Often, these schools have offered online education for many years and feature an extensive set of courses and degrees. Some, such as Argosy University and ITT Technical Institute, even have physical campuses in Georgia where students can attend classes.

Degree candidates won't be alone in the state of Georgia; 18 percent of Georgians 25 or older have earned a Bachelor's degree and 10.4% have earned a graduate or professional degree, as reported by the U.S. Census Bureau in 2012.

There are 3.8 million employed people in Georgia, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Employment and Wage Estimates from 2013, who make an annual mean salary of $44,040. This is slightly below the average salary for Bachelor's degree holders in Georgia, as reported by the U.S. Census Bureau in 2012: they make an average of $48,704, while those with a graduate or professional degree make $60,720.

This data indicates that if you live in Georgia, there's a much better chance of earning a higher wage with a college degree. Georgia's online college scene offers an array of institutions and program types to choose from. There are 76 institutions listed by the National Center for Education Statistics where students can earn Bachelor's degrees in the state of Georgia through both campus-based and online programs.

While many online degrees can be completed entirely over the Web, some programs may require a minimum amount of classroom attendance. In addition, some schools offer hybrid degree programs, allowing students to attend classes both online and on campus.
