Our Athens campus is conveniently located just northwest of downtown. You’ll find our admissions team and classroom space located in a new, four-story brick building at the intersection of Prince Avenue and Oglethorpe. This new 32,700 square foot building is conveniently located within walking distance of Athens’ vibrant and historic downtown district. Piedmont opened an Athens campus 25 years ago. And this relocation illustrates the institution's enduring commitment to the Athens-Clarke County community.
The Athens campus is a branch campus of Piedmont University. Piedmont University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) to award baccalaureate, masters, specialist, and doctorate degrees. The accreditation of the branch campus is dependent on the accreditation of the parent campus. Questions about the accreditation of Piedmont University may be directed in writing to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, GA 30033-4097, by calling (404) 679-4500, or by using information available on SACSCOC’s website (www.sacscoc.org).
