The Student Achievement Measure is supported by six sponsoring associations, working together to provide a more comprehensive and accurate picture of student progress and completion as students move across institutions and state boundaries.

Georgia State University

Georgia State University (GSU) founded in 1913 is a public research university located in Atlanta, Georgia, the capital and largest city in the state with a metropolitan regional population of more than 5.7 million. In 2016 the university consolidated with Georgia Perimeter College to become one institution promoting both student access and success. The consolidated institution’s mission and goals are encapsulated in the university mission statement: “Georgia State University, an enterprising public research university, transforms the lives of students, advances the frontiers of knowledge and strengthens the workforce of the future. The university provides an outstanding education and exceptional support for students from all backgrounds. Georgia State readies students for professional pursuits, educates future leaders, and prepares citizens for lifelong learning. Enrolling one of the most diverse student bodies in the nation, the university provides educational opportunities for tens of thousands of students at the graduate, baccalaureate, associate, and certificate levels. Georgia State’s scholarship and research focus on solving complex issues ranging from the most fundamental questions of the universe to the most challenging issues of our day. The scholarly work and artistic expression of the university’s faculty create new knowledge, extend the boundaries of imagination, and enhance student learning. The university’s presence in the Atlanta metropolitan area provides extraordinary experiential learning opportunities and supports the work of faculty tackling the challenges of an urbanizing nation and world.” The institution’s goals are further elaborated in the university strategic plan. GSU will: 1. Become a national model for undergraduate education by demonstrating that students from all backgrounds can achieve academic and career success at high rates; 2. Significantly strengthen and grow the base of distinctive graduate and professional programs that assure development of the next generation of researchers and societal leaders; 3. Become a leading public research university addressing the most challenging issues of the 21st century; 4. Be a leader in understanding the complex challenges of cities and developing effective solutions; 5. Achieve distinction in globalizing the university.

  • Students who started at and graduated from Georgia State University are represented by the darker purple bar with the solid black bar underneath (). (This section of the chart Within 6 Years is approximately the same as the federal graduation rate, but it may differ slightly for each institution.)
  • Students who started at Georgia State University and then transferred to and graduated from another institution are represented by the lighter purple bar with the white stripe underneath ()
  • Students who started at and are still enrolled at Georgia State University are represented by the darker aqua bar with two white stripes underneath ().
  • Students who started at Georgia State University and then transferred to and are still enrolled at another institution are represented by the lighter aqua bar with the bottom white stripe ().
  • Students from the original group whose status is unknown are represented by the green bar with the top white stripe (). These students may have graduated or still be enrolled somewhere, but their status could not be determined conclusively.
