Why pay more for the same degree?

Why pay more for core curriculum when you take the same accredited courses at GMC for less, and then transfer to the four-year college of your choice? Here’s a cost comparison:

“I will finally be graduating with my Bachelors of Supervision and Management this month. I would not have been able to achieve this milestone without the guidance of those at GMC. I will forever be grateful for all the things I have learned during my time here.”

Recent Grads

“I knew that this was the school that I needed to take my academic journey to the next level! Throughout my time here at Georgia Military College, I had by far some of the best experiences! GMC opened so many doors for me during my time here and molded me into a person of more defined character”

– Shemar Bryant

“I am a mom of 3 kids all under the age of 10. So on top of being a mom and wife, I also work at a children’s hospital in the PICU. I am a wife to an army veteran , who also serves in the National guard, so a lot of the time I am doing the mom thing alone . I went to Georgia Military college to get my pre reqs for nursing school done. It hasn’t been easy, and the teachers have always had my best interest and wanted me to succeed. There hasn’t been one time where I had a teacher who didn’t care. I am currently applying for nursing schools in my area to get my RN BSN. If I had to do it all over again, I would still choose Georgia Military College.”

– Courtney Morton

“I enrolled with Georgia Military College in the winter 2021 term after graduating from high school in the fall of 2020. GMC has really furthered my education especially in Kinesiology and Physical Therapy. Without the help of GMC officials and staff, I do not think I would be able to graduate as early as I am today. After graduating from GMC on May 28th, I plan to enroll in the Physical Therapy Assistant Program (PTA) at Albany State University (ASU) to earn my PTA license. In conclusion, Georgia Military College has really excelled me to greater heights educationally and socially.”

– Kemuel Terry
