Message from the Chief Academic Officer
Thank you for choosing Georgia Military College! I am excited that GMC is your college of choice. GMC was first founded in 1879, and while it stems from a military background of “Duty, Honor, and Country,” only 2% of the student body participates in the Corps of Cadets at the Main Campus in Milledgeville. The majority of GMC’s students commute to one of its 12 community college campuses across the state of Georgia or choose to participate online through GMC’s Global Online College. GMC ensures that all our students experience a college atmosphere and curriculum focused on character, ethics, and leadership skills regardless of location or course modality. We pride ourselves on offering an academic curriculum steeped in “Character Above All” from our First Year Experience program to teaching important workforce skills in our core courses like critical thinking, written communication, quantitative literacy, global competency, and problem solving, along with the content of your major.
GMC’s #1 Initiative is to “Contribute to Student Success.” We are here to guide you in your academic journey. Each of you will have professional advisors or success coaches to assist you with identifying a major, planning the goals you want to achieve, and helping you stay on path to graduation. Our faculty members bring expertise in each subject area to the classroom, but they also focus on the Community College experience. So, while all classes have their rules and responsibilities that you must follow as stated in the syllabi and College Catalog, we strive to answer your questions, assist you when you need that extra help, and direct you to the many services that our college offers. GMC offers free tutoring for every student and provides Academic Success Coaches who offer guidance in areas like time management, test taking skills, and stress reduction. All you have to do is take advantage of what GMC has to offer, and always ask questions or ask for assistance when you need it.
GMC has traditionally offered Associate (two-year) degrees for its students who want to graduate and then transfer into a four-year college or university, and we have Transfer Agreements to allow you to transfer your credits from GMC to these other colleges. GMC also offers four-year “Bachelors of Applied Science” degrees for employees currently in the workforce or students wanting to enter the workforce with advanced technical experience in a variety of fields.
GMC strives to provide, “Education Your Way.” We realize that you may need a format that fits the demands of your life. GMC provides the traditional in-seat classes at our campuses, as well as professionally developed online courses through our Global Online College. We also offer hybrid courses, which feature a mixture of in-seat and online learning; and even remote learning courses, which feature a professor teaching the course and interacting with students live in a classroom, which students may remote into from another campus. You can take advantage of a variety of these educational formats to fit your lifestyle and achieve your goal.
Your future is in your hands, and GMC provides you the opportunity to develop the knowledge, skills, and flexibility to reach success and achieve your goals.
