The University of West Georgia is a comprehensive, residential State University located in Carrollton, Georgia, approximately 50 miles (80 km) west of Atlanta, Georgia. It has an enrollment of about 10,111 students as of Spring 2008. With a student/faculty ratio of 17 to 1, the university's motto is "Educational Excellence in a Personal Environment." The University is built on a 394 acre (2 km²) Carrollton, Georgia campus. The University has also received a land gift of 246 acres (1.00 km2) from the city of Carrollton, Georgia . Off-campus classes are available in Dalton, Newnan, Georgia Highlands College in Rome, and at several other community locations throughout the state. In recent years, the university has been named by the Princeton Review as one of the Best Southeastern Colleges and one of America's Best Value Colleges. Its 109 programs of study include 60 at the bachelor's level, 45 at the master's and specialist's, two at the doctoral level and two at the post-master’s certificate level. Online courses are available for both undergraduate and graduate students seeking flexibility in time and location.[citation needed] UWG is home to the state's only Honors College. The university's Advanced Academy of Georgia is one of only about 12 U.S. programs that allow gifted high-school-age students to earn concurrent high school and college credit while living on campus in a full-time residential program.
