Georgia Military College offers discount to Law Enforcement

Georgia Military College offers discount to Law Enforcement Officials

Over the last five years, Georgia Military College has forged new growth in new territories across the state. With that growth comes new ideas, new practices, and new ways to serve our students, a good bit of those students looking to further their education after already beginning their careers. With that in mind, GMC began brainstorming how the college could better serve the community, and what better way to give back than to give to those that protect us on a regular basis, our law enforcement officials.

On Tuesday, May 15, 2018, Georgia Military College rolled out a new discount on tuition fees for law enforcement officials looking to continue their higher education. A 10 percent discount will be given to any law enforcement official that wants to pursue either an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree, or a Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degree. This discount is available at all 14 of Georgia Military College’s campuses, as well as GMC’s online program.

Major Scott Deason, a patrol officer with the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office, is Georgia Military College’s first student to take advantage of this discount. Deason says completing his degree was always a goal of his, and now he can do that without as much of the financial burden that comes along with that.

“For years I’ve wanted to complete my degree but as it often happens, life and financial obligations take priority. Once I was made aware that GMC was offering this discount, it gave me the means to make my dream a reality,” Deason said. “GMC has always worked on maintaining a positive relationship with law enforcement and this discount is another way they give back to my brothers and sisters who serve and protect. The school’s motto is ‘start here… go anywhere,’ and the financial assistance with this discount gives me a head start.”

Georgia Military College offers various program options, including an AAS in Criminal Justice, as well as a BAS in Business Management following the completion of that AAS program. Georgia Military College President, Lieutenant William B. Caldwell, IV, says GMC wants to make it as easy as possible for law enforcement officials to come back to school, and this is one way of doing so.

“Our law enforcement and first responders are so important, and we can’t function as a community without them. That’s why we wanted to give back something to show them how much we appreciate what they do,” Caldwell said.
