Transient Students

Transient status means that a student is admitted to Georgia Military College for a specified period of time, normally a single term, with the understanding that the student is to return to the prior college at the opening of the next term. Typically, transient students are only attending GMC to take a few courses. An applicant who is enrolled in another college or university and meets minimum Georgia Military College freshman or transfer admission requirements may seek a one-term admission to Georgia Military College.

The following documents and fees are required:

  • A $35 non-refundable application fee.
  • A properly completed official application form.
  • An official letter from the registrar of the institution in which the student is regularly enrolled indicating eligibility to return and recommending admission to Georgia Military College as a transient student to complete specific course work.

Dual Enrollment

Georgia Military College recognizes the need to provide academically talented high school students with opportunities for acceleration of their formal academic programs. This recognition has led to the development of the dual enrollment program in which the student, while continuing his/her enrollment in high school as a  junior or senior, enrolls in courses for college credit.  Minimum admission standards for the dual enrollment program are listed in the following sections.

  • Check with your high school counselor for any required Dual Enrollment sessions, deadlines and requirements.
  • Apply Now, create your account and complete your application. Choose your local campus as your home campus location. Your student status is Dual Enrollment.
  • Minimum cumulative unweighted high school grade point average of 2.50 on a 4.00 scale.
  • Complete the Application for Dual Enrollment on the GA Futures website.
  • Schedule an appointment with your high school counselor to determine the college courses you should take.
  • Submit your current official high school transcript, PSAT, SAT, ACT, or placement scores. Placement is currently being made solely on the basis of either your high school transcript, PSAT, SAT or ACT score.
    • If SAT/ACT scores are submitted, then they must meet the following requirements:
      • SAT Critical Reading score of at least 480 (prior to March 2016),  OR an SAT Reading score of at least 26 (after March 2016), OR ACT English score of at least 20.
