
a resource to our readers about the institutions of higher learning in our state. Georgia Trend’s 2020
Higher Education Directory features degree-granting schools that have a physical presence in Georgia and are eligible for HOPE scholarship enrollments. Listings include contact information provided by the institutions. N/A indicates information was not available or is not applicable. – The Editors
