Consumer Information Disclosure

2024 Schedule

The Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 requires that colleges make available to current and prospective students essential information concerning each institution’s academic programs, retention rates, graduation rates, crime reports, financial aid procedures, and more to better inform higher education consumers.

The Higher Education Act protects the consumer’s right to know important facts about each institution’s student services, student success metrics, campus safety and security, the cost to attend, and other information needed to make fully informed choices when selecting colleges and universities.

It is the College’s hope that centralization of this information makes it easier for prospective students, enrolled students, and their families to access the information they need to make the best possible decisions.

For additional information about Georgia Military College and a comparison to other institutions of higher education, please see the College Navigator website maintained by the U.S. Department of Education.

Drug & Alcohol Abuse Prevention Program

Georgia Military College is a Drug-Free School (GMC Policy 5007 “Drug-Free Workplace”). Drug-Free Schools and Campuses Federal Regulations require that, as a condition of receiving funds or any other form of financial assistance under any federal program, an institution of higher learning must certify that it has adopted and implemented a program to prevent the unlawful possession, use or, distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol by students and employees.

On the Milledgeville campus, the Department of Health Services sponsors ongoing programs specifically addressing substance abuse, responsible decision-making, and healthy lifestyles. Literature and pamphlets available through Health Services and participation in National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week and National Collegiate Drug Awareness Week are examples of such programs. For main campus students seeking assistance with suspected drug or alcohol problems, Academic Support Services and Health Services offices are available for initial dialogue and assistance in defining the extent of any problem.

Employees should seek assistance through the Human Resources Office. If a substance abuse problem is determined to exist, referral may be made to the Oconee Center Alcohol and Drug Service (478-445-5518) or other certified rehabilitation programs. Campus/Extension Center students should see the Assistant Director who will provide informational materials and refer students to the local Hospital.

Educational Programs

Electronic Communication

In accordance with Georgia Military College policy (Student-Services-020823.pdf (, every student is required to have an email address to which official college communications can be sent.

Emergency Response and Evacuation Procedures

Georgia Military College has an Emergency/Disaster Preparedness SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) that provides guidelines, structure, and a process in dealing with a wide range of crises. This manual describes what GMC will do to prevent and manage crises to minimize their impact on the school and the student body.

In the event of a natural or man-made crisis or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees occurring on the campus, GMC has procedures to notify the campus community immediately. The primary communication method is the Regroup of emergency notifications to student cellular phones. A series of loudspeakers in each building on the Milledgeville campus follow this method. This voice or tone notification can be activated remotely by Campus Police and certain college administrators. Within an individual building, in Milledgeville and the satellite sites, the Senior Building Occupant is responsible for locking down the building, notifying law enforcement, as appropriate, and notifying the student body. An email notification is also available for staff, faculty, and students with a GMC email account.

Georgia Military College will, without delay, and taking into account the safety of the community, determine the content of the notification and initiate the emergency notification system, unless the notification will, in the professional judgment of responsible authorities, compromise efforts to assist victims or to contain, respond to, or otherwise mitigate the emergency.

In the event of a potential emergency, GMC Campus Police, and the Senior Building Occupant will immediately investigate to confirm the situation. If the emergency is confirmed, notification procedures outlined in the SOP will be followed. The Senior Building Occupant alerts law enforcement/Campus Police and the Dean of Students. The Dean notifies the Chief of Staff and, if appropriate, convenes the Crisis Management Response Team. Campus Police, in consultation with the Dean of Students, will initiate the emergency notification system.

The Office of Communications will notify the larger community through press releases.

Georgia Military College tests the emergency communication and evacuation procedures at least annually. All sirens are operational. Moreover, GMC uses a security monitoring company that regularly tests the system and each of the components.

Refund Policies

When a student withdraws during a term, the amount of federal financial aid earned by the student is determined on a pro-rata basis up to the end of the 60% of the term. For example, if the student has completed 30% of the term, he or she has earned 30% of the aid originally scheduled to be received. Once a student has completed more than 60% of the term, he or she has earned all of his or her federal financial aid. (Federal Work Study funds are excluded from the return of Title IV funds requirements.)

If a student has received excess fund, the College must return a portion of the excess equal to or the lesser of:

  • The student’s institutional charged multiplied by unearned percentage of funds, or
  • The entire amount of the excess funds.

If the aid to be returned is in the form of a loan that has been released to the student (or parent) borrower, the student (or parent) can repay the loan in accordance with the terms of the promissory note over a period of time. If the aid to be returned is in the form of grant funds, the law provides that the student may repay 50% of the grant rather than 100%.

Within 30 days of the date of GMC’s determination that a student withdraws, GMC will provide written notification to the student, or parent in the case of a parent PLUS loan, that outlines results of the refund calculation and post-withdrawal disbursements eligibility, if applicable. Any unearned Title IV funds are returned within 45 days of the date GMC determined the student withdrew.

Student Outcomes

Textbook information

The college has instituted a textbook program to provide quality textbooks to our students at the most reasonable price. A book fee is included in the registration charges when a student is registered for classes. Each class typically requires access to a specific book or set of books.

Students are required to obtain all required textbooks and supplemental materials. Some classes have electronic textbooks (e-textbooks) and required supplemental materials that are provided to the student on the first day of class at no additional charge beyond the book fee. For classes that require a hardcopy of a text, textbooks are checked out at the campus bookstore in the student’s name and must be returned at the end of each term by the advertised due date to avoid late charges.

If a book is not returned or is damaged and deemed to be unusable, a Book Replacement Fee will be assessed. Acceptance of the books is considered implied consent to use Federal Student Aid (FSA) funds to pay the term’s book fees. Students receiving FSA funds may choose to opt out of the book rental program. Students may choose to purchase books and supplies from other vendors.

Detailed instructions on opting out of the textbook program are found on the GMC website. Some classes require additional books, manuals, or supplementary material which is not part of the textbook program. These requirements will be outlined in the syllabus for the class. It is the student’s responsibility to purchase these additional materials. If the student has approved Financial Aid above the cost of tuition/fees, the student may elect to charge the materials to their student account; no written authorization is required.

Nondiscrimination and Compliance

It is GMC policy that students, staff, administrators, and faculty are entitled to a working environment and educational environment free of discriminatory harassment. Georgia Military College harassment policy is not meant to inhibit or prohibit educational content or discussions inside or outside of the classroom that include germane, but controversial or sensitive subject matter. The sections below describe the specific forms of legally prohibited harassment that are also prohibited under Georgia Military College policy.

Discriminatory and Bias-Related Harassment constitutes a form of discrimination that is prohibited by law. Georgia Military College harassment policy explicitly prohibits any form of harassment on the basis of actual or perceived membership in a protected class, by any member or group of the community, which creates a hostile environment, both objectively and subjectively.

A hostile environment may be created by oral, written, graphic, or physical contact or conduct that is sufficiently severe, persistent, or pervasive so as to interfere with, limit, or deny the ability of an individual to participate in or benefit from educational programs or activities, employment access, benefits, or opportunities. Merely offensive conduct or harassment of a generic nature not on the basis of a protected status may not result in the imposition of discipline under Georgia Military College policy, but will be addressed through confrontation conducted in a civil manner, remedial actions, education, or effective utilization of conflict resolution mechanisms. Georgia Military College condemns and will not tolerate discriminatory harassment against any employee, student, visitor, or guest on the basis of any status protected by college policy or law.

Sexual Harassment Both the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the State of Georgia regard sexual harassment as a form of sex/gender discrimination and, therefore, as an unlawful discriminatory practice. Georgia Military College has adopted an amended version of the EEOC definition of sexual harassment, in order to address the special environment of an academic community, which consists not only of employer and employees, but of students as well. Sexual harassment is: • unwelcome, sexual or gender-based verbal, written, or physical conduct that is • sufficiently severe, persistent, or pervasive that it • has the effect of unreasonably interfering with, denying, or limiting employment opportunities or the ability to participate in or benefit from the college’s educational, social, or residential program, and is • based on power differentials (quid pro quo), the creation of a hostile environment, or retaliation.

Sexual Misconduct Georgia Military College has defined categories of sexual misconduct, as stated below, for which action under this policy may be imposed. Generally speaking, Georgia Military College considers Non-Consensual Sexual Intercourse violations to be the most serious, and therefore typically may impose the most severe sanctions, including suspension or expulsion for students and termination for employees.

However, Georgia Military College reserves the right to impose any level of sanction, up to and including suspension, expulsion, or termination, for any act of sexual misconduct or other gender-based offenses based on the facts and circumstances of the particular complaint. Acts of sexual misconduct may be committed by any person upon any other person, regardless of the sex, gender, sexual orientation, or gender identity of those involved.

Violations include:

  1. Sexual Harassment (as defined in section “b” above)
  2. Non-Consensual Sexual Intercourse Defined as: • any sexual penetration or intercourse • however slight • with any object • by a person upon another person • that is without consent or by force
  3. Non-Consensual Sexual Contact Defined as: • any intentional sexual touching • however slight • with any object • by a person upon another person • that is without consent or by force 4. Sexual Exploitation Sexual Exploitation refers to a situation in which a person takes non-consensual or abusive sexual advantage of another.
